What We Do

As the preeminent Italian cultural club in San Francisco, Il Cenacolo provides an opportunity for community service and camaraderie to its members. We support various opera and Italian language organizations throughout the Bay Area and annually awards scholarships and stipends.

Additionally, there are special member events. Every September we gather for our annual Opera Outing, which is an old fashioned Italian lunch in the country.  We invite the stars of the San Francisco Opera to come as our guests, and everyone has a grand time with great food, wine and conversation.  The Marin County Italian Film Festival is put on by one of our members and we take part in that celebration as well. December brings our annual Person of the Year award celebration, combined with our Christmas party.

Monthly bulletins to members keep everyone posted on all upcoming events and programs.
