Vanity at the Hard Rock Hotel and UFC President Dana White hosted the TJ Lavin and Ty Pinney benefit to raise funds for the ailing BMXers. In early November, Lavin and Pinney were critically injured while performing in Las Vegas. Friends, fans and celebrities gathered to support the stars. The event hosted an auction that raised more than $500,000 — all of which go to Lavin and Pinney. Some auction items included Lavin’s autographed practice bike, a day at the Fantasy Factory and UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta’s artwork.
The list of attendees included Dana White, David Spade, Jason Giambi, Joe Rogan, Lorenzo Fertitta, MMA fighters Vitor Belfort and Forrest Griffin, owners of TapOut MMA clothing Skrape and Punk Ass, Rampage Jackson’s trainer Tiki Barbar, model Arianny Celeste, Xtreme Radio 107.5 Las Vegas’ Dave Farrah and BMXer Cesar Flores.
