Encore - 2015
On Saturday, November 14th, over 200 people filled the Holiday Inn Winnipeg Airport ballroom to enjoy the third annual Sons of Italy Encore Dinner/Dance. This years event was in support of the Winnipeg Police Endowment Fund, which is a wonderful initiative that subsidize’s recognized projects within the community. This fund supports the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) vision of creating a culture of safety. This program is intended to enrich the lives of at risk youth across the city.
The Encore Dinner/Dance would not be possible if it was not for the generous support of Mosaic Funeral, Cremation & Cemetery Services. Mosaic has graciously been the title sponsor for the past three years and has been instrumental in the success of the event. A big thank you to our many other sponsors and all those people who came out to support the event.
Guests were treated to a wonderful three course meal prepared by Holiday Inn, which included: salad, pasta and chicken. For dessert, we enjoyed amazing gelato from Mario’s Gelati.
Chief Devon Clunis spoke about the WPS vision for our city. His genuine passion certainly rang true as the entire room was captivated by his powerful message and hopes for the city. A big thank you to Chief Clunis for sharing his vision for a better Winnipeg.
Sons of Italy wishes to thank everyone who contributed and supported the event - this generosity is the driving force behind a safer and better Winnipeg.
