The bit was reminiscent of the real Marilyn singing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” to John F. Kennedy. Since Verdugo Hills Hospital has its own “president” in LaBella, those in the know got the joke. On Friday, Women's Council members carried out their Marilyn Monroe theme with a silent auction basket of Marilyn memorabilia and a touch of the old Hollywood in the council room.
