 Mama Mia! – An Evening in Italy

Italian Dinner/Networking Event
Tuesday, October 3, 6:30-10 p.m.

Experience an evening in Italy!  A gondola will transport you from the Omni Mandalay along the canal to an atmosphere of European elegance at the enchanting Venetian Terrace.  There you will enjoy wine tasting, while you create your own specialty pizza, tossing your own dough in the air with instructions from a professional pizza chef. You will also be treated to a full range of Italian cuisine from salad to pastas and tiramisu.

At evening’s end, one lucky event attendee will win a trip for two to Italy!

Make your reservations now, as seating is limited and available on a first registered/first served basis. You’ll be humming Ol Sole Mio all the way home!

An $85 per person fee covers gondola transportation, food, entertainment, beverages and collegamento (connecting) with friends. Reserve your place at the private Evening in Italy event on the registration page. Questions: Contact Terry Young, 214-703-7841 or email
