Other Events...
Italia Unita also held three events during 1998 to help sponsor the Italian festival.  On Friday, February 28, we opened the PJ Lounge for an evening of Euro-Disco, Funk, and House.

Friday, May 1, everyone dug out their platform shoes and leisure suits and enjoyed celebrating the 70's in style at our "Pre-summer Disco Dance Party."
Then, on December 11, Italia Unita hosted a "House of Groove" Christmas party.  This was the best party yet. Only one way to describe the evening..."Not enough room to fit on the dance floor."  Party goers jammed the night away as the PJ Lounge was transformed into a winter wonderland.
