Chris Paul is used to assisting, but serving? Well, that only happens once a year. This year, unbelievably, the Los Angeles Clippers captain had an additional assist serving—literally—from team owner and billionaire Steve Ballmer.

Top sports, entertainment and philanthropic leaders came together at Mastro’s Steakhouse to eat (steak), drink, be merry and give back at The Chris Paul Family Foundation’s sold out third annual dinner and fundraiser. After a pre-reception, the tables were turned, so to speak, as some of the most powerful names in sports and entertainment acted as servers and sommeliers. ET’s Kevin Frazier acted as the evening’s host, while Ballmer and Clippers coach Doc Rivers served as sommeliers. Servers to the guests included nine-time NBA All-Star Paul,  LL Cool J, ESPN’s Marcellus Wiley, ET‘s Nischelle Turner, Clippers player Diamond Stone and Olympic gold medalist Allyson Felix.

The event, through The Chris Paul Family Foundation (a nonprofit organization which seeks to positively impact individuals and families by leveling the playing field in education, sports and life) benefitted The Children’s Health Fund, which is dedicated to delivering high-quality health care to America’s most disadvantaged children, as well as Year Up, an award-winning national organization that connects motivated young adults in need of jobs with companies in need of talent. After dinner and a live auction, guests including The Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger and Paul’s wife, Jada, were treated to a performance by Grammy® Award winning saxophonist, Mike Phillips.
