Plenty was up for auction, including a Kitchen Aide mixer autographed by Paula, Guy and others. The winning bid – $2,400 (those mixers retail for about $300). “You are getting a really good deal,” Paula told the winner from her seat on the stage. Also on stage was Elaine Lancaster, who kept Paula cool by fanning her. (Nice work all around, Elaine. We even overheard Ming Tsai say you had a nice bum. But next time can we limit the performances from your girls to, say, two instead of four?)
