Encore - 2014
On Monday, November 10th, a sold-out crowd of over 300 people filled the CanadInns Pembina Highay to enjoy the 2nd annual Sons of Italy Encore/Musica event. This year’s charity was Villa Rosa, who is a pre and postal natal residence that help some of the most vulnerable pregnant women in Winnipeg.
As guests entered, they were greeted with a complementary class of champagne. They were then treated to a beautiful Italian meal (made by CanadInns) which included: antipasto, penne pasta and meatballs and for desert, biscotti and coffee.
Comedian Dan Verville took the stage after dinner and had the entire venue laughing hysterically from his jokes about cheese and his experiences playing beer league hockey.
The Encore Dinner part of the evening concluded with a wonderful raffle that was compromised of everything from pressure washers to a 55 inch TV.
Musica was the after party portion of the night, which encouraged the younger generation of Winnipeg to come out and support a great cause.
This event would not be made possible if it were not for the generous support from our many sponsors. A big thank you to our title sponsor for the 2nd year in a row: Mosaic Funeral Homes and to all the others who supported us including Dan Verville for donating his time to make for the best evening possible.
