F.A.O. SCHWARZ TO HOST PARTY FOR A FRIENDLY DINOSAUR AND FOR JIM GURNEY AUTHOR OF THE BEST SELLING CHILDREN'S BOOK, 'DINOTOPIA' Some 500 guests including: Ted Turner, Jane Fonda (baseball permitting), Lynn Revson, Pat Kennedy Lawford, her son and star of "All My Children" Chris Lawford, Carly Simon, Cy Coleman, Dr. Ruth, Laura and Jon Tisch, Patty and Marty Raynes, Mayor Dinkins has been invited as has Mary Tyler Moore, who is among other things, international chairman of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and others are expected to be on hand to celebrate the return of the dinosaur at a party honoring James Gurney, artist/author of "DINOTOPIA," a story of a lost island where dinosaurs and humans have lived for centuries in harmony. The dinosaur at the party, a baby Apatosaurus, comes to F.A.0. Schwarz from Dinamation International Corp. It moves and roars, but luckily is a vegetarian. Children of all ages attending the party will be photographed with the dinosaur and be given the photos as souvenirs. Dinosaur music will be heard throughout the festivities. And because dinosaurs are vegetarians, all of the food served will be dinosnacks. Copies of the Turner Publishing book, "DINOTOPIA" will be sold at the party and a portion of the proceeds will be donated by F.A.O. Schwarz to The New York Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation International. DATE: Wednesday, Oct. 14 TIME: 7 - 9 p.m. PLACE: The Ultimate Toy Store F.A.O.
