Steffie Timanti's BYOP raises funds for Villa Scalabrini


Saturday 9th of June 2012 - 80 young people (19 to 35 years old) attended the Secret 16 hr Field Party promoted by Steffie & Co.

Byop (Bring Your Own Picnic & booze), the charity event for Villa Scalibrini Residential Home, raised 200 pounds which will be donated to the residential home.

Steffie Timanti has Italian origins, she told us, “I am a DJ and nothing makes me more happy then seeing people have a good time. I have spent a lot of time while growing up, going to events at the Villa so I feel it would be nice to give something back”.

Steffie would love to keep the Italian spirit alive, also because she really enjoys seeing people come together and make friends with new people just like one big family.

As Steffie told us, everything went nicely and smoothly and the picnic was blessed by enjoyable sunny weather .

80 people (About a half of them were Anglo-Italians) danced in the field and played fun games until sunset when they relocated to a secret indoor venue in East London until Sunrise. The picnic and the after party location was revealed only to ticket holders.

Even though people were encouraged to bring their own food ad booze, Pimms and beers were for sale at cheap prices and authentic Italian Wood fire pizzas were available at the venue, while music was supplied through a Funktion One Soundsystem.

The enthusiastic public danced all day and night to the music of Holly Walker Live, Antarma Live, Jason Taylor, Tough Love, Ch!co, Cooks, Steffie, Adrian Musto, Lukey, and a surprise guest.
