The bash was held at the Beverly Hills Mid-Century home of Eugenio Lopez Alonso, the international art patron who recently sponsored the opening of the new Museo Jumex contemporary art museum in Mexico City.

The Los Angeles Korean community has rallied to help the owner of a Canoga Park grocery store destroyed Sunday by a shopping center fire. Destruction of the tiny Asia Market is the third recent personal tragedy for store owner Sun Yeoul Lee, friends said.
