Community Table and Amici D’Italia (Friends of Italy) to Host Boca Raton Italian Street Festival
Boca Raton’s Community Table and Amici D’Italia are pleased to announce the first annual Boca Raton Italian Street Festival. The festivities will be held on Sunday June 21st from 12:00pm-6:00pm just in time for Father’s Day at Community Table. The festival will take place just off of NW 2nd Avenue. This event will also benefit Christine’s Hope for Kids.
The fun-filled family event will have plenty of activities for kids to enjoy. Family fun includes a bounce house, snow cone machine, balloon art, face painting and bocce ball. Entertaining the crowd will be South Florida’s finest celebrity DJ Stevie D, and kids will have the opportunity to “Dunk Your Dad” in the water dunking booth. If Dads or kids are up to testing their stomachs, they can participate in the Pizza Challenge- eat a whole pizza in under 12 minutes to win a free shirt and $25 gift card to Community Table. Food specialties include traditional Italian pizza and Community Table’s original menu to satisfy all Italian lovers.
A percentage of the proceeds from the Italian Street Festival will be used towards Christine’s Hope For Kids, a not-for-profit organization that helps less fortunate children and supports local community agencies that work with and benefit children. Jean and John Gianacaci of New Jersey originally started the organization in memory of their daughter Christine, who was killed in Haiti while on a service trip helping the poor. She was traveling with students and teachers from Lynn University in 2010 when the devastating earthquake struck the country. The charity has chapters in both South Florida and New Jersey.
Community Table owner Andrew Stellino and Frank D’Avanzo founded Amici D’Italia- a social group formed to keep Italian culture alive within South Florida. “Our goal with the Italian Street Festival is to support the Italian culture while providing a fun atmosphere for families to enjoy and support Christine’s Hope for Kids,” said Stellino. “Supporting our culture and giving back to our community is important to both Community Table and Amici D’Italia.”
The Italian Street Festival will be sponsored by South Florida Events, 561 Signs, Santos, Eclipse Building Corporation, and Delray Food Service and Equipment. To learn more about the festival, go Community Table’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/communitytableflorida.
