We are about a week away from our 1st annual Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament which will be held Friday, November 18th at Old Pike Country Club in Gladstone, MO. Doors open at 5pm, poker play starting at 6:15pm. I am hopeful that we get a strong member turnout and would encourage you to either play or purchase a ticket and give it to someone who will. The more players we have, the bigger the payouts and the more revenue we generate for UNICO. So please do what you can to spread the word and sell tickets!!! They are $40 in advance/$50 at the door.
Our Christmas dinner is planned for Wednesday, December 7th at Cascone’s Restaurant - Drinks at 6pm, dinner at 7pm. Your spouse or significant other is welcome to join. The cost will be $25 per member and UNICO will cover the cost for your spouse. Once again, we will be enjoying the smooth sounds of Frank Cherrito Sr. throughout the evening. I hope to get a large turnout and ask that you RSVP. If you are unable to make dinner, stop by for an after dinner cocktail or two and celebrate the holidays!
During Frank’s presidency, the idea of giving to four families that could use a helping hand for Christmas was born. To me, this is what Christmas is all about and would like for the chapter to continue doing every year. As with the past couple of years, we need help finding the families so if you know someone out of work or that can use some help this Christmas, let me know. I’m asking for you to submit a brief bio of the family in need with first consideration given to any Italian fam-ily. All information will be kept confidential.
Lastly, we will be gearing up for Festa 2012 shortly after the first of the year, so if you would like to get involved with the planning committee please let our Festa Chairman, Frank Cherrito, know. The Festa will be held at Zona Rosa the first weekend in June.
A voi e la vostra,
