The Penticton Italian Club recently presented the Foundation with a cheque for $20,000. The founding members registered as a formalized Club in 1981. With a focus on promoting Italian culture and supporting Italian immigrants, social and cultural fundraising efforts were subsequently launched. In 1993, the Club became a Society and as such, have had many impacts and successes. Examples of such are planting chestnut trees, partnering with the City of Penticton to construct a gazebo in Rotary Park on Okanagan Beach, and annually donating the various worthy community causes.
