FORT LEE, N.J. -- The Fort Lee Film Commission will celebrate Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday with a gala fundraising dinner at a popular local Italian restaurant, joined by a popular local Italian actor.

As a special feature, In Napoli Chef Sammy Grasso will recreate Sinatra’s favorite dishes.

Actor Paul Sorvino, formerly of Tenafly, will highlight the 25th anniversary of the film "Goodfellas."

According to Tom Meyers, Fort Lee's cultural affairs director, director Martin Scorsese shot parts of the movie in Fort Lee because DW Griffith filmed the first American gangster film, "The Musketeers of Pig Alley," there in 1912.

The 7 p.m. event in the Main Street restaurant's Party Room will include a 4-hour open bar, DJ music of Sinatra, and special awards presentations and celebrity guests that include Fox news correspondent Laura Ingle and the Royal Teens’ Tom Austin, as well as members of the family of William Fox, who founded Fox Studios in Fort Lee in 1915.

Tickets are $50 each and seating is limited to 100 people.
