'Controlled Appearances' on Hart's Campaign Schedule

February 04, 1987|Marylouise Oates

PEOPLE WILL TALK--In D.C., people are talking about former Reagan political director Ed Rollins and Mondale veteran, D.C. attorney John Reilly, going into business together. That sounds like a male version of the successful firm that joined the GOP's Nancy Reynolds with the Democrats' Anne Wexler. . . . Former Carter White House aide Midge Costanza will reportedly link up with Shirley MacLaine to coordinate the actress-author's spirituality seminars across the United States. . . . Local Democrats heard from at least one major Gary Hart staffer that Hart's campaign would feature "controlled appearances." That translates as two or three major events a day, rather than the usual stuffed schedule.

BRAVO, BRAVO--The Music Center presented its fifth annual Bravo Awards Monday night, honoring two teachers for their outstanding work in arts education. Cited: Boyd Cook, from Gardena High School, who teaches chemistry and physics, and also a course called "Humanities." The second winner, Joseph Gatto, chairs the visual arts department for the L.A. High School for the Arts. Garry Marshall did the emceeing, along with Mary Ann Mobley and Gary Collins. The Bravo Awards are underwritten by the Jeffery Melamed Memorial Fund, founded by Joan and Marco Weiss.

KUDOS--Bruce Corwin and Anne Levin Katzky get honored at the annual Variety Sweetheart Luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel today. During their terms as presidents of Variety Club of Southern California, the organization has raised more than $4 million for children's charities. Monty Hall will emcee--and on the dais will be Mayor Tom Bradley, Warner Brothers Chairman Bob Daly and lots of celebs.

UPCOMING--Yale President Benno C. Schmidt Jr. speaks Monday at the Music Center at a dinner sponsored by the Yale Club of Southern California.

CELEBRATE FASHION--Celebrate California Fashion Friday when the California Fashion Industry Friends of AIDS Project Los Angeles produces a really stellar event at the Century Plaza. Here's a chance to see a showing by Adrian, the legendary California couturier and MGM costume designer. George Rudges, of Saint Germain, is the event's chair--and the committees look like a phone directory of Who's Who in Fashion. An extra way to raise money at the black-tie event--a silent auction of original sweat shirts created by leading designers.

ARTSY--More than 200 art fans--and friends of Loyola Marymount--turned out for the $200-a-plate "Evening With David Hockney" last week. Organized by Joan Quinn and Suzanne Marx, the fund raising at the Burns Fine Arts Center benefited the university's Laband Art Gallery. Hockney was on hand--kicking off his exhibit there, "Faces," his first-ever portrait show.
