Dear Friend and Supporter, 

          The Purple Aster Charity Ball, the primary fundraiser for the Sons of Italy New Jersey Foundation, will be held at the Marion, 1901 Route 130 South, Cinnaminson NJ 08077 on Saturday, April 25th, 2020.

          Our gala affair is held every two years and honors outstanding Italian-Americans for their contributions to the community, charity, and for being a positive image of Italians in America.  This year’s fundraiser will begin with a cocktail hour at 6:00pm, followed by dinner and dancing.  The donation for our Purple Aster Charity Ball will be $200/person, payable in advance.

         This year we are proud to honor three outstanding Italian-Americans with our Golden Lion Award:  Daniel Lombardo, President and CEO of Volunteers of America Delaware Valley, Inc, William Schievella, Director of the Police Studies Institute at the College of St. Elizabeth and Founder and President of the Italian American Police Society of New Jersey and Jack Tarditi, Managing Director and Business Development Executive at Connor, Strong, & Buckelew.

         We invite you to help us honor our distinguished recipients, by attending this event, by placing an Ad in the Dinner Journal, or by supporting one of our Sponsorship opportunities.  The Journal reaches many influential corporate, political, cultural, and academic leaders.  Ads are available for both individuals and businesses.  Your support in this celebration of our distinguished honorees can make a significant difference to those who benefit from the Foundation’s programs.

          All proceeds from this event will support our philanthropic activities including many well deserving charities, such as the Arthritis Foundation, as well as our Scholarship Program.  We sincerely hope that you will join us for this great evening.

          We look forward to seeing you on April 25th and thank you for your generous support in making this our most successful Purple Aster Charity Ball yet.


         James J. Daloisio, Esq – Chairman SOI NJ Foundation & Dominick J. Burzichelli – President SOI NJ Foundation
