The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens in San Marino is different from most institutions. It boasts expansive lawns, arbors, gardens galore--hundreds of charming locations for interesting parties. Last year's summer ball was bathed in golden light as guests danced around the tombs of Arabella and Henry Huntington. This year's ball, on the last night of summer with a big moon and twinkly stars, focused on the Australian gardens. Groves of eucalyptus formed a stately circle.

And there were families by the droves. William and Onnalee Doheny and Will and Libby Doheny organized 48 seats for a triple-generation celebration. Stephen and Louise Griffith flew in their offspring from New York because they hadn't been able to get "Phantom of the Opera" tickets there.
