Hi Fabio. I just wanted to thank you, Mike and all the staff who worked on my wife's reception. Everything was super and it could not have been better. It was a result of a very sad event, but we will look back at her Celebration of Life at the ICC fondly as the years pass.

Uli M, November 24, Take Out
Dear Fabio, I wanted to say a special thank you to you and your team in all you provided for us. The celebration was very enjoyed by all, and we look forward to booking again for future gatherings. One of our guests is going to contact you regarding her 50th birthday celebration next year, looking to do similar to what we organized. I’m not sure how often the Bocce courts are available to families, but I can say it was the perfect game to bring together many ages: from kids to grandparents, so hoping we can drop in to play again from time to time during regular hours. Grazie mille!

Post in the Vancouver Sun:
RING TIME: As for broken noses, the Confratellanza Italo-Canadese and North Burnaby Boxing Club’s 10-bout Night of Fights helped fund those organization’s scholarship and boxing programs. It also benefited the East End Boys Club and Camp Miriam. Italian Cultural Centre catering director Fabio Rasotto all but knocked out 600 attendees with pork spareribs, roast beef, chicken, salmon, pesto pasta, five salads, cold cuts, cheese and Italian pastries. The Angelo Branca Sportsman of the Year award went to local boxer Tommy Boyce, who won 175 of 185 amateur and 17 of 18 pro fights. An earlier recipient, Olympian Manny Sobral, founded and heads the Burnaby club. Calling under-141-pound light welterweight Freya Orr’s split-decision win over Aanika Sehgal, “a barn burner and fight of the night,” Sobral said the latter “feels better about her body image and more confident” after shedding 60 pounds at Surrey’s Savard Boxing Gym.

Fabio, On behalf of all the IBM Reunion attendees and planning committee, we would like to thank you and your outstanding staff for making our evening truly memorable. All feedback was so positive about the food, the staff, the timing of the buffet, audio, room size, table setups, etc. We especially received numerous comments about the food...that it was the “best ever”. We can’t think of a thing we would have changed to make it better. It is always a pleasure dealing with you and your staff as everyone is always accommodating; never questioning any of our last minute changes or requests. Over the years, IBM has had numerous events at the Italian Cultural Centre and we have never been disappointed. We look forward to having many more.
