*New beginnings at the League: 35 Under 35
The Board of the Italian Welfare League offers a junior membership fee for anyone under the age of 35 years old for just $35 a year. The junior membership fee, “35 under 35,” was established to attract young people who wish to become members of the League and to participate in volunteer activities. The Board believes young adult involvement is key to the growth of the League. Please help spread the word to young people at home, in school and on the job as well.
Our Autumn in New York Luncheon, held in November, is our annual fundraiser. Each successive year, the luncheon’s proceeds have grown due to the wonderful generosity of individuals and companies. We are asking your support as a sponsor and hope you will find it in your heart to contribute to this cause. Sponsorship categories ranging from $1,000 to $15,000 are available. Perhaps you or you or your company would like to advertise in the Luncheon journal, or donate an item to the live or silent auction? Our Luncheon provides many opportunities to support the League’s efforts.

Your contribution is invaluable in helping to put smiles on the faces of those who are the littlest and most vulnerable among us.
