I was very excited about the wonderful gala at the Hilton Hotel commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Glendale Humane Society. I was very eager to attend. I was equally eager to read about this amazing evening in the newspaper the next morning like I do when the News-Press covers every other event in this city. It seems like every time the "flower pot society" or the "Mongolian Dance Society" or the "Pot Warmer Society" throws a get-together, the city paper is there with bells on to write an article which appears the next day in its glorious pages.

All three stories of the 135,000-square-foot building were packed with hundreds of potential customers ready to drop some cash at the store's 10 a.m. opening. But that was after its grand-opening gala a few days before. For those willing to spend $100 a pop, hors d'oeuvres, dinner, dessert, cocktails and live entertainment were readily available. But first, champagne. Guests were served by waiters balancing glasses of the bubbly on trays.
