Movie producer John Fielder was the contributor of one of the most popular items at a recent Bryn Mawr auction. Fielder, who is producing the new John Waters movie, "Serial Mom," offered a day on the set of the movie, which will be filmed here, and the opportunity to meet stars Kathleen Turner and Sam Waterston.

Another popular item was lunch with his wife, Bryn Mawr grad-actress Bess Armstrong.

Anne and Andy London and Tim Casgar and his wife, Pat Barry-Casgar, did a marvelous job chairing the auction. The glittery event at the Hyatt Regency Hotel attracted 400 people and raised more than $100,000 for the school's Second Century Faculty Fund.

The Orioles opener was a disappointment for Leslie Borenstein, who owns Eclectic men's store in the Gallery at Harborplace with her husband, Arnold. She and her manager, Karen Hoffberger, had high hopes that Bill Clinton would wear one of the ties they had delivered to his office for his Opening Day pitch at Camden Yards.

ZTC But the president opted for the more casual look of a baseball hat and jacket instead of the Brian Bubb designer baseball ties the women had sent. According to Hoffberger, their goal was to let Clinton know that such a stylish men's shop is in nearby Baltimore, and they are ready, willing and able to dress a president.

Pat Mochel, a former reporter for WBAL-TV, has a pet project these days. She's chairing a black-tie dinner dance April 24 at the Hyatt Regency for the League: Serving People with Physical Disabilities.

It's hard to believe Mochel has been off the air for nine years. She left the demanding life of television to spend more time with her son, who had been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and mild autism. He's now 10. She has three other children.

In addition to her volunteer work for the League, formerly the League for the Handicapped, she makes informational videos for schools and is thinking about becoming an occupational therapist.

If you'd like to attend the dinner dance, call (410) 323-0500 for tickets, which are $150 a person.
