Westwood Hills neighbors raise money for cancer research with ‘Lawn Chair Gala’

Westwood Hills neighbors gathered for an annual tradition Tuesday evening — and honored a former mayor in the process.

Each summer, the homeowners on 50th Terrace gather for “Lawn Chair Galas,” informal block parties with grilling, gabbing and good music, often performed by the neighborhood kids.

The gatherings were a favorite of recently deceased Westwood Hills mayor Allen Roth. So this year, the organizers decided that in addition to some neighborly good cheer, they’d also collect some funds for cancer research.

SM East grads Emma Marston, Lily Kaufmann and Will Fuhrman were among the entertainers.
