Review for Festa Italiana Association Inc, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Portland Italian Festa is an important part of the city's cultural life as it helps to preserve Italian culture. Hundreds of volunteers work to put together an important summer event for the city. There is no charge for admission to the event and it provides great entertainment for thousands of citizens and its visitors.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The feeling of everyone contributing towards a common goal.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

hard working and friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

contribute more towards assisting other charities

Ways to make it better...

had more volunteers

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

cost of providing the Festa: city rent, insurance, contractors.... the cost is high and the receipts from sales and vendors does prevents getting better entertainment, etc....for an event that is free to the public

One thing I'd also say is that...

I enjoy working with the organization. The people are friendly and hardworking
