Hideki Matsui, Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, Melky Cabrera, and MLB favorite Don Zimmer rounded out the athletic portion of the guest list. The Hollywood attendees were quite the random assortment, including Inside The Actor's Studio host James Lipton, Good Morning America's Joan Lunden (ok, that's not Hollywood), Penny Marshall, and the more even-tempered cast members of the Sopranos Lorraine Bracco and Michael Imperioli.
The evening began with a cocktail reception and auction, followed by dinner and a live performance by Paul Simon. All proceeds were in benefit of the Foundation's mission to end domestic violence.
