The Columbus Club is in an Italianate mansion and was founded by our son Alexander's classmate's grandfather, Surrogate Judge Samuel DiFalco. Membership is limited to those of Italian ancestry who have had notable accomplishments in their fields. I am not a member but for various reasons I am extended the courtesy of using their facilities.
The club benefits Italian causes, most notably the annual Columbus Day Parade. It is renowned for its food and service.
The club is formal and has a dress code.A jacket and tie is required for men and a dress for ladies.
I look forward to being with all of you.
