Tutor for Big Brothers

Self-deprecation was the rule at Friday’s gala for Big Brothers Big Sisters, which honored Ron Tutor as Man of the Year, an award that came from Disney.

“It’s interesting that it’s on the heels of buying Miramax,” Tutor said at the Beverly Hilton. “But I’m sure there’s no real relation.”

The ceremony honored supporters of the nonprofit, including playwright Mary Willard, who shared a Rising Star award with actor and husband Fred. “I think they’ve run out of people to honor,” joked the scribe, a major fund-raiser for the group, which benefits education and mentorship programs. “Maybe it’s down to the W’s now!” – — Rachel Abrams
