La Piccola Scuola Italiana di San Francisco

La Dolce Vita

On Saturday March, 7 at Bimbo’s 365 Club, La Piccola Scuola Italiana (The Little Italian School) hosted an unforgettable night of food, fun and festivities, aimed at promoting awareness of our program. Even in this economy La Piccola Scuola managed to raise over $115,000 over the course of the evening, which will help us cover a small gap in funding and plant the seed of the capital campaign that will allow us to keep furthering Italian language, heritage and culture through education!

Over 275 guests were in attendance, and the evening featured a Silent & Live Auction, as well as entertainment by well known local Soprano Heidi Moss, followed by a three course sit down dinner catered by Adriano Paganini's Pomodoro Catering. In addition to the 75+ families and school staff present, the guest list included a large cross section of the Italian-American community as well as business owners, entrepreneurs, representatives from the Italian Consulate and other Italian institutions, and along with key figures of San Francisco’s early childhood education community.
