Danette Goulet COSTA MESA -- A fund-raiser this month for Brianna Olympius, a 9-year-old Costa Mesa girl who underwent surgery last month to remove a benign brain tumor, brought in $44,000 to help pay her medical bills.

Young Chang Nanci Kapp used to breeze through the doors of Fidelity Federal Bank in Newport Beach and make an impression while doing something as mundane as depositing a check. When she looked fancy, her tellers would ask where she was coming from. The answer usually involved some sort of fund-raiser and one of her many causes. For about eight years, the bank staff got to learn that Kapp was a sprightly person -- someone who was active with arts organizations, someone who dated, someone who roller-bladed, golfed, paddled her kayak and danced all in the same weekend.

Jennifer Kho COSTA MESA -- Waving picket signs, wearing their warm-up suits and screaming at passing cars in front of a Mobil gas station Monday morning, the Estancia High School girls basketball team protested the loss of their biggest fund-raiser of the year. "Honk if you support us!" they yelled. "Don't buy your gas here because Mobil doesn't support us. Go to Texaco or something." The girls said that the gas station wouldn't let them have a fireworks stand this year in their usual spot behind the station on an adjacent property.

So the other day, I'm sitting in the newsroom with one of our newer editors, discussing something important I'm sure, when I noticed he was glancing up at the TV that sits in the corner of our newsroom. The TV was tuned to the Orange County Newschannel, proving of course, to those readers who thought we just watched soap operas or Laker games all day, that we stay on top of the news. Anyway, the editor mentions that the two people who are taking part in some talk-show type discussion on the TV sure look to him like a couple of George W. and Laura Bush impersonators.

Lolita Harper Blazing heat, flip-flops and bathing suits don't usually go well with ghosts, ghouls and goblins, but in the minds of leaders from Newport Coast Cares, summer is the perfect time to start planning for Halloween.

Christine Carrillo Orange Coast College's recent fund-raising efforts that have allowed the college to return 21 classes to the 2003-04 schedule have also turned the college into an example of efficiency for other community colleges in the state. The California Community Colleges chancellor's office will recognize OCC's annual boat auction and marine gear sale during a Board of Governors meeting later this month. One of my duties is to "let the board know what's going on at colleges throughout the state, and I thought this was a really interesting way for a college to fight back against the budget crisis," said Kirsten Macintyre, the public information officer for the chancellor's office.

Playing a round of golf with two football players quickly proved that a golf ball can be hit much further than my thin frame is able to produce. When Newport Coast's R.J. Kros and San Diego's Dokie Williams swung their drivers, a "whoosh" soon followed and the ball would zip off the club as if it had just been launched with rocket fuel behind it. Watching these soaring drives provided the most entertainment during the Orange County Chapter of Childhelp USA's 21st annual Celebrity Golf Classic -- hosted by former Rams all-pro center Rich Saul -- held May 22 at Pelican Hill Golf Club in Newport Coast.

A 1959 Cadillac convertible, white with red leather seats, top down, greeted patrons of the 2002 Candlelight Concert at the front door of the Orange County Performing Arts Center. It was nothing less than a kitsch interpretation of Santa's sleigh. Many in the arriving crush of some 500 major donors to the Center posed for a photograph in front of the sleigh before entering for a dazzling evening. Candlelight Concert, now 29 years running, is a tradition started by founding patron Tom Moon in a empty Kresge store in a mall, where patrons were served a spaghetti dinner.
