Caffe Roberto is at 11800 Jefferson Blvd., Del Rey. Admission is $35, which may be tax deductible, and includes a buffet dinner, one drink ticket, door prizes, entertainment and dancing until midnight. Reservations are required.
“Education is the foundation of democracy and freedom in every civilized nation in the world,” Vakshoury said. “I am looking forward to making a difference in the lives of people, even if it may be the life of only one person.”
