Mickey Pitches In to Help Raise Funds for Anaheim Museum

Mickey Mouse mingled with the 250 guests Saturday night at the opening of the new Wood Bridge Village office complex in Anaheim, where Anaheim Museum Inc. sponsored a special preview of Disneyland's 30th-anniversary photographic exhibit, "All Started by a Mouse."

In addition to the exhibit, museum supporters enjoyed hors d'ouevres from 10 local restaurants, wines from 11 wineries and an art deco jewelry display by Hurst Jewelers of Anaheim at the complex.

Anaheim Museum Inc. is dedicated to the establishment of a museum for the people of Anaheim to be housed in the old Anaheim Public Library Building. Director Mark Hall-Patton said the corporation hoped to realize more than $8,000 from the event. "We're hoping for a 'ground breaking,' as it were, in the next couple of months," Hall-Patton said.

Steve Jimenez served as benefit chairman; honorary chairs were Museum Gallery sponsors Herb and Sally Leo. In addition, there were board chairman Theresa Pawlowski and Wood Bridge Village owner-developers Don and Tom Bode, and Don Lee.
