On a framed poster board in her bedroom at the Olive Crest home for abused children, 15-year-old Laura has a collage of photos filled with the smiling faces of friends, pet animals and familiar places. Conspicuously absent are any images of adults, particularly the father who abused her from an early age and the mother who kept silent about it. The courts took her away from her parents, and the Orange County social services system put her in a private group home with five other teen-age girls.

Proving that country-western attire doesn't have to mean blue jeans and plaid shirts, party-goers donned fancy black-tie duds for "Sequins, Spurs & Smiles," the eighth annual Olive Crest Black & White Ball. About 450 guests, many wearing cowboy hats and tuxedos, attended the gala at the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim on Saturday. The $250-per-person benefit was expected to net $140,000 for the Olive Crest Abused Children's Foundation, which provides homes and services for abused children.

And she walked with a cane. "I just had foot surgery," she confided.
