Friends and sup­port­ers of LIFE will gather at the Mar-a-Lago Club Dec. 6 for the 21st an­nual “Lady in Red” Gala, themed ANight in Shang­hai, for an ad­ven­tur­ous evening.

The evening will be­gin at 6 p.m. with cock­tails un­der the full, late-au­tumn moon, which will in­clude a silent auc­tion, a vodka luge, caviar and an ice sculp­ture cour­tesy of The Park Foun­da­tion, Pa­trick M. Park. Cock­tails will be fol­lowed by din­ner, a live auc­tion of­fer­ing items in­clud­ing jew­elry do­nated by Tif­fany & Co. and danc­ing with the Sul­tans of Swing.

Co-chairs of the evening are Lois Pope, Dr. Robert Mackler and Pa­trick M. Park. Honorary Chairs are Me­la­nia and Don­ald Trump. Guests will be en­ter­tained by comedic legend Martin Short. An in­for­mal meet and greet re­cep­tion with Short will take place at 6 p.m.

Short, a cel­e­brated co­me­dian and ac­tor, has won fans and ac­co­lades in tele­vi­sion, film and theater since his break­out sea­son on Satur­day Night Live almost 30 years ago. He won his first Emmy in1982 while work­ing on Canada’s SCTV Com­e­dyNet­work, which brought him to the at­ten­tion of Satur­day Night Live pro­duc­ers. He be­came a fan-fa­vorite for his por­trayal of char­ac­ters such as Ed Grim­ley, lawyer Nathan Thurm and song­writer Irv­ing Co­hen.

His pop­u­lar­ity and ex­po­sure on Satur­day Night Live led Short to cross over quickly into fea­ture films. He made his de­but in Three Ami­gos and fol­lowed with In­ner Space, Three Fugi­tives, Clif­ford, Pure Luck and TimBur­ton’s Mars At­tacks. One of Short’s most mem­o­rable roles was in the re­make of Fa­ther of the Bride, as Franck the wed­ding plan­ner, a role he reprised a few years later in Fa­ther of the Bride Part II. Short was also fea­tured in the an­i­mated film Mada­gas­car 3 and the TimBur­ton film Franken­wee­nie.

Most re­cently seen on the CBS hit com­edy se­ries How I Met Your Mother in the re­cur­ring role of Gar­ri­son Coote, Short is cur­rently star­ring in the first sea­son of the new FOX se­ries Mu­laney.

All pro­ceeds from the evening will ben­e­fit LIFE’s part­ner­ship with Amer­i­can Hu­mane As­so­ci­a­tion (AHA), which in­cludes a pro­gram to pro­tect the voice­less and the vul­ner­a­ble in so­ci­ety - chil­dren and an­i­mals.

Spon­sors of LIFE’s “Lady in Red” gala in­clude: Tif­fany & Co., The Park Foun­da­tion, Amer­i­can Hu­mane As­so­ci­a­tion, Wells Fargo Ad­vi­sors, Clien­tele Beauty, Bra­man Mo­tor­cars and Hoff­man Cho­co­lates.
