The Aperitif & Abruzzo Relief was a superb night with over 270 people attending the brilliant Rosso Pomodoro Italian Bar and Restaurant, in the heart of Covent Garden. For this event, we teamed up with our friends of Fabulous Events London to make sure the Italian Flair and style was expressed at its best!
This event was an opportunity for many Italians to contribute in raising funds to assist the people affected by the recent Abruzzo earthquake. In this respect, the event proved to be a success, raising nearly 3,000 pounds which were donated to the "Protezione Civile", the Italian Body which is in charge of assisting the people in the earthquake areas (click here to see a scan of the tranfer for 2,870 pounds).
A huge, huge thank you must be given to the managers of "Rosso Pomodoro" which readily and enthusiastically accepted the idea of organising a fund-raising event at one of their top-restaurants. We would like to stress that Rosso Pomodoro did not gain a single penny from the Aperitif, but they gave out generously free "stuzzichini" and drinks to help in raising the money. Kudos to Luca, Peppe and restaurant manager Simone for their prompt assistance.
And a fabulous thank you to our dear friends of Fabulous Events London : Fabrizia, Valentina and Dalila, three girls with a drive for style and class...the italian way; and particularly thank you to the exquisite Dalila Calabrese, who was in charge of the entire organisation of the event, and whom we could not praise enough for her wonderful work.
