      ITALIAN FEST 2013

      If you have a craving for some great Italian food, along with a desire to help local charities,  be sure to attend the Rotary Club of Fort Myers Italian Fest 2013, presented on November 10 by The Boston Red Sox Foundation at the Alliance for the Arts.

      Italian Fest is happy to welcome a variety of restaurants that will be dishing up a great menu of Italian food at affordable prices for the benefit of the Fort Myers Rotary Club Foundation, the Harry Chapin Foodbank of Southwest Florida, the Children’s Advocacy Center, and Special Equestrians.

      “All we can say is we are so grateful to the chefs and owners of these restaurants who dish up not only great food, but do it to help benefit our community,” says Kevin Lewis, President of the Rotary Club of Fort Myers.  “Year in and year out they are here to support the Italian Fest and we hope there will be a great turnout of guests to sample great food for a great cause.”

      In addition to the delectable food, the 2013 entertainment lineup includes Alter Ego, the Cracker Blues Band, the Hot Flashz Dance Team, and Miss CC’s Creative Dancers.  Entertainment begins promptly at 11:00AM and continues through 5:00PM.  Fun family activities are plentiful and will include a coloring contest, spaghetti eating contest, bounce houses, slides, and more!

      Back by popular demand is the Marinara Contest, judged by a panel of local celebrities. A marinara sauce is a highly seasoned tomato sauce made with garlic and/or other such ingredients as onions, parsley, olives, etc., but does not contain any meat. Homemade sauces may be entered by individuals (sorry no restaurants!) until 12:30PM during Italian Fest on November 10. Preregistration is strongly suggested by completing an entry form and sending your entry fee of $10 to Rotary Club of Fort Myers, 2101 McGregor Blvd Suite 102, Fort Myers, FL 33901. Prizes are: 1st place $50.00 cash, 2nd place $25.00 cash, and 3rd place a restaurant gift certificate. Sauces must be delivered to the festival grounds on November 10 in a pint size non-returnable container. For full rules and entry forms see
