   Kirk and Anne Douglas has doubled their Los Angeles Skid Row pledge for homeless women to $10 million. Named to honor his wife, the Anne Douglas Center for Women at the Los Angeles Mission opened two decades ago on Valentine’s Day.

   The 95-year-old actor also gave his wife an award on Wednesday for her work at the shelter, and a five decade effort to help homeless women. The total amount donated to this Southern California shelter by Kirk Douglas this year has reached $15 million.                         ANNE & KIRK DOUGLAS

   The Anne Douglas Center provides a year-long rehabilitation program for homeless and otherwise destitute women. Rehabilitation is followed by a transition program that gives the women the support they need to return to life outside the Mission.


   The Juilliard School plans a star-filled private musical tribute to Marvin Hamlisch, headlined by Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin and Liza Minnelli. Also slated to perform include Itzhak Perlman, Michael Feinstein, former stars of A Chorus Line, and the current cast of The Nutty Professor.

   The A-list memorial will be held this coming Tuesday evening at the school’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater.  The storied composer’s songbook is expected to be part of the featured program.                      MARVIN HAMLISCH (at Julliard) —->

   The composer became the youngest person accepted by Juilliard. At the time, Marvin was seven years of age. His wife of 26 years, Terre, is expected to open the evening.
