The fundraiser to support the college’s global awareness initiatives will include a complete Greek taverna-style dinner followed by a dancing program presented by the Eastern European dance groups Radost Folk Ensemble and the Bokréta Hungarian Dance Ensemble.

The dinner will start at 5:30 p.m. Saturday,
Nov. 10, in the Peninsula College Campus Pirate Union Building and Little Theater at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

A glass of wine is included with the price of each ticket, which is $65 per person or $120 per couple.

The deadline for purchasing tickets for the event is Nov. 1.

Dinner will be served “family style” in the tradition of an authentic “Greek Taverna” atmosphere and will start off with such traditional Greek appetizers as grape leaf rolls (dolmadakia), spinach pie (spanakopeta) and Greek meatballs (keftedes).

The main course will include Greek salad with French bread, Greek lamb or a vegetarian moussaka (Greek casserole), Greek rice and roasted potatoes, and traditional Greek desserts, including sweet cake (ravani), tea cookies (koulourakia) and wedding cookies (kourabiedes).
