It's a hodgepodge of celebrities and wannabes at tonight's annual Vista Del Mar and Family Services' Sports Sweepstakes Dinner. Comedian Paul Rodriguez and Olympian Mitch Gaylord co-emcee the event that includes an appearance by the Playboy Bunnies but not Hef himself. Tommy Lasorda will be honored, cocktails will be drunk and thousands of dollars will be raised for troubled and at-risk youth. Drop a cool 1K to do your part.

Proceeds will help send comedians to Israel for comic relief and also benefit Israeli charities.

Jason Alexander becomes the latest star to try his hand at children's book writing with his new release "Dad, Are You the Tooth Fairy?" (Which would perhaps be better titled, "Dad, Since When Are You a Writer?") Still, we'll grant you Alexander's a pretty funny guy, and you can size up his literary talents for yourself tonight. He reads from his book and signs it at Barnes and Noble at the Grove.

7:30 p.m. 189 Grove Drive, Los Angeles. (323) 525-2070
