Annual Italian Club Festa Luncheon

The Annual Festa Luncheon sponsored by the Italian Club of Seattle will be held this year at the prestigious Seattle Yacht Club overlooking Portage Bay. The date is Friday, September 15th, from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM. The Seattle Yacht Club offers us a beautiful dining room, great food and free parking, all for the reasonable price of $55 per person. It almost always sells out so we suggest you get your RSVPs in early.

Festa Italiana is happy to announce that this year’s Gill Centioli Award winner is Brian DiJulio, and veteran stage announcer John Venables will be the recipient of the Patricia DeLaurenti Volunteer of the Year Award.

Keynote Speaker

This year’s Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Paolo Feraboli from the world-famous Laboratorio Automobili Lamborghini located in the Interbay neighborhood of Seattle. Dr. Feraboli will speak on the subject of carbon fiber that is lighter than aluminum and stronger than steel as was developed for racecars by Lamborghini and is now used in Boeing airplanes.

To learn a little more about Dr. Feraboli’s work at the lab, check out these two articles by Rita Cipalla in L’Italo-Americano: Opening of the ALACS Laboratory and Lamborghini research in Seattle.
