The Cerrito family of Wellington held a 60th birthday celebration for Thomas Cerrito on Saturday, Dec. 9 at the family home in Wellington.
More than 150 guests were on hand to enjoy a party with an “Italian Festival” theme, complete with booths serving different authentic Italian specialties, along with Italian musical entertainment.
The event was also a fundraiser and toy drive for the nonprofit Little Smiles. A total of 141 toys were collected, and $1,000 was raised for Little Smiles, largely through t-shirt sales, generously donated by A Affordable Printing.
Virginia Sinicki from the KVJ Show on WRMF, a supporter of Little Smiles, was also in attendance.
The Cerrito family, which owns Cerrito Electric in Wellington, has been involved with Little Smiles for many years. Thomas and Rosanne Cerrito were at the party with their four children and three grandchildren.
If you missed this special “Italian Festival” celebration, there will hopefully be another coming to Wellington in the near future. The Cerritos are working to bring an “Italian Festival” to Wellington along with Jerry Soma, who produces a similar festival at Abacoa, in March 2025.
