New York Gala 2021

Dear NIAF Members, Sponsors and Guests,

The National Italian American Foundation is acutely aware of the health and safety concerns surrounding the current COVID – 19 pandemic. Our organization has taken the guidance of the CDC, the NY Gala Chairman Gerard LaRocca, the counsel of our Board of Directors and partners to make the decision to postpone the annual New York Spring Gala from Tuesday, April 13, 2021 to Thursday, April 21, 2022.

Our prime concern is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, committee members, sponsors, nominees and all attendees. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience this rescheduling may have caused you. We hope that you will join us on April 21, 2022, where we will once again celebrate our treasured heritage.


Honorable Patricia de Stacy Harrison
NIAF Chairman
