The Sons and Daughters of Italy Lodge 2436 recently selected Giorgio Sebastiani Hazzis as the organization’s president.

Hazzis was the lodge’s vice president for a year before his nomination.

The Sons and Daughters of Italy is a fraternal organization dedicated to the preservation of the Italian heritage, language and culture in honor of our ancestors. The group supports those in need through its charitable and scholarship programs.

Dr. Vincenzo Sellaro is the founder of the Order of the Sons of Italy in America (OSIA), the largest Italian American organization in the United States.

Orginally from New York, Hazzis moved to Key West four years ago from Virginia Beach with his wife, Sharon.
