Approximately $4 million has been contributed to numerous primarily St. Louis-based children’s charities since the initial Italian Open in 1974 raised about $4000. Today between 30-40 local
children’s charities (including St. Ambrose School) benefit from the Italian Open which now distributes approximately $150,000 yearly. The Italian Open two-day event includes a dinner auction at which we honor one or two deserving citizens from our area each year.
Two of this year’s honorees are Guy & George Giudici.
