CAF President Viola Honored at Special Dinner
September 28, 2011 – CAF National President Anthony J. Viola will be honored by Italian-Americans in Government (IAIG) at the non-profit organization’s annual dinner in celebration of Columbus Day at Chateau Briand in Carle Place, NY on October 5.
“I am truly honored to be recognized by the Italian-Americans in Government organization,” says Tony. “The IAIG has been a long time staple in the community for helping others that are less fortunate than most people. The IAIG continuously proves that the size of a non-profit organization does not matter; it is the size of the impact it makes on others that counts. The impact made on local charities in the Long Island area is immense and is appreciated by the recipients. I thank them for all their hard work and for what they have done for the Cooley’s Anemia Foundation over the years.”
This year’s dinner marks the 30th anniversary of IAIG’s founding. The organization is based in Wantagh, NY and is dedicated to providing support to worthy charities. The dinner will also honor Philip Scala, retired supervisory special agent for the FBI and CEO of Pathfinder Consultants International.
CAF congratulates Tony on this singular honor and congratulates IAIG on its wisdom in selecting Tony, as well as on its long history of good works for the community. We also thank IAIG for designating CAF as one of the charities to receive proceeds from this dinner.
The evening begins with a cocktail hour at 6:00; dinner is at 7:30. Tickets are $75 in advance; $100 at the door. For more information, call (516) 420-0847.
