RACE FOR A CURE: Hollywood brought the star power to the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Friday to fete the 21st anniversary of Race to Erase MS, which raised over $1.6 million for Nancy Davis’ Center Without Walls. This year, media mogul Dean Singleton took home the Medal of Hope award saying, “Being diagnosed [with multiple sclerosis] is depressing until you meet Nancy Davis. Now, I have a chance to walk again.” Guests then enjoyed a performance by CeeLo Green, who sang hits like “Crazy,” followed by a set from Natalie Cole and finally Steven Tyler. “Honestly every time I see him I get very star struck. He’s a legend,” said Carmen Electra of the Aerosmith lead singer, who performed a duet with Cole. Tyler then asked, “Where’s my new girlfriend, that beautiful blonde?” before serenading Davis with her favorite song, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.”
