Charitable Fun

A Pair to Admire

A fundraiser for breast cancer treatment is asking for donations of creativity as well as money.

For a $200 entry fee, donors are invited to decorate a bra in creative and/or sentimental ways. The bras will be sold in a silent auction benefitting breast cancer diagnosis and treatment for low-income Harbor Area women.

The entry deadline is Feb. 15 and the auction is Feb. 27.

The fundraiser is sponsored by Soroptimist International of Los Angeles Harbor. For more information, entry forms or event tickets, contact Marta Valladolid at (310) 832-5482 or

Merlot for Mammals

Tastings will be held at 1, 2:30 and 4 p.m. for a $15 donation.

Space is limited and reservations are advised. To sign up, visit The Corner Store at 1118 W 37th St. or call Jill Romano at (310) 548-5677.
