Bulgari Gala goes to great lengths

Benefit brings out celebs for good cause

It took $15,000 to get Save the Children managing director Mark Shriver to “drop the F-bomb” at the Bulgari Gala on Thursday. It was just too much money for the kids, so he overcame his “Catholic guilt” and threw one out at the elite gang assembled at Ron Burkle’s palatial Beverly Hills estate.

Shriver followed honoree Paul Haggis, he of the Artists for Peace and Justice, to the stage, and soon the helmer was throwing out F-bombs like they were water as he urged the glittery crowd to contribute to that group’s Haitian relief efforts. It worked: $100K was raised for four trips to that earthquake-torn country (the winners will go via Ryan Kavanaugh’s private G4). That despite Maria Bello’s roast: “Paul Haggis is my hero, but I don’t like to admit that because he is an ….!,” she joked, letting go with an A-bomb.
