It’s fire, not flour

Lupus L.A. holds its 12th annual Orange Ball

Lupus L.A. held its 12th annual Orange Ball on Thursday at the BevWilshire, where Paula Abdul was on hand to introduce gala chair Daniel Wallace.

Auctioneer Grant Snyder almost flubbed the name of guest Verdine White’s band, Earth, Wind & Fire. He admitted, “I almost called you Earth, Wind and Flour because there’s a restaurant in Santa Monica.”

Natasha Bedingfield closed the night with a four-song acoustic set that included her signature hit “Unwritten.”
