More about the Venetian Ball…
The Venetian Ball is the crown jewel in Villa Charities Foundation’s annual signature fundraising events. The Venetian Ball has gained renown and become one of the must-attend fundraisers in the city. The unprecedented commitment each chair has given to Villa Charities builds upon the legacy of volunteerism and leadership established 19 years ago when Mr. Elvio Del Zotto first founded The Venetian Ball in 1994 with co-chairs Marlene Del Zotto and Senator Trevor Eyton, hosting the event at Villa Colombo’s Sala Caboto.
