PAGE FOUR THE JEWISH TRANSCRIPT, SEATTLE NOVEMBER 17, 1933 Social and Personal Events of the Week SARA MICHELSON Social Editor PRospect 4198 Spirit Of Giving Is Strong With Seattle Jewry Hospitality and intelligent direc- tion of entertainment is no doubt responsible for the phenomenal suc- cess of the two City-Wide Welfare parties held during the week, which netted the Welfare Society Health Fund the oppulent sum of nearly eight hundred dollars! On Saturday at the beautiful Spanish Stucco home of Mr. and Mrs. Max Silver on Hamlin Avenue, a hundred and forty guests enjoyed a most delightful evening. And as the guests played their favorite games, chatted, partook of a delectable midnight supper, the handsome sum of four hundred dollars poured out of their pockets into this fund. Hostesses who cooperated with Mrs. Silver in this grand money- raising project were: Mesdames Ben Tipp, Addis Gutmann, Max Block and Leo Weisfield, not forgetting the husbands who also made gracious hosts. DESSERT BRIDGE Tuesday rolled around, and at the dessert bridge at Temple Center two hundred and fifty women, repre- senting every Jewish organization in the city answered the call the Wel- fare Society sent out, and emulated the feat by raising the same amount. And what a lovely party it was[ The tea table with soft candle light from its two large crystal candelabra and a huge basket of beautiful autumn flowers was very festive. Sixteen handsome prizes sent that number of lucky guests home hug- ging a precious prize. At (Glendale Saturday Climaxing the week&apos;s parties will be the affair at Glendale Golf Club on Saturday night. Twelve hos- tesses, wise in the lore of social and charitable amenities, are planning ingenious ways of making it an out- standing event. Various games and one of Mr. Banfield's famous buffet suppers at midnight are inerely side issues of the evening's entertainment. Reservations may still be had by calling Mrs. Otto Guthman, CA 3540. At Club Villa Tuesday Tile Round Up of the city-wide parties comes on Tuesday with the cabaret and dancing party the Sigma Theta Pi Sorority girls and Pi Tau Pi Fraternity members are sponsor- ing at Club Villa. Here is where guests will "dance" to the thrill of "giving," where all of Seattle Jewry, young, and middling young, will sup of Harry Levinson's bar, sway to Jules Buffano's rhythmic orches- tra, buy cigarettes from pretty society girls--all for the nominal sum one would gladly pay for an evening's fun--aside from the phil- anthropic angle of it. "We must not hesitate now, the weather is becom- ing unmistakably wintry. The chil- dren and their mother mothers, too, need proper food to keep them fit and reasonably happy." ENGAGEMENT: From San Fran- cisco comes the interesting news of the engagement of Mr. Charles W. Rosembaum, younger son of Mrs. C. W. Rosenbaum of that city to Miss Leta Herzog of Sall Rafael.
