Giving = Smiles
The Italian Welfare League mourns the passing of Mary Valastro, who was honored as “Woman of the Year” at our 2010 Autumn in New York luncheon. Mrs. Valastro, mother of Buddy Valastro, owner of Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, NJ, was dedicated to her family. She was a gregarious and courageous woman, and the Italian Welfare League extends its heartfelt sympathy to the Valastro family.
