October 8, 2013

Milwaukee, Wis., October 8, 2013….. Vollrath Associates Inc., a full-service public relations, investor relations and marketing communications agency, today announced it was named Festa Italiana’s 2013 Community Partner for the 2013 annual festival. 


“In addition to their expertise and a high level of energy, Vollrath Associates brought a sense of commitment and passion to Festa Italiana,” said Gina Spang, president of Festa Italiana. “They understood the difficulties of balancing our traditional festival with the need to introduce new ideas to further energize the event.  They succeeded in the very difficult task of broadening our reach, while maintaining the essence of the Italian culture and the roots of our festival.”


“It is truly an honor to receive the community partner award from Festa Italiana,” said Jessica Vollrath Huebner, vice president of Vollrath Associates.  “Working with the festival for the past three years has been a wonderful and rewarding experience.  We enjoy helping tell Festa’s story each year and are excited about how much the festival has evolved within the past few years.  Introducing our first mobile app was just one of the highlights from the 2013 event.  Everyone that has helped make Festa successful should enjoy a part of this recognition and know that we are very grateful.”

About Festa Italiana

Festa Italiana 2013 took place at Henry W. Maier Festival Park (Summerfest grounds) on Milwaukee’s lakefront Friday, July 19, to Sunday, July 21.  Festa Italiana is the largest Italian event of its kind in America today.  The Festival began in 1978 for the purpose of reuniting an Italian community torn apart by urban renewal projects and was the first ethnic festival in Milwaukee. Today, several ethic festivals are celebrated on Milwaukee’s lakefront and the city is now widely known as the City of Festivals.  Through the dedication of more than 2,000 volunteers, the annual Festa Italiana has become a favorite family event for Milwaukee and surrounding areas.
