The South Orange County YWCA threw a birthday party complete with lollipops, birthday cake and balloons to a deserving 5-year-old: the YWCA's Hotel for Homeless Women. About 200 guests filled the YWCA auditorium in Santa Ana on Thursday for the hotel's Fabulous Fifth Celebration. The party included a silent auction and raised about $15,000 for the facility, built to provide temporary shelter for homeless women without children.

Racing fans are familiar with Indianapolis, Monaco and Long Beach, but Friday night it was Anaheim--specifically the Disneyland Hotel--that was the site of a grand prix that attracted racing great Mario Andretti and other celebrity drivers. This wasn't an actual race, of course, but the seventh annual Black & White Ball to benefit Olive Crest Homes & Services for Abused Children. "Every Child Is a Winner" was the theme of the grand prix dinner-dance.

Gage, a 33-year-old private investigator who owns a business in Fullerton, said he usually goes to Los Angeles for shopping, dining and entertainment.
