FundRaise-A-Glass 2017: A Tour of Italy

Please join The Charles River Public Internet Center for an evening of fine wine and epicurean delights. The FundRaise-A- Glass Tour of Italy 2017 is a 5 course Italian wine and food tasting dinner and silent auction that promises to please the palate and expand your knowledge of some of Italy’s finest wines. This fundraiser is a favorite of CRPIC’s friends and supporters, and we are so pleased David Maione, Owner of Vino Italiano and La Campania Restaurant, is generously hosting it again. La Campania is always a critic’s choice with Zagat, Trip Advisor, and Google, and Dave brings the same dedication and expertise to selecting the wines at Vino Italiano. Tickets are $200 per person and seating is limited, so we recommend reserving your tickets soon. Call 781.891.9559, x206 for more information.

So save the date and stay tuned for more info on menu and wines!


FundRaise-A-Glass 2017: Tour of Italy

Vino Italiano – 669 Main Street, Waltham, MA


What could possibly be more fun than a lab full of coding Cub Scouts? This spring CRPIC had a blast supporting a local troop working together on a technology badge. Local Waltham Cub Scout Pack 250 spent 4 evenings here using one of our labs and a BITSBOX package to build their own sports app.  With Candace Holman guiding the boys and helping them trouble-shoot all sorts of coding glitches, functional (and fun) apps were popping up on every screen to the sheer delight of their creators. What we especially love about experiences of this sort is kids are learning to code in a fun and entertaining way, they are learning together and teaching/experimenting in teams, and parents and members of their community are actively involved in the whole process. If you are interested in having your pack, troop, or community group try something like this, please call 781-891-9559, x 206 or email us at
