Venue Details

The Book Presentation taking place on Monday 18th at the Italian Cultural Institute. Founded in 1961, its mission is to promote Italian languages and cultures in the United States. 

 

The Italian Cultural Institute is located in a stately building in the 1919 neo-Georgian/neo-Federal style building that faces onto Park Avenue between 68thand 69th Streets.

The mission of the event is to honor the life and successes of Giusy Versace, President of the Foundation “Disabili No Limits Onlus.” The evening will retrace the incredible and motivational personal, professional and, above all, the sportsmanship of Giusy Versace.

Giusy, who is part of the Gianni, Donatella and Santo Versace fashion designers family, embodies and transmits, to those who know her, the values of positivity, optimism and tenacity that all athletes have at their lowest common denominator: Entrepreneur, Paralympic sprinter in the T43 category, writer, performer, congresswoman, activist and… much more!

Giusy Versace’s Benefit Gala Dinner aims to raise funds, thanks to our sponsors of the event and the proceeds from table sales and donations, is intended for the Traveling Tour Initiative “Together for Sport” to be kicked off in Italy in Spring 2022. Thanks to the Disabled Association No Limits Onlus volunteers, founded to bring children and the disabled closer to Paralympic sport, through the purchase and distribution of prostheses and other necessities, the most beautiful locations in numerous Italian cities will be the protagonists of a unique sporting event.

All participants in the Italian Tour will be allowed to experience and learn more about technologies such as sports prostheses, unique wheelchair basketball chairs and many other aids that will enable EVERYONE to play sports in the spirit of inclusion and participation.

We invite you to attend Giusy Versace’s Benefit Gala Dinner. All are welcome! Join us for a unique sports event dedicated to giving back for a good cause.

New York City

The link between Italy and New York City has always been tangible. And, even more so, the love story between Italy and the NYC Marathon. A story that does not end with the race. The Podium Event represents an excellent stage where you can see the suburbs of the Metropolitan City, its characteristics and the electrifying lifestyle.

The Italian “brotherhood” is expressed in connecting with the local citizens, a visit to the most unique places it can offer, day and night, the City of blinding lights and the most unusual and familiar haunts to marathon runners of all ages.

Like EATALY DOWNTOWN, 101 LIBERTY STREET, NYCA second home.
