Jeramie Dreyfuss has spent a great deal of her life in hospitals being treated for lupus, a chronic inflammatory disease in which the body's immune system makes antibodies that attack healthy tissues and organs. Varying forms of the disease can affect the skin, causing a rash and lesions, or any body organ. Symptoms differ widely from person to person, and in some cases it can be life-threatening. There is no cure for the disease, but some forms can be treated with medication.

"Wilson may be able to veto a bill, but he can't veto us," declared Torie Osborn, executive director of the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Community Services Center, at the center's 20th anniversary ball held Saturday night at the Century Plaza.

Pete Wilson's veto of Assembly Bill 101 barring employment discrimination, an action that galvanized L.A.'s lesbian and gay community and underscored the fund-raising event.

From the town that gave you "Star Wars"--welcome to Holiday Party Wars. Without discussion, declare the winners to be Marvin and Barbara Davis. The buzz on their Friday-night extravaganza is unstoppable. Experienced party hands said the evening for 400 of their closest friends had to set the Davises back close to $500,000. How cheap can it come when you fly in Peter Duchin and his orchestra, Peter Allen performs and, to fill in the musical blanks, there were Scottish bagpipers?

It didn't take a close inspection of the 125 couples at Sunday's "Romance Rekindled" to know these were the kind of people whose eyes moisten when they watch "Casablanca"--even for the 30th time. This was the sort of crowd that hums "Red Sails in the Sunset" when squeezing melons in the vegetable aisle, that keeps the wedding album at hand, and that, upon waking, gazes at the gently snoring figure on the other side of the bed and sees a valentine.

A pretty, 40-ish woman in a bright pink fairy princess costume strides down the corridors of Childrens Hospital, unaware of the quizzical looks she's getting. Jeramie Dreyfuss' mind is on her agenda: She has to visit the young adults with cystic fibrosis, the little girl who's getting a bone marrow transplant and the boy who had the recent tracheotomy--and still make it to the big party in rehab. If there's any time left, she'll stop by the neonatal intensive care unit.

Elizabeth Glaser was more than a little anxious when she priced tickets to her first "A Time for Heroes" benefit for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation at $2,500 per family, or $1,000 per person. Many of the city's moneyed elite who drive Jaguars, send their children to private schools and vacation in Aspen found the hefty price tag too steep. "A lot of people said it was just too expensive for them," says Glaser, co-founder of the foundation, who hiked ticket prices in hopes of raising $1 million.
