All’ICCC (At the ICCC) – July/August 2022 – Letter from Monica Ercolani


Dear Members,

 

I hope you have had a pleasant summer so far!

Here at the Milford House, we are continuing to work hard, and with a lot of enthusiasm, we are continuing to plan new, great events for our faithful followers and hopefully new, generous supporters.

These last few months, we held many exciting evenings with special guests and great participation. As always, the Aperitivo Italiano series has been an incredible success! At the Sipping at Lake Garda wine tasting on May 3, attendees enjoyed four amazing wines from around Lake Garda, and they were intrigued by Riccardo Guerrieri’s lively presentation.

Ready to join us for happy hour? Bring a friend and join us on Wednesday, July 27 at the Milford House to taste four great Italian wines from Sicily. Presented by George Caflisch.

On May 10, Prof. Roberto Ballarini provided a very insightful evening describing the creativity and innovation of famous Italian old and modern structures. The very attentive and well-prepared audience enjoyed the analysis and asked perceptive questions.

Our Italian language school is always active, and our classes are well attended. I want to take a moment to thank our incredible instructors for working year-round to offer and maintain a high-quality level of teaching.

Summer is always a slow season, but this doesn’t mean we are working less. As a matter of fact, our staff is completely involved in planning our third fashion show and luncheon happening on Wednesday, September 14 at the River Oaks Country Club. This year, we are Celebrating the Jewels of Italy. Rosie Carrabba will be honored as one of the gems who contributed to the promotion of Italian food, wine, and culture in our city. I invite all of you to come and support this sparkling event which will raise more scholarship money for high school and college students in the greater Houston area. I hope to receive a great amount of support and participation!

This year’s Italian Cultural & Community Center (ICCC) Fashion Show & Luncheon will take place on Wednesday, September 14 at River Oaks Country Club. The theme, Celebrating the Jewels of Italy, will pay tribute to those facets of Italy we know and love: fashion, food, wine, artistry and culture. Chaired by Sandra Porter and Gina Gusemano Leck, the luncheon will honor native Houstonian and restaurateur Rose “Rosie” Carrabba, and it will include a fashion show featuring Italian designs curated by Neiman Marcus, lunch, a prosecco/jewel pull, silent auction (launching online on September 6), and the chance to win one of three spectacular pieces of Italian jewelry from Tenenbaum Jewelers. Proceeds from the luncheon will further ICCC’s mission to create opportunities for advanced learning, including assistance to students participating in study-abroad programs in Italy.

To be listed in the invitations, please purchase your sponsorships by August 15, 2022.
