Tiki Barber, the retired football legend who now makes his living as an NBC “Today” correspondent, was the big name at an inaugural benefit last night for a newish junior fundraising arm of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Barber and Aussie VH1 host Jason Dundas joined about 500 guests — mostly twentysomethings in body-hugging mini-dresses and slim suits — at New York’s Tribeca Rooftop for a splashy, $150-a-ticket evening. For that price, guests got multiple open bars, a massive sushi station, Middle Eastern kebabs and wraparound views of Manhattan at sunset. What’s Tiki Barber’s connection to Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the Shmooze asked? “Traci [Lynn Johnson] and I came out to support our friend [and Einstein Emerging Leaders head] Kyle Widrick. I think it’s great what he and the other members of the Einstein Emerging Leaders are doing to raise funds and awareness for a really worthy cause, CERC,” Barber said.
