Noon Kiwanians honor the Rev. Larry Stamper

The Burbank Noon Kiwanis Club will have its sixth annual

fund-raising gala honoring the Rev. Larry Stamper of the First United

Methodist Church at 6 p.m. May 31 at the Lakeside Golf Club.


Known to his fellow Kiwanians as Brother Love and a former Burbank

mayor, Stamper is being recognized for his years of unselfish

dedication to serving the Burbank community.

Funds derived from silent and live auctions as well as a reverse


cash giveaway will be used to support the community service programs

of the Noon Kiwanis Club, including support of the Boy Scouts and

Girl Scouts, aiding needy and impoverished Burbank families,

assisting the fine arts departments of Burbank schools and sponsoring

youth athletic teams.

For tickets and more information, call past lieutenant governor,

past president and chairwoman Marsha Jackson at 767-7756.

VNACare’s Hospice Golf Classic a success


VNACare’s 14th annual Hospice Golf Classic drew 100 golfers and

raised more than $40,000 on March 31 at the La Canada Flintridge

Country Club.

Mark Hineman, four-year Golf Classic chairman and VNACare board

member, orchestrated the event assisted by more than 30 volunteers.

Festivities included a silent auction, prime-rib dinner and

entertainment by comedian Phil Palisoul.

In the last three years, VNACare has provided care for more than


6,000 patients. The Golf Classic specifically benefits Hospice in the

Home, the division of VNACare that allows patients who are terminally

ill to remain at home with dignity, surrounded by their loved ones

and a familiar environment.

The office is based in Glendale, but services are provided in

Burbank, the foothills and Los Angeles.

Derby Day benefits developmentally disabled

Glendale Assn. and Foundation for the Retarded will host the 11th

annual fund-raiser, “Derby Day: Run for the Roses” from 11 a.m. to

2:30 p.m. May 3 in the Royal Crest Room at the Pickwick Banquet

Center in Burbank.

Derby Day is a Southern-style affair, featuring a buffet luncheon,

a silent and live auction with celebrity auctioneer Kelly Lange,

KNBC-TV Channel 4 journalist, talk show host and author. She will

autograph her books that will be available for purchase.

Some of the live auction items are a two-passenger GEM E825

electric vehicle, a one-hour jet pilot opportunity aboard a T-33

aerobatics jet, a box at the Hollywood Bowl with catered dinner and

valet parking, and a weekend in Laguna Beach with dinner and two

tickets to the Pageant of the Masters.

Guests at Derby Day will be greeted with true Southern hospitality

and will be made to feel like they have a front row seat at Churchill

Downs while watching taped races on 10-foot screens. Each guest will

have an opportunity to wager derby dollars on five races, including

the live broadcast of the Kentucky Derby.

Proceeds from Derby Day 2003 will benefit GAR Services (formerly

the Self-Aid Workshop) at the Glendale Assn. for the Retarded.
