The Governors' Ball

Giving and glamour come together at The Governors’ Ball. The newest members of the Foundation are introduced as the ritziest venues in the city host a night of fine cuisine, dancing and most importantly, fundraising.

THE PARTY was a great success!

On Friday, May 12, 2017, at the historic Windsor Station in Montreal, the Italian-Canadian Community Foundation’s 32nd Governors’ Ball, a.k.a. THE PARTY, took place with great success. The event was organized under the presidency and innovative vision of Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton. 

Newly branded as THE PARTY, this was the first time a Governors’ Ball was held in the spring rather than in the fall, an adaptation proposed by Mr. Imbriglio. The evening served as a celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Leonardo da Vinci Centre and to raise awareness about the Unitas initiative, as well as a symbolic rebirth for the Foundation. The goal was to bridge the gap between the older and the younger generations and to engage the new generation of leaders. This change was felt immensely, with waves of giddy excitement electrifying the sold-out crowd, floral patterns on bright display and a trendy incorporation of social media.

The FCCI also took this prestigious opportunity to introduce two New Governors: Me Richard Laramée (Partner, Kaufman Laramée), John Marcovecchio (Chief Executive Officer, Magil Contruction Canada); and four Successors: Franco De Lauri (Owner and President, Elio Pizzeria and Buffet Anna Maria), Rosario Ruggeri Jr. (Vice-President, Miracle Entretien D’Immeubles), Mark-Anthony Serri (Managing Director, Mid-Market M&A, Royal Bank of Canada), Marco Tozzi (Vice-President, Les Entreprises Laurentien Électrique).
