RANCHO DISTRICT -- Beautiful horses, flamenco dancers and mariachi

will be some of the entertainment available at a fund-raiser for the

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Saturday at the Los Angeles Equestrian


"Fiesta of the Spanish Horse," featuring Spanish-bred horses, will be

held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the center, 480 Riverside Drive.

The evening will include a roping demonstration, music, food and a

silent auction, organizers said. Proceeds from the event will go to the

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma are cancers that originate in the bone

marrow and lymphatic tissues. More than 100,000 Americans are diagnosed

with the cancers, society officials said.

Box seats for the fund-raiser are $21, general admission is $11. The

price for children and seniors is $6.

For tickets and information, call 840-9066.
