Malibu Seen

DOG GONE GOOD CAUSE

It was mariachis and margaritas all around as animal lovers got together at the beautiful, flower-filled estate of Bob and Erika Brunson for a Mexican-themed fiesta honoring Pritchett Rapf’s Gail Pritchett and Coldwell Banker’s Erin Halley for their good deeds on behalf of our four-legged friends. The two top Realtors pitched in $10,000 a piece on behalf of the Roy Dunlap Spay and Neuter Foundation.

They were greeted by a lively Mexican band, which serenaded them with snappy tunes like “La Bamba” while servers made the rounds with South-of-the-border treats like ahi tuna tacos and spicy shrimp with aioli sauce.

Gayle looked fresh as a summer breeze in summer pinstripes as did Erin, also in white.

Actor Earl Holliman had a few heart-felt words of praise, saying “It’s wonderful to be surrounded by so many friendly people who really care about animals.” The duo was cheered on by Malibu neighbors Paula Kent Meehan, Jean Kerkorian and Erin’s dad, Scott.

The Roy Dunlap Foundation aims to make the 30,000 dogs and cats are killed each year a thing of the past by educating pet owners and providing free spay and neuter services with its state-of-the-art mobile hospital.

Gayle and Erin were also given a big thank you by Mrs. B, who says the funds are desperately needed in the hope that every pup and kitty will have a loving home. It’s a noble cause fur-sure!

PUPPY LOVE

Speaking of pets, kudos and congrats to beauty Sandra Bullock and her tattooed Monster Garage hubby Jesse James. The two celebrated their one year wedding anniversary, but not with traditional paper or posh toys. Instead, they adopted Bebe a stray one-eyed Chihuahua from an animal shelter in Long Beach.

The pup can now pal around with Poppy, their three-legged mutt, as well as five other pooches who make up the Bullock-James household. Sylvia Gyimesi of Best Buddies rescue organization applauds the pair for their act of kindness. She has said, “Certain people have the heart to adopt a special needs dog. Sandra and Jesse know these dogs deserve a special home.” Bow Wow!

HELPING HANDS

The doctor or, should we say, doctors were definitely in as the cast of the hit show Grey’s Anatomy joined their real-life UCLA counterparts at the Future in Hand benefit gala at the Kodak Theater. Members of the GA ensemble were honored for their portrayal of the docs and the day-to-day challenges that are a way of life in the medical community.

Dr. Jonathan Hiatt, who served as one of the show’s medical consultants, presented the first of the evening’s awards to executive producer and creator Shonda Rhimes. Actress Diane Keaton also took the stage, presenting the next award to UCLA Department of Surgery chief Dr. Ron Busuttil.

Following a gourmet spread courtesy of Wolfgang Puck, the guests were given an on-screen tour of UCLA’s new state-of-the-art medical facility slated to open in 2007. The event raised 600K to keep UCLA on the cutting edge!
