Your participation guarantees that NIAF will continue to serve as a unified voice for the Italian American community. Our mission is dedicated to preserving and promoting the heritage and culture of Italy and Americans of Italian descent while offering educational and youth programs, including scholarships, grants, heritage travel and mentoring, to prepare individuals to assume their roles as future leaders.

Your early registration for NIAF’s October Gala will ensure your attendance at one of the premier annual events in the nation. If your plans change, you may cancel your reservation up to 10 days prior to the dinner with a full refund.

We look forward to seeing you in October.
