A host of stars came out last week to celebrate the first 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia in the US and help Haiti last week.
The event, held in Los Angeles, saw stars such as Patrick Dempsey, Michael Bay, Aaron Eckhart, Olivia Munn, Maria Menounos, Molly Sims and The Hurt Locker star Jeremy Renner turn out to watch as the Ferrari car went under the hammer for $530,000. Also auctioned were the opportunity to be a Ferrari team member at the Canadian Grand Prix in June, and Ferrari Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso’s original racing suit.
John Mayer was also on hand to perform at the event, which raised over $600,000 to help victims of Haiti’s earthquake through the Catholic Medical Mission Board. CMMB has been working in Haiti since 1912. It was also announced during the evening’s program that the Department of Orthopedics and Hand Surgery of the University of Modena, which has a longtime relationship with Ferrari, will make its knowledge and resources available to help CMMB in Haiti.
