Biker party takes wing with Crow

Armstrong honored at Unforgettable dinner

HOLLYWOOD — There’s a winning two-fer that comes with honoring Lance Armstrong: an accompanying perf from g.f. Sheryl Crow.

Armstrong was honored at Tuesday’s BevWilshire black-tie Saks Fifth Avenue Unforgettable dinner. At the pre-reception, the six-time Tour de France winner mentioned he’d biked 95 miles that day — from West Hollywood through Glendora up Mount Baldy and down into Claremont.

As she began her acoustic set later in the evening, Crowe said that while Armstrong cycled, “I had my nails done, bought some jewelry and had lunch with friends.”

Dinner kicked off with remarks from Tom Hanks on the Biomarker Discovery Project, which the dinner helps fund; brief speeches from a troika of Nobel laureates; and lively perfs from Jay Leno and Robin Williams.

Hanks handled the auctioning of two Armstrong-autographed racing bikes, which went for $70,000 apiece. Hanks said they came with “a ride with Lance, Robin (Williams) and three Nobel laureates over Coldwater Canyon for a nice steak dinner at the Sportsmen’s Lodge.”

The award presentation to Armstrong from the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund was made by Rita Wilson and Kate Capshaw.

The dinner, chaired by Kelly Chapman Meyer, Anne Douglas, Quinn Ezralow, Marion Laurie and Jamie Tisch, was capped by a Crow-Natalie Cole duet of Beatles tune “In My Life.”
