Our previous virtual dinner dances have been a great success. On the average 50 Rossmoor residents enjoyed the delicious meals at our last events. The delivery and pick up was well organized and went smoothly. Several individuals participated in a lively “cocktail hour” on Zoom, while a virtual disc-jockey attempted to provide background music of favorite Italian songs.

The Italian American Virtual Dinner Dance is open to all Rossmoor residents and friends. The Cocktail Hour will begin at our usual time of 5:15 PM – or since it’s virtual–whenever you like. (Note: BYOB! –you will have to provide your own liquor and wine.)

Send your reservations via email to Donna Gonzales at DonnaMGonzales@ItalianAmericanClub.Org . She can be reached at 925-891-4396. The deadline for reservations is Thursday July 23. Specify the number of meals ($32 each) and be sure to include phone and cell phone number as well as email address. In addition, let Gonzales know if participating in the music and/ or conversation. An invitation and instructions will be sent by email.
