The Rotary Club of Fort Myers is pleased to announce Italian Fest Virtuale, a fund raiser event to be held on November 7, 2020 from 6:30pm- 8:30 pm. The annual signature fund raiser will be held with small groups in private homes due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Usually an outdoor event drawing upwards of 5,000 people, this year’s Rotary Italian Fest Virtuale will revolve around small dinner parties interconnected via Zoom video technology!
The Rotary Club of Fort Myers invites those wishing to support the event to host their own dinner party or donate directly to the cause. Specials and takeout meals are being offered for the event by several local Italian restaurants, including Citrola’s, Mario’s Italian Deli, McGregor Pizza, and Trattoria Mia. Entertainment by Danny Sinoff, old-school jazz pianist, and his band, will be simulcast live via Zoom from the Roadhouse Cafe restaurant.
Like many other festival-style events that have been compromised by COVID-19 restrictions, we’ve had
to rethink the format for 2020. We’re excited about this new format and confident it will help us accomplish our annual fund raising goals!
Last year, the event raised more than $30,000.00 for the club, helping us provide strategic community grants to benefit community projects in Lee County.
