The following organizations had signed on to participate at the time of publication: the Associazione Regionale Siciliani in America, Calabresi in America Organization, Associazione Regionale Pugliesi in America/San Nicola, Chicago West Suburban UNICO, Chicagoland Italian American Charitable Organization, Columbian Club of Chicago, Italian American Executives of Transportation, Italian American Veterans Museum, Joint Civic Committee of Italian Americans, Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America Grand Lodge Illinois and Wisconsin, Prospect High School Club Cavalieri, Società San Francesco di Paola, Società SS. Crocifisso & San Giovanni Bosco Di Ciminna (Chicago) and Sons and Daughters of Italy in America.
A Presepio Vivente, or Living Nativity, will be performed by ARPA/San Nicola during the Casa’s noon Mass. Festivities also will feature a strolling zampognaro and Befana, a horse-drawn carriage, Christmas carols by the Casa Italia Choir, a special performance by the students from the Casa’s Italian class, and a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus with photos and gifts for children.
Holiday treats served throughout the afternoon will include hot chocolate, espresso, eggnog, roasted chestnuts, fried dough and traditional Italian cookies. Other food will be available for purchase.
Organizations, businesses, and families are invited to sponsor and trim the Christmas tree that will adorn the Casa grounds throughout the holiday season.
