PEAHOF plans benefit dinner to celebrate 100th Anniversary of Lanzafame Furniture

Click here to purchase tickets

Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame is hosting an abalone benefit dinner on Saturday, April 25th at Pittsburg Elks Lodge,  200 Marina Blvd., Pittsburg, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Pittsburg’s oldest family-owned business, Lanzafame Furniture.

Tickets for the dinner are $55, $50 for PEAHOF members, and $500 for a table of 10. Pittsburg Community Theatre and the Pittsburg Community Band will also be beneficiaries of the event along with the Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame.

Discovery Homes, which is supplying the abalone for the dinner, is the event’s platinum sponsor. Other dinner sponsors include Ramar Foods, Food Source and Save Mart (18th Street, Antioch). The City of Pittsburg and Pittsburg Chamber are participating partners with PEAHOF. Both the Pittsburg Community Band and PCT will provide entertainment, with PCT presenting musical numbers from its production ‘Into the Woods,’ which runs Feb. 27-March 8 at the California Theatre in downtown Pittsburg

Camillo Lanzafame opened Lanzafame Furniture on Black Diamond in 1915, later moving to Railroad Avenue before building a new store in 1947 at its current location, 711 Railroad Ave. Camillo’s son, Delfo, later ran the store, which is now operated by his son, Chris.

The Lanzafame family has long been involved in the arts in Pittsburg. Camillo played briefly in the Pittsburg Municipal Band under the direction of PEAHOF inductee Emilio Civita. Both Delfo and Chris also played in the band.

Delfo was as widely known for his musical prowess as his furniture store. A versatile musician, he played in a number of local dance bands and was known for his collaborations on clarinet with accordionist Jim Riso. In addition, he was a violinist for the Vallejo Symphony Orchestra.

Chris is a long-time member of the Pittsburg Community Band and has played for a number of PCT musicals, several times with sons, Chris, Jeffrey and Robert. He was the drum major for the University of California marching band, leading the band on a cross-country tour prior to appearing in the U.S. Bicentennial Parade in Washington DC as the state of California’s official representative.

Tickets for the dinner are available at the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce, Lanzafame Furniture, Railroad Book Depot and Pittsburg Historical Society Museum. Tickets may also be purchased online by clicking here...
