Whether it’s helping kids with much-needed school supplies, providing gift cards for local families in need, providing donations to the Morris County Battered Women’s Shelter, local churches, food pantries, the Parsippany Day Care Center, or just helping whenever to help is needed, Morris County Sons of Italy – Lodge 2561 is always willing to give a hand. Almost every penny raised through the organizations’ charitable fundraising events is funneled back into such community needs.

The organization’s latest fundraising event was held on Sunday, June 4, at the Gourmet Café in Parsippany. The Sons of Italy and Chef Matthew Pierone, owner of the popular Italian restaurant and an active member, coordinated the sell-out event. Chef Matt (as he is affectionately known) is always willing to lend a hand in helping local causes.

The eatery was packed; almost 50 attendees enjoyed many of the restaurant’s most popular dishes.

The eatery was packed, as almost 50 attendees enjoyed many of the restaurant’s most popular dishes while sharing great camaraderie with fellow members, supporters, friends, and local dignitaries. In attendance were Parsippany-Troy Hills Mayor James Barberio, Council Members Frank Neglia, and Paul Carifi Jr., all current members. Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi, and family, were also on hand to join in the festivities.

Following the feast, Lodge President Robert Adamo and the Executive Board presented Chef Matt with a Custom Boxed Magnum of Wine in recognition of his generosity and hospitality that evening and the ongoing charity events he regularly holds at his restaurant.

The fundraiser proved a memorable success and may become an annual event. Let’s hope so!
