Rock On Texas Hold'em

April 8, 2016

On April 8th, 2016 at Plaza Antique, the Italian-Canadian Community Foundation hosted the eagerly anticipated 9th Texas Hold’em Poker Night. Organized under the co-presidency of FCCI Governors Frank Cianci and Danny Di Schiavi, the event brought together over 230 poker aficionados and raised over $60,000, which will help support local charities and Quebec not-for-profit organizations. A portion of the proceeds will also go to the Liana’s Dream Foundation in support of Type I Diabetes research. Congratulations to the tournament grand prize winner, Mr. Ian Ronald, for winning two plane tickets from Montreal to anywhere in North America, Central America, Bermuda, Caribbean, or Mexico.

1st edition of FCCIQ Faceoff

January 24, 2016

We held our very first hockey tournament on Sunday, January 24, 2016 at Hockey Etcetera. This tournament, entitled FCCIQ Faceoff, organized under the co-presidency of FCCI Governors Peter Comito Jr. (Founder and Executive Vice-President, Operations at Selectcom Telecom) and Matteo Fiorilli (Chairman – Operating Principal at Agence Immobilière KW Dynamik), hosted 6 teams facing off to be the first to have their names engraved on the coveted FCCIQ cup.

More than 100 participants took part in this fundraising event. Families came to cheer on their teams and enjoyed free skating on the ice! Special guest Montreal Canadians alumn Yvon Lambert came to show his support as he signed autographs and gave out prizes to MVP players. Each team came on with determination and a wonderful show of camaraderie, the very spirit the Foundation looks to encourage.

In Search of Mrs. Pirandello

January 14, 2016

The FCCI organized an original theatre event which took place on Thursday, January 14th, 2016 during the Centaur Theatre’s Wildside Festival, Italian-Canadian emerging artist Michaela Di Cesare’s play had an all Italian cast who were In Search of Mrs. Pirandello.

Governors and friends joined us at the Centaur Theatre for an experience unlike any other as Di Cesare’s research unearthed a little known side of Italian history. Luigi Pirandello, one of Italy’s most treasured Sicilians, renowned innovator of 20th century theatre, and Nobel Prize winning author, had a dark secret. How did he write madness so well? That secret was Maria Antonietta Portulano, his wife.

"Quando così il mio dramma si complicò, cominciarono le mie incredibili pazzie."
- Luigi Pirandello

The play was followed by a cocktail dînatoire and a meet and greet with the cast and crew at Restaurant Bonaparte. Part of the evenings proceeds will benefit the archives of the Casa d'Italia.
