One of Palm Beach's more riveting romances, a hotsy-totsy fling around town that could turn into something more serious, involves Chan Cox Mashek, the Texas heiress, and James "Jamie" Kabler, the divorced husband of...

Art, health and beauty will unite for the common good on March 10 at the Robin Rice Gallery to benefit the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering. Donna Karan and Lauren Hutton are the chairmen of the gala reception, featuring an exhibition of photographs by well-known artists called "The Nurturing Spirit." Naturally, Evelyn Lauder will be there, along with her husband, Leonard, the cosmetics tycoon, their son, Gary, soon to be married, and Leonard's brother, Ronald. It was Ronald and his wife, Jo Carole, who were among the co-chairmen of the recent Art Show at the Seventh Regiment Armory. Not brother Leonard and his wife Evelyn, as you read here. I try to keep all the fast-moving Lauders straight but every now and then...

Speaking of fast-moving, Marylou Whitney is a little hard to keep straight too, but we do know -- huzzah, huzzah -- that she is giving a dinner dance Saturday night at the Everglades Club in Palm Beach honor- ing His Highness The Maharajah of Jaipur, may his tribe increase. The Maharajah is the honorary international chairman of the American Red Cross benefit luncheon Sunday at the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club. Gale Sorenson Brophy, a top horse breeder and racer, is the chairman of the luncheon and she's expecting 600, give or take a few. As for the national honorary chairmen -- they include Joan Bove, Eles Gillet, Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Straub, the new owners of the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club, and, of course, la Marylou.

As for Gale Brophy, she and her husband, Giles Brophy, are the proud owners of "Thirty Six Red," the third best three-year-old in 1990, and their "Strike The Gold" won the Blue Grass Stakes and then went on to win the 1991 Kentucky Derby, place second in the Belmont and achieve a place in racing history. So when Palm Beachers refer to Gale as a top breeder and racer they would like you to know they are not just talking crepes Suzette.
