Food drive

Volunteers with the Cultural Italian American Organization prepare pizza fritte during a food drive at the Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES campus in Aurelius in May.

The Cultural Italian American Organization of Auburn will present two drive-thru pizza fritte events in July.

The group will offer drive-thru pizza fritte for sale from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 11, at Rosalie's Cucina, 841 W. Genesee St., Skaneateles. The Rosalie's Food Truck will serve its lunch menu as well. Sales support the group's scholarship fund and contributions to nonprofits in the community.

From 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, July 25, CIAO will make pizza fritte in partnership with the CNY TomatoFest committee at the Finger Lakes Drive-In, 1064 Clark St. Road, Aurelius. Food donations for local pantries will be accepted by the committee.

The group will also present scholarships at 7 p.m. Monday, July 6, in Father Nacca Hall at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 299 Clark St., Auburn. Scholarships will be presented to Elisa Faiola of Tyburn Academy of Mary Immaculate, Caroline Netti of Auburn High School and Zachary DeCaro of Union Springs High School. Each student will receive $500. Refreshments will be served, masks must be worn and social distancing will be practiced.

CIAO was also planning to present a concert by the 42nd Infantry Division Band of the New York Army National Guard on Wednesday, July 15, in the parking lot behind Fingerlakes Mall, but the concert has been canceled because the band is no longer allowed to have public performances this summer.
