Smokey Gets In Your Eyes and Other Famous Faces from the Dallas Rocks Red Carpet

Our Danny Fulgencio happened by the Dallas Rocks benefit Saturday night at Union Station, where Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons gathered quite the hodgepodge of celebrities for his African empowerment-through-education fundraiser: Smokey Robinson (who performed), Barbara Bush and Jenna Bush-Hager, Veronica Webb, former Houston Rocket Dikembe Mutombo, ex Duncanville High star-turned-Denver Bronco Ray Crockett and Joseph Simmons -- you know, the man who put the "Run" in Run-D.M.C. Danny brought back this slide show; it's almost like being there.
