We’re not just fighting cancer. Now we’re outsmarting it. u Breakthrough medical approaches have revealed new
possibilities in cancer treatment—and they are available today at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA).
Our bodies fight off the viruses and bacteria that make us sick. Why not cancer? The answer—discovered only recently—is that cancer cells actually release chemical signals that tell immune cells to stop fighting. New drugs may help fight cancer by turning off those signals. Others kick-start immune responses against certain cancers or help the body generate super-charged cancer-killing immune cells. By unleashing the body’s immune system to fight cancer, immunotherapy gives many patients more options in their fight against cancer. cancercenter.com

She’s a great indoor dog that is housetrained and aware of the house rules. At the end of the day she likes to curl up beside you and have her lion-like fur coat brushed until she falls asleep. Meet Foxy at the Arizona Humane Society’s Biltmore Petique located 2502 E. Camelback Road in Phoenix. Her adoption fee is $350 and includes her spay surgery, a dental and vaccinations.

Last fall yours truly was invited along with my lovely wife Beth, to tour the prestigious Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills by Friends of Greystone Mansion, the homes preservation society. While I knew that stately mansion on the hill built by the Doheny Family in the late 1920s existed, I knew little of its history. Truth be told I was far more interested in the crimes that had plagued Lana Turner, George Reeves, Marilyn Monroe, Sharon Tate and other celebrities. Growing up in Southern California in the 1960s and 70s those were the high profile crimes we all remembered. I often found myself together with Julia and Christie Brophy as teenagers, mapping out the various crime scenes of the serpentine streets of “the Platinum Triangle” – Beverly Hills, Bel-Air and Holmby Hills. We would do our best to find these homes. Some were easier to find than others and they were never on the Guide Maps to the Stars Homes. We would tip the map sales people to tell us where these homes were. Greystone Mansion was never even mentioned! Funny truth be told, the mansion held more secrets Continued on page 10

We hope you enjoy the recently resurrected Crimes Against High Society in this issue. It’s back by popular demand and we hope to run it at least once or twice a year. Enjoy! Speaking of Beverly Hills, I was quite surprised at how much has changed since my 1970s and early 80s crime solving sprees. The 405 freeway has turned into a parking lot. Beverly Hills, once a 15 minute drive from LAX, is now a good 45 minutes away! Right off the Sunset Boulevard exit on the tip of Bel-Air, lies a homeless internment. Trash blows down Rodeo Drive and there seems to be beggars on every corner. This was not the Beverly Hills I knew growing up and it’s shocking to see what has become of such a beautiful place. While the residential areas are still among the most beautiful in all the world, the surrounding areas leave a lot to be desired. How sad! The winds of change sometimes blow in a direction we wish they would not. Robert Spetzler MD, a man who singlehandedly put Barrow Neurological Institute on the international wellness map, will retire this summer. While his retirement is well deserved, most can’t imagine Barrow or our community without Dr. Spetzler and
his stunningly beautiful and very kind wife Nancy. Together they represent the true essence of a Renaissance couple. Everything you and I have dreamed about doing, the Spetzlers have already done. Their purpose, dynamite smiles and personalities are just the tip of the magnificent couple they represent. For the last three decades we have been fortunate enough to have them among us. We are delighted that Dr. Spetzler will grace our February cover and we wish the Spetzlers all the best life has to offer in their retirement. Congratulations!
In Cocktail Polo News You Should Know: That a so called gent has been 86’d from a popular dining spot due to unspeakable behavior. That an overdone and saccharin socialite actually leaves a large number of high-profile friendship fall-outs in her wake. That a breathtaking, first-sight soul-shaking, one night love making, next-day heartbreaking guy is still married in another state ladies. That two huge foundations just made a splendid institution very happy.

CRIMES AGAINST HIGH SOCIETY
Greystone Mansion Beverly Hills By Bill Dougherty
In 1927 Los Angeles oil tycoon Edward Doheny and his second wife Carrie Estelle dedicated an enormous parcel of land in Beverly Hills to the couple’s only surviving heir, Edward “Ned” Doheny and his wife Lucy. The Greystone Mansion, as it would be called due to its heavy and gothic use of grey slate, would almost immediately bring new meaning to the words “haunted mansion.” Shrouded in controversy from its inception; critics felt $3,166,780, a cost of roughly two hundred million in 2017, to build the home could be far better spent by the family on their countless philanthropic endeavors. However; since the Doheny family had given the city and state an unsurmountable amount of halls, parks and civic centers, they let the critics continue to babble – completing the mansion and its sprawling grounds in 1928.
servants died while quarreling on a kitchen staircase. The police were never contacted. In 1990 a Los Angeles gun deal gone wrong, deposited the victim and his BMW in the mansion’s driveway. Just a few years later a man committed suicide in the gardens of the
Following the move to Greystone in 1928, the dreams of the Doheny’s and their 5 children were cut short; but only temporarily. Ned was killed by his secretary Hugh Plunket in a downstairs guest room. The police were not summoned to the home for several hours. The murder weapon had been cleaned and the bodies moved, yet authorities quickly closed the murder/suicide case. The press and countless historians were not as willing to do so. Many claimed Mr. Plunkett did not suffer from the nervous disorder the entire staff of the mansion all seemed to offer in rehearsed unison. Others said that Mr. Plunkett and Ned Doheny were in fact lovers and that Lucy Doheny had pulled the trigger on them. Both men were buried just feet from each other in Forest Lawn Cemetery, leaving Ned Doheny out of the family plot at another resting place. Lucy Doheny quickly married financier Leigh Battson. Much to the surprise of her high society friends; the new Mrs. Battson continued to live, entertain lavishly and often remodel the stately home until 1954. The next year the Battsons sold the majority of the property, excluding the mansion, to Paul Trousdale. Today the opulent Trousdale Estates surround the home, which was purchased by the city of Beverly Hills and turned into a park and venue in 1971. But things don’t stop there. Since the untimely death of Ned Doheny and his secretary in 1929, several other and often unexplained deaths have taken place there. A maid’s child plunged to its death while playing on the grand staircase in the 1930s and one of two married

home. The next year, two out-of-control trucks speeding down Loma Vista Drive on different days, left their victim’s at the front gates. To date the mansion has claimed more lives than any home in Beverly Hills. It’s been said that at the end of her long life, Lucy Doheny Battson sat beautifully dressed in her exclusive Wilshire Boulevard penthouse in a wing back chair and clutching a rosary. She told her grandchildren and the help that she hoped to not be judged too harshly by
God. She never elaborated on her statement to anyone. Today the mansion is a venue for movie making, weddings, cocktail receptions, auto races and black tie affairs. Yet any visitor to the property seems to have a chill of apprehension upon their arrival ... Volunteers of Friends of Greystone, the mansions preservation society, also say they prefer to come and go from the home all at once rather than linger individually. You get this picture?

A few questions for … Marypat Friedman and Sue Brueckner Interview by Bill Dougherty What sets the Honor Ball apart from other events? Marypat: The Honor Ball has a storied history as one of the premier black tie events in the Valley. The focus is on fun! There are no auctions, just an inviting evening with good friends and wonderful entertainment in one of the grandest settings in town. Where do the funds raised from the evening go? Sue: The purpose of The Honor Ball has been to fund HonorHealth (formerly Scottsdale Healthcare) projects, services and programs that will directly benefit the people in our community – our friends, families and neighbors. More than $14 million has been raised to benefit these programs. All proceeds from this year’s Honor Ball will go directly to support research, programs and services. What does The Honor Ball mean to you? Sue: The Honor Ball enjoys the reputation of being a great event for a great cause. My husband, Kurt, and I have lived and been involved in the Scottsdale community for more than 30 years. While spending my entire professional career in the medical field, I have always had a special place in my heart for the hope and outstanding care that HonorHealth and the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center offer to patients and family members. When asked to co-chair this wonderful event I knew this would be very special as my mother was treated at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center with the most amazing care and compassion. Marypat: My husband, Dr. Jay Friedman, and I have been a part of this medical
community for more than 30 years. This year’s proceeds will support cancer patient services, education and research offered through the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center and HonorHealth Research Institute. A bridge connects them which represents the collaboration between care and cure. I am so proud to co-chair this event, which, through the efforts of our amazing committee, offers hope to so many. What is the theme for the ball this year? Sue: While we don’t have a designated theme, we are delighted with our décor and color scheme. We will continue the tradition of honoring someone who has made a difference in our community. We are thrilled to recognize Tom Sadvary, HonorHealth Chief Executive Officer, as the 2017 honoree for all his leadership. Anything our readers should know about this event that makes it so very successful year after year? Marypat: We are so grateful for the past 40+ years of support for The Honor Ball from physicians and community leaders. Their passion and commitment to the HonorHealth patients and families of the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center really speaks to the enduring success of the Ball.
A few questions for … the Arizona Women’s Hall of Fame Interview by Bill Dougherty What’s the difference between an Arizona Women’s Hall of Fame Honoree and a Living Legacy? Arizona Women’s Hall of Fame Honorees are women who have been deceased for at least two years, while Living Legacies are women who are still living. The criteria for being inducted into the Hall of Fame is the same for both groups. Women in each of these categories have made a lasting contribution to their communities, the state of Arizona and often nationally and internationally. Our first Living Legacy inductees, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Elisabeth Ruffner, the Honorable Rose Mofford and the Honorable Mae Sue Talley each demonstrate the lasting impact such women have in the legal, the humanities, public service and business worlds. Who are some notable past honorees? There are many including Jean Chaudhuri, a Native American activist who founded the Native American Heritage Preservation Coalition to save the Phoenix Indian School, or Marietta Bryant and Daisy Moore whose courageous efforts led to changes in discriminatory hiring practices against black school teachers after desegregation in Arizona. Why is it important to honor Arizona women? Women have played a substantive role in the economic, cultural, social and political development of Arizona since the territorial period. Yet too often, their accomplishments go
2017 Living Legacy Christine Kajikawa Wilkinson
2017 Living Legacy Gladys Taylor McGarey unheralded. They have been scientists, teachers, writers, environmentalists, reformers, community builders and activists. They have started corporations and non-profits, served as the chairs of tribal councils, founded theater groups, implemented change and innovation in communities and so much more. Can you share a story about one of the current or past honorees? Helen K. Mason’s life represents many of the kinds of accomplishments, the dedication and effort typical of Hall of Fame honorees. Her vision and commitment opened new frontiers for youth of color and built bridges between races and ethnicities. Helen worked for 23 years at Phoenix Parks and Recreation. In 1970, she founded the Black Theater Troupe guiding the lives of underserved youth through music, art, dance and sports.

THE JOURNEY TO OZ This year Childhelp guests were treated to a magical journey down the yellow brick road. The dream of chairs Stacie and Richard Stephenson leapt from the silver screen and into the Arizona Biltmore’s Frank Lloyd Wright Ballroom.

BEAUTY SPEAKS FOR US David Roche, the dapper Director and CEO of the Heard Museum, must have been quite pleased with the more than 500 people he welcomed to the new Virginia G. Piper Trust Grand Gallery the other night. Smashing would be an understatement if you were to describe the fabulous new space the gallery occupies. Youâ€™ve gotta see it! Champagne flowed and Native blessings were given and were very touching. Guests arrived and departed in some of the finest Native American jewelry and clothing imaginable. Mary Ellen McKee stole the show. Who would have thought navy blue would look good with turquoise? Mary Ellen did and that is precisely why she always looks so magnificent!

A few questions for … Go Red Luncheon Interview by Bill Dougherty How was the Go Red Luncheon founded? In 2004 the American Heart Association started a bold new initiative to help educate women on their number one health threat. The Phoenix division had its first Go Red for Women luncheon in 2005. I am excited and proud to continue the tradition. Where do the proceeds from the luncheon go? Money raised at the luncheon will fund research, as well as, basic and clinical science which helps people in our area find new ways to keep healthy and free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Recent local research has led to breakthroughs such as clot-busting drugs and drug-eluding stents. Also Hand-Only CPR trials were held in Arizona. What do you hope to accomplish at this year’s luncheon? Ultimately, the goal is to help educate and save womens’ lives. What is the biggest misconception regarding the American Heart Association? I don’t think people realize that the American Heart Association touches everyone’s lives. The AHA has been instrumental in changing laws which make Phoenix a healthier place
to live. From newborns being screened with PulseOx, to healthier lunch programs in schools, to fit friendly businesses and general warning signs awareness; the AHA is there. How much money has been raised at previous luncheons? The Go Red For Women Luncheon is one of the American Heart Association’s signature events. Since its inception, millions of dollars have been raised for women’s research and education. Last year’s luncheon raised more than $500,000!
How can we spread the word about your mission? We encourage women to share information with their sisters, mothers, daughters, co-workers, girlfriends, etc. Women are dying. Education and research are the key. The more women we reach the more lives that we will save.
What big things do you have planned at this yearâ€™s luncheon? The luncheon this year will bring Phoenix women together for a wonderful day of health education, sharing and fundraising. It will feature an expo and wonderful speakers and presenters. How can people buy tickets? Seats and tables are available at http://phoenixgoredluncheon.heart.org.
Honoring 34 Years
of leadership with the “Thank you, Dr. Spetzler” Initiative
Barrow Neurological Foundation is honoring Robert F. Spetzler’s, MD, 34-year leadership of Barrow Neurological Institute through the “Thank you, Dr. Spetzler” Initiative. When Dr. Spetzler became the director of Barrow his mission was to accept challenges, reject norms and push envelopes. Throughout his career he has instilled this goal into every person who has walked through Barrow’s doors seeking an education, a career or care.
Barrow’s neuro experts often take on cases deemed “inoperable” by other institutes. Barrow’s staff has rejected the status quo by developing surgical tools and approaches that are now used in operating rooms around the world. They have pushed the envelope of medicine through developing the cardiac standstill, pioneering thoracoscopic spine surgery and perfecting skull reattachments. Barrow has achieved much under Dr. Spetzler’s leadership but there are still challenges to overcome, norms to be questioned and envelopes to be pushed. This initiative ensures that Barrow’s legacy will continue far into the future. Gifts will be dispersed at Dr. Spetzler’s discretion for innovative research, leadership endowment and capital needs. To become a part of the “Thank you, Dr. Spetzler” Initiative, please contact Barrow Neurological Foundation at 602.406.3041.

When you think of Beverly Hills, you think of the Polo Lounge, swimming pools, mansions and Rodeo Drive. But if you peel back the veneer there’s much more to this West Coast playground for the rich and famous. Barbara Schroeder and Clark Fogg have done an incredible job of putting together a large book that chronicles not only shopping and poolside cocktail parties, but murder!

Every celebrity crime and trial from Lana Turner to the Menendez Murders and Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen’s car-jacking death are profiled and often in graphic detail. The murders of 1950s Superman George Reeves and the t ragically
beautiful Sharon Tate are not showcased here. Those horrific crimes actually occurred within Bel-Air in Los Angeles. The book stays tried and true, strictly focusing only on the hillside city. Whether you like true crime or enjoy the occasional misfortune of celebrities, this is an excellent read!

HONEYMOON St Barths in December
% The couple met at dinner when Joelle was visiting Ann Siner in Telluride in the summer of 2012.
% With their love of Native American Culture and many trips through
Navajo land during their long distance courtship, they both decided to seal their marriage with a traditional Native American ceremony full of meaningful rituals. A member of the Havasupai Tribe, James Uqualla, of Sedona, facilitated the private and spiritual ceremony. The couple drank blessed water from a traditional Santa Clara Indian wedding vase, a gift from the groom to the bride. Ken’s daughter Madie read from Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet and the couple sealed the ceremony with a ceremonial wrap in a Navajo Blanket. Their love and time on Lake Powell and Ken’s love for architecture brought them to the renowned Amangiri Resort for the ceremony. Famed Southwest photographer Scott Baxter captured the essence of the spirit and emotions of the land, ceremony and love between the couple.
