Dear Friends of La Scuola,
It is my great pleasure to invite you to join the friends and family of La Scuola d’Italia Guglielmo Marconi on Friday, March 2, 2018 for a very special evening to benefit the outstanding students and faculty of La Scuola. Our Annual Benefit Dinner will be held this year at Cipriani 55 Wall Street.
The generosity of the La Scuola community continues to make it possible for us to offer an unparalleled Pre-K–12 Italian-English bilingual educational experience –– instruction that not only prepares our students to succeed in their future academic endeavors, but to take their place in our global society. We are proud to have been recognized by the State of New York, the Italian Ministry of Education, and the New York State Association of Independent Schools for our academic excellence. La Scuola is also a Candidate School for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.
As the Head of La Scuola, I know firsthand how important the Annual Benefit Dinner is in the life of our school community. Each year, funds raised by this Gala event provide critical support for a wide range of core educational priorities, tuition support, and co-curricular enrichment programs, including art, music, theater, technology, and sports.
I hope you will join us in person to celebrate our rich history and toast to our exciting future.
I am enclosing four forms that list available levels of support, including sponsored tables, promotional opportunities and direct donations for tuition support. You will also find a form to contribute to the catalog for our silent auction. Your financial support helps us realize our mission and make student success possible.
My sincere thanks for your generosity. We look forward to celebrating with you. Grazie di cuore per la vostra generosità. Sarà un immenso piacere celebrare con voi.
