It was a knockout punch at the Beverly Hilton when The Oscar De La Hoya Foundation honored entrepreneur producer Sam Nazarian, actor Antonio Banderas and California State Controller Steve Westly at the ninth annual "Evening of Champions" Dec. 6. The evening's emcee, funnyman George Lopez brought the laughs and Macy Gray delivered a one-two punch with a crowd-pleasing performance. As a surprise for Banderas, uber Producer Jeffrey Katzenberg presented the Spanish hunk with his award. A spirited live auction raised $80,000 bring the evening's total to more than $750,000 raised. The money provides athletic and educational opportunities to the children of the East Los Angeles community.
