Nonprofit Spotlight: Italian-American Club of Hilton Head

Mission

The club is a charitable service organization that promotes Italian heritage/culture while raising and distributing funds to local scholarships and charitable organizations in the Hilton Head and Bluffton areas.

History

Since 1990, the IACHH has been contributing proceeds from various annual events to local nonprofits. Funds are derived through several successful and long-running fundraising programs including the Italian Heritage Festival at Honey Horn, the Italian Sunday Pasta Dinner, the Bocce Tournament in the spring and the Zin Experience (“ZinFest”) Wine Gala in the fall. The programs are held at various times throughout the year in the Hilton Head and Bluffton areas. Membership is comprised of men and women who have a deep interest in helping those who are less fortunate and are in need of charitable assistance. Members share a common bond of love for Italian heritage, food, wine, charity and conversation.

How to Help

There are many ways in which to support the IACHH. Volunteer for events, sponsorship and donations. Of course you can simply join the club, eat, drink, and be merry (in other words; if you are Italian at heart, you qualify). The upcoming 10th Italian Heritage Festival (Oct. 26) is in need of all of these, as well as items for the silent auction. The club meets at noon each Thursday at Flora’s Italian Cafe in South Island Square. Call 401-524-1416 to reserve your place.
