PREVIEW: The homeless in Los Angeles will benefit Wednesday when The Shelter Partnership Inc. and LAMP stage a benefit preview of the first-time International Contemporary Art Fair at the Los Angeles Convention Center (Dec. 4-7). The fair is bringing art from more than 100 galleries in 15 countries to the West Coast, according to Brian Angel, president of ICAF/LA.
Benefit tickets are $75 and will raise funds for emergency and transitional housing for the two voluntary projects.
HOLIDAY TIME: Candlelight Ball chairman Mrs. Richard G. Newman and Juniors of the Social Service Auxiliary president Mrs. Frederick F. Fletcher are immersed in carrousel horses, plumes and snowflakes--that's all we'll tell--for their big night Dec. 13 at the Beverly Hilton. They hope to raise $100,000.
Angels Attic celebrates its third Victorian Christmas with an open house Dec. 3 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Museum of Antique Dollhouses, Miniatures and Toys housed in an 1895 Queen Anne building, will become magical to capture the holiday spirit. Even the doll houses will be decorated. Lauren's Santa's Workshop, designed and built by Bill Pickerill, will be on display. So will the gingerbread, candy and cookie houses entered in the contest sponsored by the museum. Tickets are $5, and it's a neat cause: the Brentwood Center for Educational Therapy for autistic children and young adults.
