Festivities for Los Solteros and Spinsters

December 14, 1986|MARY LOU LOPER | Times Staff Writer

The bright and beautiful, as well as youthful, are in a festive spirit: Los Angeles Spinsters host their annual black-tie dinner and dance, Christmas Dansant, at the Valley Hunt Club on Friday evening. And the equally single Los Solteros (the bachelors) celebrate their 38th annual Christmas Ball to benefit Boys Republic Saturday evening in the Crystal Room of the Beverly Hills Hotel. No doubt plenty will go to both parties.

Spinsters president Melina Eversole was recently at the helm at Annandale Country Club in Pasadena to welcome new Spinsters. Membership vice president Christi Kinkle and her assistants, Avery Bayle and Davon Anderson, were showing off Lauren Christenholz, Annie Cramblit, Clunie Holt, Diane Dayton, Laurie Dryden, Angelica Kusar, Renee Lawlor, Janet Nichols, Beth Pearson, Carol Quimby, Allison Ream, Madalyn Seyer, Katherine Thompson and Blair Woodward. Miss Lawlor will represent new members on the executive board.

Los Solteros is the organization of Southern California business and professional men, who, in addition to their social interests, provide financial support for Boys Republic, the nonprofit school/community of young men between 14-18 referred by courts or family to the farm at Chino. It's there that the Della Robbia Christmas wreaths are made.

According to John Burke, ball chairman, Los Solteros has asked the Marlborough Madrigals to sing for the party. Also in attendance will be former Boys Republic students Bill Pince and John Loukota, 1986 recipients of Los Solteros scholarship and leadership awards. Assisting on the ball are Mike Fergoda, Craig Enright, John Steinlage, Paul McKelvey, Spencer Smith and Bill Scott.
