August 2022: Tailgate - Charlotte FC
CCI-NC joined forces with Management inSites to have a great tailgate event for the Charlotte FC vs. Toronto game on Saturday, August 27th. While the team did not win the game, the Italian Community had a great time celebrating beforehand.
We shared stories about Italy and soccer, met new and old friends, and enjoyed great food and refreshments.
Prof. Valentina Cecchi, CCI-NC President and Honorary Consul of Italy to North Carolina, was also on hand to discuss CCI-NC's goal to continue to develop relationships between Italian families and businesses and the local communities.
Congratulations to John Meyer, who as the grand prize winner of our raffle, received a jersey donated by Charlotte FC and signed by all of the players!!
A special thanks to Pizzeria Omaggio for donating the pizza! Additional food was provided by The Italian Spoon.
Thank you to everyone who came out!
