SHORT ORDERS

Gingerbread gala

Even Hansel and Gretel would be pleased to attend the preview of the Holiday Gift Sale and glorious Gingerbread House Auction to take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 30 in Gilda's Club, 1140 Delaware Ave. (There is an admission charge, and reservations are required. Call 332-5900.)

And they'd probably be equally as happy to attend the free display of cookie dwellings from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 1 and 2 in Gilda's Club as part of Artists in Buffalo weekend.

No mortgage problems here!
