Twice a year Norm Levin and Bill Woloshin of Wilmette, Bud Solk of Northbrook and Art Farber of Highland Park get together with 300 friends for an informal dinner, members of the Great Vest Side Club. Members who range in age from their mid-60s to their mid-80s come from around the country. The group which began as an informal social circle in the 1990s, raises money to buy ambulances for the rescue services in Israel.
