Page 8 - POST-GAZETTE MAY 20, 2011 ...... THE NATIONAL ITALIAN AMERICAN SPORTS HALL OF FAME NEW ENGLAND CHAPTER Member Bring a The National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame, New England Chapter kicked off another year of fundraising and celebration of Italian American athletes and culture with the annual Member Bring a Friend Dinner held on April 28, 2011 at the Boston Winery. The focus of the evening is to bring everyone together for a fun casual evening of food, entertainment and socializing while giving potential new members an introduction to the history of NIASHF New England Chapter and the goals and events planned for the upcoming year. The Boston Winery was a new venue for the Member Bring a Friend Dinner and all in attendance were delighted with the atmosphere and format. Held inside the actual winery and in a cocktail party style, guests mingled while enjoying pizza, pasta and the wines of the winery. Members and friends also had an opportunity to tour the winery with owner and gracious host, Ralph Bruno, giving them insight into the whole winemaking process. Chairman of the event, Victor Corda did a fantastic job keeping the event fresh and fun, at the same time continuing traditions that attendees have come to expect - tomato plant centerpieces and the TV raffle. To wrap up a pleasant evening, guests enjoyed a final glass of wine while laughing to the comedy of David Russo.
