The playhouses are on display at Fashion Island Newport Beach through today or via the Internet at http://www.homeaid.org.

Tickets in advance are $20 for adults and $5 for children ages 4 to 12. Tickets at the door are $25 for adults and $5 for children. Children younger than 4 are free. Information: (949) 553-9510. The auction will be in a tent next to Fashion Island's Hard Rock Cafe.
