Short Takes

Sixty prints from the soon-to-be-published “A Day in the Life of Hollywood” will be auctioned to benefit L.A.-area schoolchildren. The auction, from 1-5 p.m. today at Butterfield & Butterfield, benefits L.A.’s BEST (Better Educated Students for Tomorrow), an afterschool enrichment program initiated by Mayor Tom Bradley.

Kirk and Anne Douglas will dedicate Harry’s Haven, the newly expanded Alzheimer’s care unit at the Motion Picture & Television Hospital in Calabasas, today at 11 a.m. Initial funding of the expansion came from a $ 1 million gift from the Douglases, with an additional $ 400,000 from the American Cinema Awards Foundation. The Douglases are leading an industry effort to raise $ 1 million more to offset costs of patient care and operations. The unit has tripled from 10 beds to 30. The Douglases’ sons, Michael, Peter and Eric, also will be on hand.
