They’re always up for a swanky evening out, and last night (October 1) Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy were spotted at the 2009 UCLA Department of Neurosurgery’s Visionary Ball.
The “Ace Ventura” funnyman and his “Singled Out” gal looked so happy together as they arrived at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel for the shindig.
At this year’s ball, entertainment manager Joan Hyler was presented with the Courage Award, stemming from her recovery after being hit by a speeding car while crossing the Pacific Coast Highway last year.
Bruce Vilanch, who spent long hours with Hyler as she recovered, told the audience, “We thought it was over when they brought her in. They wanted to amputate her legs, she wasn’t breathing on her own, wasn’t responsive. As the night wore on, the waiting room filled with enough clients and friends that it looked like a SAG strike meeting. The staff realized then that she was an unusual patient, especially later, when she came back after four months in a coma to defy everyone’s expectations. She had to learn to speak again, and is now relearning to walk. It’s still an uphill climb, but at least she can climb.”
