Yule Celebration Mixes Olde and New

December 15, 1985|MARY LOU LOPER | Times Staff Writer

Carnival games, clowns, photos with Santa, boutiques for gifts and baked goods and hot dogs will be sold, for the benefit of Project Six. The organization provides group homes for youth with emotional/behavorial and social problems so severe they are unable to function in families.

UCLA College of Fine Arts Dean and Mrs. Robert H. Gray hosted a holiday reception on campus to honor the college's faculty.

We hear that the marvelous pieces of silver and china that have been given for the Caltech President's Residence, many crated away for years because of their value, will be on display and gleaming at the tea table for the festivity Mildred Goldberger and Dotty Hayman plan Monday.

Mildred is the wife of Marvin Goldberger, Caltech president; Dotty is the wife of Associates president Richard L. Hayman.

Women of the Associates and Caltech Faculty Women are invited, and more than 200 have accepted: Ernestine Avery, Joan Banning, Hannah Bradley, Virginia Braun, Carol Bressler, Tempe Brooks, Marilyn Brumder, Frances Clayton, Lucetta Clifford, Alice Coulombe, Ginny Cushman, Arrola DuBridge, Pat Earl, Judge Cynthia Holcomb Hall, Adelaide Hixon, Margaret Jagels, Betty Keatinge, Frances Larkin, Elise Mudd Marvin, Helen Tuttle, Carolyn Volk and her guest Antonia Bond, Sharon Wright and Bernice Zurbach.

Associates are those select few who pledge $20,000 over 10 years (in 1986 it moves to 15 years).

The Academy of Performing & Visual Arts met at Jean Stapleton's home in Bel-Air, and she's agreed to present a one-woman show, "The Italian Lesson," at UCLA's Schoenberg Hall on March 19 as the foundation's first fund-raising event.

It's the first time the show has been presented on the West Coast, according to Jack Plimpton, academy executive director. The event will be black-tie, $200 per person. Plimpton's anticipating 500 guests.

Norman Lear and Bill Honig will be honorary chairmen. Chairing committees will be Ruth Bloom, Larry Spellman, Alan Seigel, Linda Daube, Robert Kettelhack, Judith Larson, Barbara Weinstock, Dorothy Metcalf and Thomas Calderon.

They're billing it "The World's Largest Office Party." Concern II hosts it Tuesday at the Hyatt on Sunset Boulevard. The event concludes the group's enormous fund-raising efforts in 1985. In all, the 18-to-35-year-old volunteers have brought in nearly $400,000 since 1981.

With Hyatt Hotels nationwide hosting holiday parties simultaneously to benefit local charities, the Los Angeles fete features celebrity bartenders including Gary Owens, JoAnne Pflug, Patricia Klous, Linda Blair and Greg Brock. Additionally, there's a fashion show of holiday attire, music, dancing, videos, Santa. Admission is $5 or a nice toy for a needy child, to be distributed by the National Committee for Adoption.
