Festa della Donna (International Women’s Day) is officially celebrated on March 8th each year. The Famèe Furlane of Vancouver acknowledged this important date by celebrating with a special 4 course “luncheon” a few days earlier on Sunday March 6th. The delicious meal was planned, prepared and served by a special group of men in our society. The centerpiece on each table was a beautiful bouquet of flowers which the ladies could take home. There was also a selection of Door Prizes drawn for each table.
For a surprise treat this year, we added 2 fashion shows. Seven children, ages 3 – 10 years delighted the crowd by modeling First Communion and party attire, provided by Rose’s Children’s Wear (La Rinascente). Some of our ladies joined the professional models in the second show which featured beautiful designs by Rimpy Sahota, a talented BC designer.
The Festa was enjoyed by 140 attendees!!
We look forward to next year Festa della donna, hoping to see all of you again! In the meantime, thank you for making the event such a big success!
