Fifteen-year-old Vadim Kovalchuk pulls back an imaginary hunter's bow, releases and shoots down an imaginary game bird.

Certainly, it was celebrity-studded. Actress Charlotte Rae and former Gov. Edmund G. (Pat) Brown dined with guests. But the real stars were Interval House "graduates"--women who expressed thanks for the chance to escape the cycle of domestic physical abuse.
