After a two-year pandemic interruption, The Dante Society of Westerly, RI will resume our tradition of hosting the annual Anna Turrisi Food Demonstration. The event will feature the culinary students from the Westerly High School demonstrating their cooking and serving skills. With her family in attendance to represent her, this year’s event will be to honor our past Food Demonstration Chair, Mrs. Angie Smith, who recently passed away.

The focus of this event is to raise initial scholarship funds for the Angie Smith Culinary Scholarship to benefit the students at the Westerly High School.
