The "A new school for Cascia" charity dinner was a great success
The charity dinner held by Fiam, Biesse, and Fondazione Mediolanum Onlus was a great success: 70,000 Euros were donated to Fondazione Rava N.P.H. Italia for a reconstruction project benefiting children in areas affected by the earthquake in Central Italy.
The “A new school for Cascia” Charity Dinner was held yesterday, Thursday, 15 June, at Pesaro's enchanting Villa Miralfiore and saw the participation of numerous guests and partners who actively contributed to the fund raising, thus giving even greater value to this solidarity project.
Numerous institutions and guests addressed the assembly, beginning with the welcome by Minister Alfano, who kicked off the evening, followed by speeches by Daniele Livi (CEO of Fiam Italia), Alessandra Selci (representing the Selci family for Biesse), Sara Doris (President of Fondazione Mediolanum), Maria Vittoria Rava (President of Fondazione Francesca Rava), and Vittorio Livi (founder of Fiam Italia as well as the host for the event).
“The feeling that we are contributing to a return to 'normalcy' in areas where the earthquake changed the lives of so many families cannot be expressed in words," stated Sara Doris in her speech, "If we are caring people who, in our private lives, help and support our children, our families, our friends, and our neighbours through hard times, then we cannot remain indifferent to those who knock at our door asking for help in our professional roles either. Hence our decision, as Fondazione Mediolanum Onlus, to double the sum collected by Fiam and Biesse. Thanks to their hard work in organizing this evening and being so locally active in raising funds, we will be able to contribute 70,000 Euro to Fondazione Rava N.P.H. Italia towards the completion of the new education centre in Cascia - funds already donated to the community several days ago - and towards other reconstruction projects to benefit children in the area affected by the earthquake in Central Italy. The truth," continued Ms. Doris, "is that when you pursue your objectives with love, respecting the people you meet along the way and contributing to the realization of their objectives and dreams, you feel a great fullness within that nourishes every other aspect of your life and gives meaning to your personal journey.”
