What we’re about
LIADO is an Italian American women's group dedicated to celebrating our shared Italian heritage and embracing our rich history and the endless possibilities of our future. LIADO offers monthly meetings, social events, supper clubs and family events. We also dedicate a significant amount of our time to raising funds for our annual scholarship program. That scholarship has been funded in the past by our annual San Gennaro Festa. This event routinely draws upwards of 30,000 attendees and allows us to provide multiple scholarships to college students of Italian heritage from around the United States.
If you are an Italian woman or a woman of Italian descent and enjoy the camaraderie of women who share your traditions and values, come join us! Keep traditions alive, learn more about Italy and your Italian heritage, enjoy Italian delicacies, have a lot of fun, and help LIADO continue to make a difference in the community.
