Thankyou Nonno & Nonna

On Sunday the 28th of June, members of IMSMC participated in a fund raiser at the Blacktown Civic Centre.

The event was one persons way of showing appreciation to the many migrants that settled in the Blacktown area. Funds raised on the day were donated to the Muscular Dystrophy foundation.

Our club donated an IMSMC PACK - containing a shirt, visor, patch & wall clock - the value of the package exceeded $100. Our prize contributed to the raffle which raised a significant amount of money, for a very worthwhile cause.

Eight club cars arrived on the day, and created a great deal of nostalgia for the older Italians who came along to the fund raiser, many visitors pausing and reflecting on the "good old days".
As we are aware, Italians are such good "story tellers" - and let me tell you, some of the stories on the day were really good!

Good company & good food were conducive to a great afternoon. The Club Marconi Choir provided aural entertainment. Later in the afternoon, guests were privileged to be entertained by a professional opera singer, who sang some classic Italian opera numbers & local dance groups put on a number of floor shows for all to enjoy.

In all, a relaxing afternoon spent in good company for a worthwhile cause.
