From the moment she walks on stage, Deana Martin takes her audience on a musical journey with her non-stop dynamic energy, honoring her legendary father Dean Martin and other great performers who shaped American music and popular culture for over four decades.

On Thursday, May 23rd, Deana will make a personal appearance at the 31st Annual National Education & Leadership Awards Gala at Gaylord National Harbor in National Harbor, Maryland. Originally called "Figli d'Italia," the Order Sons of Italy in America® was established in the Little Italy neighborhood of New York City on June 22, 1905, by Vincenzo Sellaro, M.D., and five other Italian immigrants who came to the United States during the great Italian migration (1880-1923). Their aim was to create a support system for all Italian immigrants that would assist them with becoming U.S. citizens, provide health/death benefits and educational opportunities and offer assistance with assimilation in America.
