In the radiant ambiance of the Westmont Country Club, The Columbian Foundation celebrated its 81st Annual Gala, a night filled with gratitude, camaraderie, and a deep sense of community. It’s with immense appreciation that we extend our heartfelt thanks to all our members, attendees, and generous donors for their unwavering support, dedication, and tireless efforts within the vibrant Italian American community of New Jersey.
This gala was a special evening, where we not only celebrated our shared heritage but also recognized the incredible individuals who have made a significant impact on our community. Our 2023 Honorees have exemplified what it means to give back and support the Italian-American community in countless ways, and their contributions are nothing short of inspiring.
Furthermore, we take great pride in announcing the winners of the 2023 Scholarships, bright young minds who represent the future of our community. Their accomplishments and aspirations remind us of the enduring spirit of our heritage and the promising legacy that continues to thrive.
To relive the magic of this unforgettable evening, we invite you to peruse our photo gallery from the event, showcasing the smiles, laughter, and moments of connection that made the 81st Annual Gala an evening to remember.
