Institutional Advancement Surprises Alumnus

Posted October 8th, 2013


On Sunday, October 6, Mr. David Zappariello, ’83, Director of Alumni and External Affairs, stopped in to surprise 1979 alumnus, Tony Ciro.

“I was in Lancaster, PA, with my family this past weekend and stopped in to introduce myself to Tony,” said Mr. Zappariello. “Tony owns Ciro’s Italian Bistro, and is a loyal donor to our annual gift appeal. He was a true Christian gentleman and welcomed us with open arms. I brought Tony’s yearbook and we reminisced about his time in Richland and his continued fondness for St. Augustine Prep.”

Ciro’s Italian Bistro is located at 605 Richmond Drive, Lancaster, PA. The restaurant features classic Italian dishes, fire-roasted pizza, panini, and home-made cannoli and gelato.
