Each year NOIAW recognizes three Italian American Wise Women at its Epiphany event. Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit NOIAW’s scholarships and other programs for young Italian American women – including a biannual cultural exchange trip in which Italian American college students visit Rome at no cost to them, to connect with their heritage and gain access to international professional opportunities.
This year, NOIAW will celebrate the achievements of Vittoria Pacifico-DeBenedictis, President of St. Mary’s Academy – Bay View, Lisa Silvestro Holley, Esq., Deputy Personnel Administrator for Labor Relations for the State of Rhode Island and Diana Franchitto, President and CEO of Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island.
Anne Marie D’Attelo, President of NOIAW’s Rhode Island Region, said, “On behalf of NOIAW’s entire Board of Directors, I am proud to recognize the tremendous achievements of our 2015 honorees, who inspire all Italian American women to pursue their passions and excel in all of their endeavors.”
