Members of the Rehoboth Area Chapter of UNICO National met midsummer to discuss the past year’s events and lay plans for the coming year.
The first fund-raiser will be a Bocce Tournament held in September at Mulligan’s Pointe in Georgetown, which will provide funds for the annual Brian Piccolo Award Ceremony in November. That event grants gifts to all nominees and $1,000 to a local high school team represented by an athlete of Italian heritage nominated by team members, faculty and coaches. Students in good academic standing are honored for their accomplishments and dedication to their school and team. Nominees are also encouraged to include this award on applications for higher learning and employment.
The popular Italian Movie Night returns in January 2022, offering Italian cinema, popcorn and home-made pizza. Other proposed events for the winter and spring include a Carnevale Evening, a PTSA Challenge and a Lasagna Dinner.
Funds raised from these and other programs are used to support local charities and food banks (organizations in need of funds are encouraged to make a formal request), and national charities such as medical research, scholarship programs and more.
