First Off . . .

December 25, 1987| Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press

Luminaries such Cher, Whoopi Goldberg and Valerie Harper joined homeless advocate Mitch Snyder and other celebrities in Washington on Thursday to dish up a traditional Christmas dinner to homeless people. "The guests were excited because they're feeling special, and they're feeling special because they're feeling human," said Snyder, whose Community for Creative Non-Violence organized the $100,000 charity event. Also participating in the event were: radio personality Casey Kasem, comedian-turned-social activist Dick Gregory, Motion Picture Association of America President Jack Valenti and actor Dennis Quaid. Most of the entertainers coming from Los Angeles were flown in by a $15 million, 14-seat corporate jet donated by Meshulam Riklis, multimillionaire industrialist and husband of singer Pia Zadora.
