“La Bella Vita” and a Homecoming were on the Agenda at the Kick-Off for ICCC Fall Luncheon at Neiman Marcus
People enjoyed “the good life” at the Italian Cultural and Community Center Kick-Off event in the Precious Jewels Department at Neiman Marcus. It was also a homecoming of sorts, as hometown boy and legendary entertainer Steve Tyrell was there with sister Roz Pactor to welcome guests. The siblings will be the honorees at the October 17th ICCC Luncheon and Fashion Show at River Oaks Country Club, sponsored by Neiman Marcus.
Luncheon Chairs Lesha Elsenbrook and Ginger Niemann brought together an excited group to taste the Italian wines provided by TuttiLili and discuss exciting details about the October luncheon. Roz and her brother Steve (in town for a performance in Galveston) announced how honored they were to be part of the upcoming event. Roz says, “I find joy in spreading the impact of Italians’ influence on American culture. Local community leaders like Giorgio Borlenghi and Vince Kickerillo have shown how Italian style and elegance can change a city. To further my knowledge and love for Italy, I have worked with BPP Tours taking hundreds of eager travelers on trips to Italy and sharing its beauty and history.”
Also in attendance was Terrie Hogan Turner, who, along with Roz, chaired the inaugural and very successful luncheon in 2020.
ICCC’s Executive Director, Erika Myers, proudly explained the organization’s mission to advance, celebrate and preserve Italian culture and heritage. It has done this successfully for over four decades. Buona Fortuna a tutti!
