The Benefactors’ Reception was held on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 in the historic Esplanade Building on Cabrini High School’s Campus. At the event, Jack Truxillo, President of Cabrini High School, thanked the attendees for their loyalty and generosity to Cabrini High School.
After thanking the benefactors, Mr. Truxillo also recognized two special guests. A plaque placed in the Courtyard in memory of Italia Pizzati Bacuzzi Dearing, the great-niece of Captain Salvadore Pizzati, was unveiled to Mrs. Dearing’s daughter, Captain Pizzati’s great-great niece, Melisa Barnett, who was in attendance. Additionally, in recognition of her 21 years of service to Cabrini High School and her family’s generosity, the extension room of the St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Exhibit was named and dedicated in honor of Sr. Alice Zanon, MSC and the Zanon family.
