Thousands of people filled the backlot of Paramount Pictures Studios to lend their support in helping torpedo the

Guests also enjoyed wine, beer and specialty drinks, casino style gaming and even a chance to bid on concert tickets for Adele and Barbra Streisand during a live auction. Concert tickets were donated by Mitch and Madeline Rose and CAA.
