Villa Charities hosted its seventh edition of the Giro cycling event this May 26, 2013. Hopes and energies were high as the occasion brimmed with VIPs, including members of the Giro 2013 committee Jim De Gasperis, honorary co-chair; Silvio Guglietti, co-chair; and Frank Ciccolini Jr., co-chair. Vaughan Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua, grand marshall for the event, also joined in the high spirits as participants pumped and pedalled their way to surpass all of the event’s fundraising goals. Nick Sanchi, last year’s Top Individual Fundraiser, continued his impressive streak by ringing in the highest donation, while Team Rosehaven, his squad, once again received Top Fundraising Team. The funds raised at this year’s event go towards Villa Charities, through which it will support the organization’s culturally sensitive programs and services.
