Mingle with the renowned film director and winemaker, Francis Ford Coppola, on April 19 when he co-hosts an evening to benefit North Beach Citizens, an organization he founded to help the homeless in the neighborhood.
For the past eight years, Coppola has hosted guests in the basement of Sts. Peter and Paul Church in North Beach for a huge family-style dinner, served at long tables, and accompanied by wines by — of course — Francis Ford Coppola Presents.
This year, Rose Pistola restaurant will do the honors — cooking the festive dinner.
As in years past, look for lively entertainment throughout the night, such as poetry readings, and dancing.
Additionally, a Smart Car Passion Coupe (valued at more than $20,000) will be raffled off. Only 500 raffle tickets will be sold at $100 each.
Tickets for the dinner event are $125 for adults, and $50 for children under age 13. For tickets or more information, call (415) 772-0918.
