2017 Gala Benefit Dinner on March 24, 2017!



Dear Friends of La Scuola,

In celebration of our 40th anniversary, I cordially invite you to join the friends and family of La Scuola d’Italia Guglielmo Marconi on March 24th, 2017 at Cipriani 42nd Street, New York, for a very special evening to benefit the outstanding students and faculty of La Scuola.

The generosity of the La Scuola community continues to make it possible for us to offer an unparalleled Pre-K–12 Italian English bilingual educational experience––instruction that not only prepares our students to succeed in their future academic endeavors, but to take their place in our global society. In this, our 40th year, we are proud to be recognized by the State of New York, the Italian Ministry of Education, and the New York State Association of Independent Schools for our academic excellence.

As Head of La Scuola, I know firsthand how important the Gala is in the life of this school–community. Each year, funds raised by the event provide critical support for a wide range of core educational priorities, scholarships, and co-curricular enrichment programs, including art, music, technology, and sports. 

As we look forward to the upcoming move to our new state-of-the-art campus on West 58th Street, I hope you will join us in person to celebrate our rich history and toast our exciting future. I am enclosing four forms that list available levels of support including sponsored tables, promotional opportunities, memorial and honor giving, and direct donations for financial aid. You will also find a form to contribute to the catalog for our silent auction. Your financial support helps us realize our mission and make student success possible.

My sincere thanks for your generosity; I look forward to celebrating with you this important time in the history of our school.Grazie di cuore per la vostra generosità, sarà un immenso piacere celebrare con voi questo importante momento nella storia della nostra Scuola.

With warmth and best wishes for the holidays,

Maria Palandra, PhD

Head of School
