Bathroom Renovation Information


The Club once again hosted the Area 12 / Special Olympics Bocce Tournament on Saturday, May 7th.   Over 70 contestants from the northeast Ohio area participated in the games, as buses from Lorain Murray Ridge, Lake Deepwood, and Cleveland Hts./University Hts. facilities brought the players to the Club around 8:30 a.m. on a cold, rainy day.  Fortunately, our covered bocce courts and pavilion allowed the games to proceed.

Over 20 Club volunteers helped to keep the games run smoothly, serving as both coaches and referees, while several members helped to prepare and serve food to the players and their families and supporters.  Special thanks to club member Harvey Contenza for helping to organize the event.

Also, congratulations to Melissa Coad, this year’s winner of the Pat Bristo/Henry Liberatore Sportsmanship Award, named after the two club members who were instrumental in bringing this event to the Wickliffe Italian-American Club.


“Breaking Balls” Documentary to hit Cleveland Film Festival

We’re all very excited that John Vourlis’ documentary called “Breaking Balls” – which centers around our club and the Cleveland Challenge Cup of Bocce tournament, is going to be screened at the upcoming Cleveland International Film Festival.   The Club would like to buy a block of tickets and take a “field trip” downtown to take in the debut screening of the film.  We’re looking at Monday, April 3rd for the 7:35 p.m. showing.
We would like to know who is interested in going so we can get a head count to purchase tickets.  Spouse, guests, kids etc. are all welcome to attend.  The Club would buy the tickets and then you would purchase your tickets from us.  Ticket prices are normally $16 (for non CIFF members) and $14 for seniors (65 and over) and students.  If we order 10 or more tickets, we’ll get a discount of $2 per ticket.  We may also look at chartering a bus so we can all go down together and avoid having to pay for parking etc.
If you are interested in going, please contact Larry Koval at wickliffeitalianamericanclub@gmail.com so we don’t get shut out.  I’m sure tickets will go fast!  We will be ordering tickets no later than Friday.   Let me know:
1) How many tickets you want
2) If any are for seniors or students
3) If you would like to ride down with the group
