2020 Carmen Carrozza Scholarship Fundraiser and Memorial Award Competition - Canceled

The Carrozza Scholarship Fundraiser, September 13, 2020 will be held at Famee Furland of NA Club, College Point, NY 11356. Details on flyer below.

The Carmen Carrozza Scholarship Fund was founded in 2002 with a $2,000 donation by long-time AAA sponsor, the late Steve Stolaruk. The purpose of the fund is to grant a music scholarship to deserving young accordionists who participate in the Carmen Carrozza Scholarship Solo competition at the AAA Festival. This year, Gia Ciccone and Nathan Chapeton were recipients.

Join us for an afternoon of great food, music and dancing featuring Mario Tacca, Frank Toscano, Emilio Magnotta, Ray Oreggia and Domnic Karcic.
