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.
