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

This year, we are on track to almost double the amount given to charities last year. This Spring, we gave $7,000 to local and national charities. See photos of these check presentations in our Charities 2022 Album. Our charity committee will be announcing an additional $7,000 at our November social hour and dinner, to total $14,000 budgeted for 2022!

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 scholarships were awarded in June. The 2023 applications will be available in the coming months – so be sure to check back.
