There's a lot of brotherhood, and some sisterhood, going around in the 37th annual Brotherhood Ball on Wednesday at the Century Plaza Hotel. The National Conference of Christians & Jews will honor Stanley H. Hirsch, Dolores Hope and George F. Moody.
Chief concocter of the fete is Lester Korn, chairman and chief executive office of Korn/Ferry International. As general dinner chairman, he and Carolbeth are working with Dickinson Ross, chairman of Johnson & Higgins, the Hon. Mildred L. Lillie and Ralph Briscoe, CEO of Republic Corp., on the party.
They say to expect some surprises. What we already know is that Danny Thomas will be the celebrity presenter, replacing Phyllis Diller. Les Brown and his Band of Renown will provide music for dancing. And a 66-member blue-ribbon executive dinner committee, a cross section of prominent Southern Californians, is applying the success techniques for industry to socializing.
Among them are former President Gerald R. Ford and Betty; Barbara and Charles I. Schneider, group vice president, Times Mirror Co.; Dixie and Howard Allen, chairman and CEO of Southern California Edison; Marilyn and Dave Anderson, chairman General Telephone; Marilyn and Bob McIntyre, president Southern California Gas; Speedy and Walter Beran, vice chairman, Ernst & Whinney, and Joanne and John Bland, president of Sitmar.
