Motorcycle Charity Associates brought together bikers, Playmates and war veterans for its aptly named Leather Meets Lace benefit Saturday night at the Playboy Mansion. Charity benefits wounded warriors.
The fourth annual edition included a live auction featuring a limited edition collection of Playboy centerfolds, a pewter reproduction of Harley Davidson assembly line and a prop gun used by John Wayne.
Jonathan Lipnicki joked that he hoped “the wrong person” didn’t end up with the gun.
Between auction items, the Vertigirls flaunted their athletic skill on an array of poles sticking up out of the stage.
“You’ve got to marvel at the engineering,” said “The Social Network” thesp Bryan Barter; not a single pole toppled.
With wall-to-wall bikers, babes and bigshots, there was really only one thing missing: Hugh Hefner himself. – — Michael Sullivan
