Congratulations to FIAO for Another Successful Scholarship Fundraising Gala

Broadway Stages is proud to support the Federation of Italian-American Organizations of Brooklyn (FIAO). For 36 years, FIAO has provided a gamut of services directed at improving the quality of life of individuals and families in the community, with a focus on the most vulnerable members of society – immigrants, seniors, and youth.

These services include social assistance and educational and recreational programs. They also provide scholarships to high school graduates pursuing higher education and cultural initiatives such as the Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade and exchange programs.

A state-of-the-art cultural center called Il Centro will soon be located at 8711 18th Ave., (Cristoforo Colombo Blvd). This will allow the organization to expand services and will serve as a cultural resource to Italian Americans as well as become a model to all ethnic groups in how to preserve, celebrate, and share one's own heritage in a multicultural society.

Congratulations to the scholarship winners and FIAO for an amazing year. For more information please visit
