Annual Dinner Dance


Annual Dinner

Since our organization's founding in 1936 Italian Charities of America, Inc. has annually sponsored an Dinner Dance event to celebrate the Italian American community in New York City. The Annual Dinner Dance honors Italian American individuals who have been an instrumental force in preserving Italian American culture, heritage and pride. Italian Charities of America chooses their honorees based on their efforts in making a difference in society and within the Italian American community and causes. We strive to set aside this day to come together and celebrate our heritage but most of all to honor those who share our mission of promoting and preserving Italian American heritage, culture, history and social justice.

On October 23rd, 2022 from 1:00pm to 6:00pm at our 86th Annual Dinner Dance we will be celebrating these Italian American Honorees for their outstanding work and achievements.
