We’ve asked vendors to be on site and set up early to work with walk in traffic throughout the day in order to promote attendance at the event. We’re encouraging those folks to share an eblast invitation to their clients this week. Though we do not expect this to be one of our normal huge events (as it is an informal occasion), it is a fun way to spend the day and to have pictures of your trade wares or art taken alongside some amazingly pristine Maseratis, Lamborghinis, and Ferraris and to meet those other club members who participate with charity benefits and other trade shows throughout the region. Email connectionsprep@gmail.com for more information. We’re also delighted to have social networking media partners credited for helping promote any event as well.

It will be a great spot to post pictures after the event, and a way to build guest attendance for future events. With so many Italianizzato events promoting various wonderful charities and so often including all ages of family, coming to our events is a great way to promote a stronger and more connected sense of community (especially by being able to share event experiences with close personal friends and family).

COME OUT, COME OUT, WHEREVER YOU ARE

It’s Spring. Now that the world is thawing out, it’s time to resume the tradition of visiting with car and motorcycle club friends again.

Thank you all for your participation, assistance growing our Italianizzato group, and for your unwavering love for all things Italian. We’re looking forward to seeing you again soon. Until then, as always, stay safe, live well, and PLAY IN TRAFFIC.
