The association,under the leadership of its president Otello Ongaro aswell as the organizing committee used their special milestoneevent as an opportunity to raise funds for the Villa LeonardoGambin Charity’s long term care residence. Not only did theclub raise funds but it also donated a forty inch LCD television.The television was placed in the sixth floor activity room for the enjoyment of residents and their guests.The Gruppo Età d’Oro is another organization with an extensive history of community outreach andraising funds for charitable causes including the Villa Leonardo Gambin Charity.
