Farrah Fawcett Foundation, Fear In The Sky Show

Our wonderful Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills was the perfect venue for a Tex-Mex Fiesta benefitting the Farrah Fawcett Foundation. The event celebrated the life and legacy of this “Special Angel”, 10 years after her death. The star-studded event included a special honor to cancer survivor and actress Marcia Cross; as well as a touching tribute to the late wife of actor Fred Willard, philanthropist and writer Mary Willard.

The event was chaired by another Angel (still beautiful Jaclyn Smith) and Dr. Lawrence Piro. Among those enjoying the gourmet Tex-Mex menu sipping merry Margaritas were such luminaries as Billy Baldwin, Pam Dawber, Melanie Griffith and of course, Ryan O’Neil. Naturally, her BFF, who produced a documentary on Farrah’s brave journey, Alana Stewart, was there to honor her friend. 

The Farrah Fawcett Foundation was created to provide funding for cutting edge cancer. With events like this – perhaps we shall eventually win the battle. 

Renowned ArtDealer and Author Molly Barnes invited a group of prestigious guests to an art show “Fear In The Sky” at the Fine Arts Gallery – West Los Angeles to a most unusual event. During the show, guests were attacked from the sky by drones, lights were lowered, and alien type music waa pumped into the room every half-hour of the 3-hour show! The event featured the work of 12 artists, including John Eden, whose art centers on the artists diverse take on flight, UFO’s and warfare. You may have the opportunity to visit this show until October 19th, free of charge at the West Los Angeles College, 9000 Overland Ave in Culver City. Remember the theme: “You can run, but you cannot hide”.
