Heavenly kickoff

UCF fundraiser takes in $1 million

HOLLYWOOD — If the afterlife were brought to you by Louis Vuitton, it probably would look a lot like the inaugural United Cancer Front Gala held Monday evening in Los Angeles.

The lavish kickoff event, underwritten entirely by French luxury goods purveyor Louis Vuitton, was held at the Holmby Hills home of Geocities founder David Bohnett and his partner, Tom Gregory.

About 1,000 black-tied guests, including Chris Klein, Katie Holmes, Russell Crowe, NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker and NBC chairman Bob Wright, enjoyed an hour of sipping Dom Perignon before being led past young women in angelic togas to their dinner.

Inside, Steven Bochco, HBO’s Colin Callender and Universal’s Stacey Snider and Scott Stuber applauded presentations by UCF founder Lilly Tartikoff and co-hosts Jennifer Connnelly and Salma Hayek, as well as Louis Vuitton chairman Yves Carcelle, before the evening ended with a performance by Seal.

With tables going for up to $50,000, some $1 million was earned for the UCF.
