The San Gennaro Foundation is a non-profit organization, created in 2013 to honor St. Gennaro, the Patron Saint of Naples, and his commitment to help people in need. It is the goal of the Foundation to raise money through events such as the San Gennaro Festival, to help support local community efforts. This year the San Gennaro Foundation has chosen the Puget Sound Blood Center as the beneficiary of profits from this first annual event. In addition, the festival will be holding a blood drive to raise awareness and much needed donations for the Puget Sound Blood Center.
FESTIVAL HOURS: Saturday Sept 7, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., Sunday Sept 8th 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
