A Christmas Eve meal will welcome new immigrants to the country by inviting them to discover all the trimmings of a traditional Canadian Christmas.
The seventh annual Christmas Eve Feast is being hosted by the Sons of Italy, West End BIZ, X-Cues Billiards & Cafe and Sorrento’s. The event provides a warm festive atmosphere, traditional holiday meal and gifts for over 375 attendees.
“Many Italian families were once the newcomers to the West End and the event is one way of honouring their Canadian journey and giving back to the community that welcomed them,” said Sons of Italy organizers Reno Augellone and John Giavedoni.
The meal will begin on Tuesday, December 24 at 11:30 a.m. at X-Cues, 551 Sargent Avenue.
Most attendees are referred to the event by service agencies and organizations.
