Davio’s does it right – while celebrating 30 years
Owner of Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, Steve DiFillippo, is well known for and credits his success to his mantra: “Be good to people and people will be good to you,” so it’s no surprise that he is actively involved in many charitable organizations. He is carrying that attitude forward this year, more than ever, in celebration of Davio’s 30 successful years in business – all while offering an unforgettable experience to his guests!
Let’s face it – with the arrival of fall comes a plethora of fundraisers, galas and benefits, and without ongoing effort to keep them lively, they can become a bit stale. When faced with this challenge, we suggest putting the fun back in your fundraiser – case in point – Davio’s. If you’re looking for new ideas on how to raise money for a cause, Davio’s does it by selling products and organizing fun events, and they put some serious heart behind them. Here’s a look at some of their charitable efforts this month:
Davio’s 30th Anniversary Celebration: October 21st
100% of proceeds benefitting The Greater Boston Food Bank
Steve DiFillippo is celebrating his 30 years of success, and it’s no surprise that he chose to donate 100% of the proceeds to a great, food- related cause: The Greater Boston Food Bank. The event will be held on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. DiFillippo is inviting Davio’s family and friends to celebrate 30 successful years in Boston with plenty of food, drinks and dancing all while giving back! Davio’s Boston will shut its doors for one-night-only in celebration. The evening will be an unforgettable, star-studded event with live music by French Lick with WYC Grousbeck, on the drums, the co-owner of the Boston Celtics!
