They start over.

Kindest Giosue Carducci Lodge 146, Sons and Daughters of Italy just donated $45,150 to 24 nonprofits, programs and community projects from January through March using Sons gaming revenue.

From drug and alcohol prevention to education.

From wounded warriors to youngsters playing soccer.

Several minor leagues.

Ronald McDonald House helps families with children in need of essential health care.

Infant development.

Church programs.

Special Olympics.

A renewal of the Veterans Park.


Rehabilitation of the YMCA swimming pool.

The food bank.

The historical society.

The latter are among the beneficiaries of the benevolence of the Lodge.

This charity begins with club members who frequent the lodge.

Their expenses are managed by a volunteer board of directors which distributes the funds to community organizations and institutions.

Every soda, beer, wine or liquor served at the Lodge generates an amount of money to contribute.

The $45,150 isn’t all the Lodge is giving away. It gives more money.

He also organizes fundraising dinners for various causes.

The spaghetti is excellent!

The Lodge, like many social clubs, is required to donate a good portion of its income to charity.

Lodge 146 never hesitates.

On its web page, the Lodge has a very friendly welcome.

Here’s what caught our attention: Every dollar you spend at our club helps make a difference. The Sons proudly support many charitable initiatives in our community each year because we care.

Grazie, sons and daughters of Italy, for your many wonderful gifts to the community!
