Fundraising dinner for Peter Pan children’s charity

On Thursday 16 May the Rome-based Peter Pan Onlus association is holding a fundraising dinner, in collaboration with Rome's Carabinieri, to raise money for a welcome centre for sick children at the Grande Casa di Peter Pan. Based in Trastevere, on Via S. Francesco di Sales, the Peter Pan charity provides support for families with children suffering from cancer.

The dinner takes place at the Salvo D'Acquisto reception rooms on Viale Tor di Quinto 119 and the occasion will be enlivened with performances by the Carabinieri choir, by Max and Giulia Maglione, and by the comedian and cabaret singer Mago Alivernini.

The evening begins with an aperitivo, followed by a buffet dinner and selection of wines from Casale del Giglio, and over the course of the night there will be various prizes raffled including a painting by Charlie Gnocchi and a weekend at an agriturismo in Umbria.

Tickets costing €50 must be reserved by 14 May and can be paid by credit card on the website or in the evening of the event, tel. 06684012, email

Last March the Peter Pan charity was saved from the threat of eviction, after the newly-elected president of the Lazio Region Nicola Zingaretti intervened to guarantee the organisation a rent-free building.
