If ravioli, sausage and cannoli sound good to you, then you’re in luck, the Frontenac Education Foundation’s annual Festa Italiana is set for Saturday. Festa has been a tradition for the Frontenac community since 1999. The event was created to relieve some of the costs of college tuition and textbooks. 

At first could only offer $50 scholarships per semester. Now students receive $150 and each year the foundation is able to provide approximately 225 scholarships with a total of approximately $33,000 a year. Festa raised a little over $70,000 through food sample tickets, auction and wine tasting and craft beer from Eagle Beverage last year.
