Disney's Michael and Jane Eisner kicked it off. A dozen important Hollywood types have signed on. So have dozens of well-known artists. A cabal of major collectors is vowing to help raise well over $1 million through art sold.

"It's a delicate balance," Roz Wyman said. "In fact, it's a double delicate balance." Whatever she wanted to call it, Wyman, along with her co-chairman Fred Hayman, pulled it off Sunday night when they kicked off next spring's first big fund-raiser for the Partnership for the Homeless.

The American Jewish Committee honored corporate exec Howard Allen on Wednesday night. The black-tie evening ended on a provocative note, however, after Episcopal Suffragan Bishop Oliver Garver Jr. walked out after questioning a speaker's implied criticism of Nobel Prize winner Bishop Desmond Tutu. Up to that point, the benefit at the Beverly Wilshire--where Allen, the chairman and CEO of Southern California Edison, received the AJC's Human Relations Award--followed the too-well-known pattern.
