Loading Events

On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the New York City Marathon, ISAF – the Italian American Sport Foundation presents an Inaugural Benefit Gala at the
Sheraton Hotel Times Square NYC
in the Metropolitan Ballroom

  • November 4, 2021 (WHEN)

The date of November 4, 2021, was inspired by the anniversary of the 50th edition of the NYC Marathon, which will take place on Sunday, November 7, 2021, with Covid safety standards.

The NYC Marathon is considered “The Marathon” par excellence.

With more than 50,000 participants annually representing 140 countries worldwide and millions of dollars raised for humanitarian causes over the decades, the NYC Marathon embodies one of the most impactful socio-economic global sporting events.

Italians love NYC. They love its extraordinary Marathon – a place of challenge but, above all, of human connections – and the reason why thousands of Italian runners participate every year.

  • New York City (WHERE)

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 The SHERATON HOTEL NYC TIMES SQUARE. A second home.

  • Sheraton Hotel Times Square NYC (WHERE- THE LOCATION)

New York City is the symbol of multiculturalism and ambition that merge into an extraordinary quotidian life.

Once a rundown neighborhood, Times Square has become a vital hub of commerce and culture in recent years. Culture, music, entertainment, design, tourism, and shopping are perfect protagonists.

The Sheraton Hotel Times Square NYC, “headquarters” is located here and where the election for a large part of the Italian team participates every year in the Marathon.

IASF has decided to host the Foundation’s Gala Dinner, in conjunction with the 50th edition of the 2021 Marathon, right in a symbolic place of Italianness in New York, on the eve of the competition.

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, the niece of Gianni, Donatella, and Santo, 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 Celebratory Gala 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 the Gala Dinner. All are welcome! Join us for a unique sports event dedicated to giving back for a good cause.

Following the strict compliance with the US regulations related to the Global Covid-19 Pandemic, the evening will guarantee the participation of hundreds of guests, adequately protected, who will have the opportunity to purchase a ticket or several tables with friends.
