The Lido Civic Club of Washington D.C. generously donated $5,000 recently to benefit Paul VI's Options athletics program.
On August 17, 2023, the Lido Civic Club presented the contribution to Glenn Farello, PVI’s Assistant Director of Athletics, and Gary Underhill, Health and Physical Education Teacher and PVI Options Athletics Coach.
The PVI Options program provides students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities access to an individualized inclusive, student-centered Catholic education. The Options Athletics program includes soccer, basketball and track.
The Lido Civic Club provides scholarships to students with Italian ancestry and in need of financial support. Applications will open in January 2024 at www.lidoclub.org
. Since 2004, the Lido Civic Club has provided over 1 million dollars in financial assistance to Italian/American college students who live in the Washington DC metro area.
