The Women's Committee of the Glendale Symphony Orchestra Assn. will not go down without a fight in the face of more local symphonies popping up — all wanting a chunk of their patrons' time and money.
On Aug. 28, these intrepid, women volunteers staged their annual "Stampede" fundraiser at the Jeffers' estate in La Cañada Flintridge. Eva Jeffers was a gracious hostess of some 70 members and guests, most in Western attire. There was a fun "three-ring circus" atmosphere among boutiques with jewelry, clothing and paintings for the women and a boutique for the men, featuring men's furs from Dicker and Dicker in Beverly Hills — always a favorite of the late Mr. Blackwell.
A social and a several course buffet of salmon and tri tip were tossed in for good measure.
Martha Feutz donated what looked like a miniature "wedding" cake. But right before dessert, Annie's Scandal! reps showed up toting their own rack of women's clothes for sale. Trying on some pretty pieces were Mary Margaret Smith, Loys Bonner and Kathy Dupree.
