Cause Celebre

So, you’re famous. You’re rich. You bathe in champagne. You’re filled with fleeting shame when you drive your Ferrari past people who live in boxes. How to slay the Guilt Monster? Charity. It’s the right thing to do, plus your accountant says it’s a super tax write-off. But alas, fundraisers are such a bore. Wolfgang’s cooking, the Lakers are playing, the night’s spread out before you like a fistful of diamonds on velvet, and you’re chatting up a bunch of snobs. If you’re gonna sacrifice your precious time, you might as well have fun, and the annual Jack in the Box Celebrity Shootout is your chance. Shooting hoops to raise dough for the Great Unwashed? That’s the ticket.

The lineup had yet to be announced at press time.
