The Young Musicians Foundation was Merv Griffin's favorite charity. He didn't just host their annual Gala at his own home (The Beverly Hilton Hotel, that is), but was involved in every aspect of the evening.. This year, unfortunately, Merv passed away a few months prior to the event; so appropriately the Gala paid tribute to their super star supporter.

The world-famous European-style cobblestone street Two Rodeo in Beverly Hills, turned pink, for Susan G .Komen Fashion for the Cure annual fashion show & gala hosted by McCormick & Schmick. Mariel Hemingway, Academy Award winning actress and author of her second book, "Healthy Living from the Inside Out" - Every Woman's Guide to Beauty, Renewed Energy and Radiant Life - was mistress of ceremonies for this event, which brought awareness of the relationship between the environment and cancer.
