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.

Sandi T, April 16, 2018 Celebration of Life in the Grand Ballroom
Your generosity has made a huge impact on our services and in the lives
of the young people we serve. In our neighbourhood food insecurity is a
serious issue for many families and, over the years, Britannia students
have come to rely on the hot meals served at Homework Club. As a small non-profit, your
donation has significantly impacted our bottom line as well. More than
30% of our yearly budget is spent on food, and with your assistance, we
have been able to direct much needed funding in other directions.
Honestly, I cannot say enough about the ICC and what your generosity has
meant this year.
Kim L – Ongoing Food Donations to the Britannia Homework Club
Hi Fabio, I want to begin by saying Thank You to everyone at ICC. Everything ran smoothly and our guests were very happy. The meal was delicious and all the staff were pleasant.

Lina S, April 13, 2018 Stella Comita Society in the Grand Ballroom
Good morning Kelsey, I just wanted to reach out to you and your team and thank you all so much from the order we picked up yesterday. The food was excellent.

We will definitely keep you in mind for any future catering and share our experience with anybody looking for catering.
Mircella B, April 15, 2018 Take Out
