Green Bay Packers wide receiver and “Dancing With the Stars” Season 14 champion Donald Driver was in the Entertainment Capital of the World on Friday for his 10th Annual Donald Driver Celebrity Golf Tournament, and he celebrated with celebrity friends at Wynn Las Vegas.
The party began with dinner at the new Mizumi as Driver and his wife Betina Driver received guests including ESPN’s Ed Werder and Linda Cohen, actor Glynn Turman, actress Dawn Lewis, Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Colin Cole, actress Jenn Korbee, Kato Kaelin and actor Phil Morris.
Mizumi executive chef Devin Hashimoto also greeted guests, and his menu for the evening included spicy king crab roll, soft-shell crab cut roll, dragon roll, mushroom salad, yellowtail jalapeno gelee, robata platter, miso black cod, togarashi crispy Maine shrimp, chicken teriyaki and beef teriyaki.
The celebration then moved to nearby Surrender Nightclub in Steve Wynn’s Encore, where Driver and his entourage were joined by more celebrities, including “DWTS” pro dancers Peta Murgatroyd (Driver’s winning partner), Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Cheryl Burke; Alexis Bellino and Jim Bellino of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” (who partied earlier Friday at Encore Beach Club); and “DWTS” Season 14 contestants Katherine Jenkins and Maria Menounos.
Grey Goose and champagne flowed for the party of 75. Thanks to Bryan Schnitzer for his photo gallery.
