Show was an awesome success! Numbers are not exact as of yet but around 3500.00 was raised for the kids art supply fund! Thanks to all the helpers, Mr Charlie Parr rocked us up pretty good, and opening act Ameraucana was great, thanks to Matt and Ryan. Also enough can't be said for the venue Amici's! Special thanks to the Caruso family for all their help and support! and to all the artists, business owners, and people who bought a ticket and came to the show! Thanks you so much!!

We want to thank you for your tremendous generosity and superb service in joining us in hosting the Emergency Responder Appreciation dinner and Courageous movie outreach. Thought the crowd was small, the event was well recieved and we have had a lot of positive feedback from those in attendance. Your partnership made this event a success!

Dear Staff at the Amici’s Event Center,
On June 24, 2012, you hosted the CD release show for the international recording artist Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons. We just wanted to say thank you for working so hard to make this special event so successful. The evening went off perfectly, and you, and your staff, made sure every detail was attended to quickly and effectively. The room worked very well in hosting 300 people for this concert, and all who attended, gave us positive feedback, as well.
Thanks again for your personal care, and hard work. The Amici Center was an ideal place for this special event, we could not have been more pleased!
Andy and Kay Chisel

"Ely Rotary Club held the first Polar Bear Dance in February 2012. The dance was an event with the Ely Winter Festival. Our event was a huge success for the Ely community due to the outstanding venue at the Amici Event Center. The facility was first rate and the Caruso's were outstanding in assistinge our efforts. It was a great fundraiser for Ely Rotary. We have already booked the Amici Event Center for the second annual Polar Bear Dance on Saturday, February 2, 2013." Ely Rotary Club
“What a great place to host an event! Hosted a 70th birthday party for my mom and everyone loved the place. I intend to book my next event at Amic's!” Deb
"Amici's is the perfect place for a dance! With plenty of room to "shake a leg" and a wonderful lighting and sound system, it made for the perfect venue for the Vermilion Community College spring dance. With the AC no one was too hot while they were groovin' on the dance floor and everyone had a great time! Amici's was also very accommodating with food and beverages too! Thanks Amici's!" Izzie
“I've been inside of Amici's and it's the best place in town to have a reception, party, etc. Kudos to Mauro and Dafne for all of the work done to get this place renovated.” Claire
