Joni Berry has to be the most generous hostess in town. She graciously underwrote dinner for hundreds of guests as the SHARE fundraiser, and even was the official costumer for the lovely ladies who danced in the show. And what a show it was! The theme was Share Jazz, and included production numbers "Way Down Under in New Orleans", and "Let's Misbehave". Among the dazzling dancers were actress Susan Blakely, and Miriam Nelson and Gloria Franks (who are Founders of SHARE, and still kicking up their heels, 54 years later)!
President Marilyn Katleman, honored Debra Cirilov Couch, as Member of the Year, and this year's Shining Spirit Award was presented by David Schwimmer to Gail Abarbanel, founder-director of the Rape Treatment Center. Other Share Ladies in attendance included Annie Gaybis Byner (John Byner's attractive wife), my doppelganger, Joanna Carson, who shares the same chiropractor, Dr. Kerr in Santa Monica, Neile Adams-Toffel (Steve McQueen's first wife), and sexy stockbroker, September Sarno. As Governor Schwarzenegger stated, "Share is a prestigious group of women whose generosity knows no boundaries."
At their recent "Girlz in the Hood" luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Thyonne Gordon, Executive Director stated, "These women inspire young girls to embrace their potential, and direct their lives in a positive and rewarding direction Included in the festivities was a fashion show, featuring APCH participants modeling dresses donated by the Cinderella Project.
A most worthy endeavor on the Hollywood Beat.
