CALLING ALL SPORTSMEN!
Welcome to the Calgary Italian Sportsmen's Dinner. Calgary's premier sportsmen's dinner where we celebrate everything Italian - food, wine, culture, camaraderie and good times, as well as honouring three high school students of Italian descent who excel in both athletics and academics each with a $5,000.00 scholarship and runners up with $1,000.00 and $500.00. The Calgary Italian Sportsmen's Dinner has a rich and storied past. We are a non-profit organization, and since our inception, have relied heavily on volunteerism. The creation of this dinner dates back to the Spring of 1963 when Luca Carloni, one of the founding fathers of our dinner, called a breakfast meeting inviting prominent individuals in the Italian community.
Join us for the opportunity to support Calgary's Italian heritage and community!
