FRIDAY, MAY 22, 1992

magician Steve Weikal stroll-
ing and doing his eye-opening
tricks as a surprise since
MCF knows how much Dave
loves magic.
But Sasha's evening took
another tail waggin' turn for
the goodie part when human
mom Doreen walked around
shaking her crystal dinner
bell.
Good thing little Sasha
wasn't there when Iry said to •
Dave, "That's no ferocious
Doberman" . . . Dave hurried-
ly exclaimed, "I hope you
didn't tell him that!"
We found the best table in
the house . . . in the huge
Hermelin kitchen where all
the food you wanted was amid
some mighty comfortable sur-
roundings and the pleasant
company of Cis and Marty
Kellman, Iry and Olga
Dworkin and Dorothy and Dr.
Jerry Timmis.
Sasha eventualy also found
his way to the kitchen but the
oodles of employees weren't
dropping any of that good
food, so why stay around? .. .
He's probably seen Dave gril-
ing fat kosher hotdogs before
on the kitchen's heated
parallel bars . . . or passing
around those special kind of
potatoes of his . . . But Sasha
came back anyway because it
was quite a show in the kit-
chen . . . guests able to have
all the seconds they wanted
without standing in line and
he still getting his share of
scraps.

hen the name Her-
melin crops up,
people usually only
think of Dave and Doreen.
But there is another
member of the household who
lives there and considers him-
self the "Rodney Danger-
field" of their Bingham
Farms abode.
Even though Sasha
Hermelin likes to eat on the
floor, he gets no respect .. .
Sasha wasn't even invited to
see his human dad and mom
honored when the Michigan
Cancer Foundation recently
held its 10th annual dinner,
"A Championship Evening At •
The Palace" in Auburn Hills,
the sports and entertainment
emporium of which pop is a
partner . . . Dave and Doreen
were being recognized for
their efforts in raising a
whopping $20 million for
MCF in the past decade.
So what if Sasha is a dog?
. . . The 14 years of his life he
has had to live in the back-
ground while Dave and
Doreen were being heaped
honor upon honor for their
charitable and humanitarian
work.
But Sasha doesn't mind .. .
He loves people and being a
mutt has its advantages .. .
Like when there's a party at
the Hermelin home, which is
quite often . . . Sasha is in his
glory, going from room to
room watching the people and
probably saying it's a good
thing he doesn't have to dress
like that or listening to some
of them talk and being glad
he can't.
And there's the low down
advantage, too, eating all that
good food people drop, some-
times on purpose, and not
having to watch his manners.
A couple of nights before
the big Palace shindig was
another happy day in the life
of Sasha Hermelin . . . He
didn't have any trouble get-
ting around the 200 or so peo-
ple . . . plenty of room walk-
ing between a lot of legs to
wherever Sasha wanted to go,
which was everywhere.
He listened to Iry Dworkin
and Harold Berry reminisce
about yesteryears when both
graduated back in 1947 from
Wayne Law School . . . Got a
kick out of Judie Sherman be-
ing so excited at the offer of
four free Piston playoff tickets
someone wanted to give her
. . . She didn't know they had
been eliminated . . . Watching

However, as happy as Sasha
was that night he was disap-
pointed two days later . . . not
being able to see Dave and
Doreen honored by a whopp-
ing 1,400 people in the wide-
open Palace that looked so dif-
ferent and larger without its
basketball floor.
I don't know whether Sasha
digs gourmet dining or not
. . . if it's food, he probably
does . . . but that was the
Machus fare for the evening
. . . passed pates and assorted
hors d'oeuvres and a
delightful dinner of chicken
galantine, baby lamb chops,
etc., plus appropriate wines
. . . He would have seen a
Palace decorated with
elaborate streamers hanging
from the high ceiling rafters
. . . elevators waiting to take
people to and from the rest-
rooms . . . Jerry Timmis giv-
ing Frieda his jacket because
she was cold . . . and when the
evening was over, hearing her
say, "Thanks, you were a life
saver." . . . Nothing new to
Jerry, a fine cardiologist.

Sasha doesn't drink so he
wouldn't have felt bad if
nobody offered him some-
thing from the open bar .. .
And he later probably would
have been too busy looking
for food to notice the good
show put on by hard-working
Smokey Robinson, song
writer and vocalist recording
artist, and his troupe.
Dave and Doreen were
honorary chairpersons for the
event . . . He is the immediate
past chairman of the board of
trustees and presently chair-
man of MCF's important
Special Advisory Council .. .
Gene and Marcia Applebaum
and Randy and Judy Agley
were dinner co-chairfolks .. .
Mort Crim did his annual
fine job of emcee for the even-
ing that raised a tidy
$550,000 toward MCF cancer
research and patient services.
The next time you are
to Dave and Doreen's home,
don't mention the Michigan-

Sasha eats like a
king when there's
a party.

Cancer Foundation's ex-
cellent 10th annual dinner to
little Sasha Hermelin . . ,He
may be a mutt with a few
kinds of breeds but Sasha is
human too, well sort of, and a
bit sensitive . . . However,
even if he wasn't invited, just
like all the 1,400 who show-
ed up for the event, Sasha is
happy about all that money
raised for MCF and human
daddy and mom Dave and
Doreen being honored.
Just let him go about doing
his thing from room to room
. . . and for Pete's sake,
whatever you say, don't let
Sasha know he's a little dog!
THERE'LL BE A second
Matt Brady's around June 15
. . . Location number two will
be at the Holiday Inn of Far-
mington Hills . . . Susan
Fayne and Matt Brady will
also take over the complete
catering for banquets with all
types of food . . . Imagine a
bar mitzvah of 300 with
everyone having Bradybur-
gers! ... The kids would pro-
bably love it . . . and a lot of
grownups, too . . . Matt
Brady's number one locale is
on Southfield north of 13 .. .
Julie Patterson, formerly of
Norm's, will be general
manager of both Matt Brady's
plus the catering at Holiday
Inn of Farmington Hills.
