Sporting a shocking pink wig, Jamie Lee Curtis was guest host for a Vegas style black tie event,"The Cure is in the Cards", which benefited the John Wayne Cancer Institute. The wig was bequeathed to Curtis by a young friend who died from cancer, and she wore it in her honor. Jamie is involved in many causes including Children's Aids Foundation and helps raise much needed funds for breast cancer research.
The LA social world combined with the art world when Producer Chuck and Ava Fries opened their lavish Beverly Hills manse to honor major patrons of the Center Theatre Group. Martin Massman, new President elect, was joined by outgoing President Richard Kagan, and a host of other execs who mingled with artist like Jim Morphesis, DeWain Valentine and William Tunberg. The work of 125 local artists will be displayed in the courtyard for auction bidding at the May 9th Angels Night gala at the Century Plaza Hotel, chaired by Barbara Fodor. Proceeds from this event will benefit P.L.A.Y., CTG's Educational outreach program for youth.
