Dick Van Dyke performed with the Vantastix at a benefit performance and fan art exhibit on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Malibu Playhouse.

That’s at least the experience of Ann Ryan, a Malibu resident of nearly 20 years, who, with her daughter Beth Levine, started what is now Beachy Cream Organic Ice Cream.

For all intents and purposes, D’Amore’s Pizza was born by owner and Malibu resident Joe D’Amore out of a sense of commitment and loyalty to his family.

The spark to build what would become a small pizza empire sprouting from the west side of the San Fernando Valley and expanding into Malibu and Santa Monica came to Joe D’Amore when his wife, Bonnie Major, took ill in 1986.
