Last Thursday evening, Don and Cheri Fleming once again opened their beautiful and party-friendly Westridge home for a good cause. And though it might have been a little hard to feel it, what with the Lakers playing the Spurs on the wide screen televisions, the theme of the evening was "A Night on the Diamond" - as in a baseball diamond.
