Proceeds from the annual affair, according to Mrs. John Burgess of Sherman Oaks, will benefit the foundation scholarship program at Valley Forge for elementary and secondary teachers who develop special teaching programs in history and economics. It also will support the annual spring youth forum at Valley Forge.

For-sure acceptances have come from Sister Stella Maria Enright (school principal), Joann Pflug, Margot Barron, Kathy Ellis, Barbara Jamison, Joyce Flaherty, Kathy Terzian, Mary Lou Pinckert, Patty Duke and Katie Osterloh.

The dragon parade, a Chinese custom to clear out all old evil spirits so that the new year starts on a clean slate, is ready to go for the Loretta Wu Wong Scholarship Banquet sponsored by the Marymount High School Alumnae Assn. on Feb. 9 at Madame Wu's Garden in Santa Monica.

The annual event, now in its sixth year, celebrates the Chinese New Year--this year the Year of the Tiger--and is a tribute to the memory of Madame Wu's daughter, Loretta Wu Wong, who died of cancer and posthumously, in 1979, was named Marymount's Alumna of the Year.

The honorary chair family this year is the Harmon clan--Tom, Elyse, Kris, Kelly and Mark. Kris and Kelly are Marymount alumnae. Julie Pinckert heads the dinner committee. Tickets are $50, but Madame Wu is underwriting the entire dinner to allow more for the scholarship fund.

Before closing her Beverly Hills home to return to their home in London and then on to Monte Carlo where their yacht, the Southerly, is anchored, Ingrid Ingram, married to the international industrialist Fritz Ingram, invited a few chums for a farewell luncheon at the Bistro Garden. Among them were Mrs. Robert Stack, back from Austria; Mrs. George Schlatter, returned from skiing in Gstaad, and Mrs. Vincente Minnelli.

Valentine's Day is around the corner, and Eighth Grade Ticktockers of the National Charity League, Los Angeles chapter, honor their mothers and seventh grade Ticktockers and their mothers at a mother-daughter tea Saturday at the Brentwood home of Mrs. A. Victor Antola and her daughter Monica.

At the home of Elsie and Norman Rips, the Opera Associates opted for an operatic interlude by coloratura Candace Rogers and baritone Robin Buck, participants in the Metropolitan Auditions. Muriel Shapiro and Dorothy Shrier were co-chairmen.
