i'i POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 1 , 2013 Page5 LOMBARDO'S CELEBRATES 50 YEARS IN BUSINESS Lombardo's Funotion Facility Marks Their 50 th Anniversary with a Fundraising Gala to Support Local Veterans From left to right: Francesca Lombardo, David Barros, Nina Lombardo Barros, Vincent Lombardo, Paula Lombardo, Dennis Lombardo, Jessica Lombardo and David Lombardo Lombardo's Function Facility is celebrat- ing their 50 th anniversary this year. Lombardo's was founded in 1963 in East Boston by the late Sal Lombardo and his brother Paul Lombardo. Lombardo's is currently owned and operated by the 3 rd and 4th generations of the Lombardo family who purchased their current Randolph lo- cation in 1983. To celebrate this milestone, the Lombardo Family will host a gala on No- vember 8 th to raise money to support local veterans. They are celebrating with their customers and associates throughout the year with surprises and giveaways. Sal Lombardo, along with his brother Paul Lombardo, owned and operated multiple supermarkets, called Liberty Markets, in the East Boston and North Shore area along with their Sicilian born parents. The con- cept of a function hall was originally gener- ated through associates of Liberty Markets who frequently requested that an empty bowling alley located above the supermar- ket be used for private parties. As requests increased, Sal and Paut saw this as an opportunity to use their experience in the retail food industry to establish a function facility. The bowling alley was converted into "The Boston Room" and in 1969 Lombardo's opened "The East Room," a more luxurious ballroom complete with crystal chandeliers to accommodate more formal events such as weddings and anniversaries. Business was flourishing and Lombardo's became the go-to facility for all types of events such as business meetings and specialty events. With these new markets emerging, the Lombardo family saw the opportunity to expand and purchased their current loca- Vincent's. Lombardo's in Randolph became the home to the largest chandelier in New England standing 23 feet tall and 18 feet wide. It has become a landmark on the South Shore and the background to over 4,000 wedding and prom photos. In 2000, the Lombardo family closed Lombardo's in East Boston and sold Liberty Markets. In 2011, Lombardo's underwent a six month long renovation which included a contemporary design including new decor, furniture and LED lighting systems. In 2012, Vincent's Nightclub updated their interior with a renovated VIP Lounge which offers a luxurious VIP setting complete with private bottle service. The Lombardo Family currently owns and operates Lombardo's Randolph, Vin- cent's Nightclub and multiple commer- cial properties throughout the Greater Boston area. The family is comprised of the third and fourth generations: Vincent Lombardo, Chief Executive Officer; Paula Lombardo, Chief Administrative Office; Dennis Lombardo, Chief Financial Officer; David Lombardo, General Manager; Francesca Lombardo, Creative Marketing Director ald Jessica Lombardo, Financial Administrator. Lombard)'s is celebrating with their staff of over 15,) associates throughout the year with weekly cash drawings, summer out- ings and raffles. They will be honoring their customers with gifts throughout the year. Paula Lombardo says "We hope to continue my father's true legacy of giving back to the local communities with the efforts from our gala in November. What better way to com- memorate 50 years of hard work and suc- tion in Randolph in 1983 along with an cess than by honoring our veterans that on-site nightclub which was renamed, serve our country."
