Photo Coverage: Pierce, Moore, Kutcher et al at 'A Night at Sardi's' Alzheimer's Benefit

Last night, March 18, 2010 the stars of Los Angeles came out for the A Night at Sardi's annual musical revue and gala, benefitting the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Laurie Burrows Grad founded this event 18 years ago in honor of her father, the late playwright Abe Burrows. To date, A Night at Sardi's has raised close to $18 million in the fight against Alzheimer's. Last night's evening raised $1 million alone.

This year's gala honored NBC's "Friday Night Lights" and FOX Sports for their work in raising awareness of Alzheimer's disease. Caregiver of the Year honors went to Serge Morales, whose wife was diagnosed with younger-onset Alzheimer's two years ago at the age of 55. Among the evening's surprises:

The cast of ‘Friday Night Lights" (Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, Aimee Teegarden, Scott Porter, Adrianne Palicki, Jesse Plemons and Louanne Stephens) presenting the Abe Burrows Entertainment Award to the show's executive producer, Jason Katims. Actor J. K. Simmons leading cast members from CBS's "Big Bang Theory" (Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, Jim Parsons, and Kunal Nayyar), in a rousing rendition of the show's finale, "You've Gotta Have Heart."

Appearances by other entertainment luminaries included Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, David Hyde Pierce, Soleil Moon Frye, Gina Philips, Jason Alexander, Tracie Thoms, Lea Thomspn, Peter Gallagher, Garry Marshall, Chris Pine, and more.
