Buona Fortuna Activities

Get to know Buona Fortuna Lodge and learn about our activities on our regularly updated Facebook page. Photos of our past and current events can be found in our Facebook albums.

You’ll see that Buona Fortuna Lodge is very adept at finding opportunities to celebrate our Italian heritage and culture while doing good works for our Pensacola community!

Monthly Social : We meet for a monthly social hour and dinner on the second Thursday of each month. Guests are welcome! Details can be found on our Membership page.

Fundraising Events: Our fundraising events — such as Festa Italiana and our shrimp scampi booth at the Seafood Festival — allow us to grant scholarships to deserving high school seniors and to donate to several local charities annually.

Dining Out: Each month, Buona Fortuna members gather in a local Italian restaurant to enjoy good food and fellowship.

Golf and Bocce Ball Tournaments, Pizza Parties, Holiday Celebrations, and More! Buona Fortuna members seize every opportunity to celebrate with parties, dances, and picnics — all with Italian fare and flare, of course!

Charities

2021 Charities
Feeding the Gulf Coast — one of several charities supported by Buona Fortuna in 2021.

In 2021, Buona Fortuna Lodge donated $8,000 to local and national charities. See details and more photos in the Charities 2021 Album found on our Facebook page.

For 2022, we are on track to almost double that amount!

Scholarships

Escambia County High School Grads
Our mission includes awarding scholarships to deserving high school students.

“Two of our children received a scholarship from this lodge. One is now an aerospace engineer with Lockheed Martin, and the other is graduating this semester with his bachelors in accounting.

Thank you for helping them get there, Buona Fortuna Lodge!”

Each year, Buona Fortuna Lodge awards scholarships to deserving high school seniors in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The 2022 scholarship applications are available and can be downloaded and printed from the links below. The deadline for submitting applications is April 15, 2022.
