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.

That extraordinary crowd of fund-raisers who made the heavily financed Michael Dukakis campaign happen linked up with more traditional Democratic rainmakers at two weekend parties here--perfect, except for the reported "calligraphy crisis."

"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.

Incoming Los Angeles Police Chief WILLIE WILLIAMS and his wife, Evelina, have leased a condo in Hancock Park. Williams, 48, and his wife leased a three-bedroom, 2,100-square-foot unit for a year at just under $2,000 a month, said leasing agent Katie Chung in Coldwell Banker's Hancock Park office. One reason the Williamses chose the condo was because it is in an area that is centrally located and ethnically mixed, Chung said.
