Mary Rosa Giglitto Bronze Bust Project

Mary Rosa Giglitto
Bronze Bust Project
After discussing the most appropriate way to honor Mary Rosa Giglitto for her years of dedication to the Cabrillo Festival and to the community at large, the casting of a bronze bust seemed the most appropriate.
The target date for completion is the 2011 Cabrillo Festival. It will be unveiled during the Cabrillo Banquet and be on display during the remainder of the Cabrillo Festival.
The bust will be then be displayed, on a permanent basis, at the Portuguese Historical Center for public appreciation.
We ask the community’s support in paying this most deserved homage to a woman who gave her all to raising to the highest levels of recognition the Portuguese Community in San Diego, and not only.
Please send your tax-deductible contribution to:

Any funds collected over the budget will go to a Mary Rosa Giglitto Scholarship.
