National Organization of Italian American Women announces

The 2013 Gala Celebrating Italian Food, Wine & Opera


New York…. Donatella Arpaia, renowned restaurateur, celebrity chef, author and television personality will be honored on Monday, April 29th at the 2013 National Organization of Italian American Women (NOIAW) Gala, Celebrating Italian Food, Wine & Opera being held at The Pierre, 2 East 61st St, in New York City.

Gala proceeds will help support the development and implementation of NOIAW programs which include:  Scholarship Programs providing financial assistance to deserving young Italian American women pursuing their education; Cultural Exchange Programs providing a culturally enriching and educational experience for Italian and Italian American college students, and monthly member programs, offering cultural, social, educational and networking opportunities and events.

National Chair, Betty Santangelo, Esq. comments:  “as we celebrate our organization’s accomplishments, we are proud to announce our esteemed honoree, Donatella Arpaia. A contemporary woman leader of influence in the world of food, business and entertaining, she makes positive contributions to these industries every day and is an inspiring role model to the next generation of Italian American women.”

Donatella Arpaia is a regular on The Food Network and Today Show.
“I was a young child when my intrinsic passion for family, food and shared moments was first ignited in Naples and Puglia, birthplace of my parents.  We spent our summers there with family and friends. My rich experiences guided me in my journey into adulthood where I am deeply engaged in the world of food, business and entertaining,” says Donatella.    

NOIAW’s 2013 Gala celebrates the triumphs of women of Italian heritage. The Friend of NOIAW Award will be presented to The Honorable Natalia Quintavalle, Consul General of Italy in New York.  Other exciting additions to the Gala are two pre-Gala presentations: Winebow, a leading importer of premium Italian wines in the United States, will present Italian Women in Wine: A Guided Tasting, featuring their wines from its extensive Italian portfolio. Tenor Luciano Lamonarca, from the Puglia region of Italy, studied with Gino Lorusso Toma, and is often compared to Enrico Caruso, will present Food, Wine, and Opera, The Perfect Triad. The Master of Ceremonies will be Ornella Fado, Creator, Author and Television Hostess of Brindiamo!, broadcast on NYC LIFE channel 25.

The National Organization of Italian American Women (NOIAW) a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1980 and continues to be the premier organization for women of Italian ancestry.  Today the organization includes over 1,000 members and affiliates, and is internationally recognized for preserving Italian heritage, language and culture by promoting and supporting the educational and professional advancement of Italian American Women
