CO-PATRONS OF HONOUR

Domenico D’Alesio & Gino Berretta

CO-CHAIRS

Christine Pickrell & Robert Fargnoli

On Thursday, May 23rd, 2013, over 300 people attended the 10th annual Under the Tuscan Sun fundraiser at one of Montreal’s trendiest halls the WAVE. The 10th edition honoured the cofounders of the event Mr. Gino Berretta & Mr. Domenico D’Alesio, generous sponsors of the red wine for the last 10 years!

Co-chaired by the dynamic duo Christine Pickrell (Westmount Florist) and Robert Fargnoli (Tony Shoes), the event raised close to $150,000 which will enable the QEHC, a not-for-profit organization, to continue providing state-of-the-art primary healthcare to the community.

Guests were treated to a delicious array of traditional Italian cuisine from Fusion catering. A superb selection of wines sponsored by Berretta Wines, LCC Wines & Spirits & the SAQ were enjoyed by all. The well-known Montreal band, The Fundamentals, created a fun and festive atmosphere, playing everyone’s favourite tunes that guests couldn’t help dancing to! Guests also enjoyed the beautifully recreated Tuscan vineyard by none other than Westmount’s Florist creative co-chair Christine Pickrell.
