Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist was eyed chatting up former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff ahead of the glitzy fundraiser. The pair was locked in conversation and seemed oblivious to the pom-pom waving cheerleaders and models with outfits made of body paint posing nearby.

The evening featured three live boxing bouts and a performance by John Legend, and raised more than $3 million for education and healthcare services for needy children.
