Our future husband Stephen Colbert hosts “A Funny (Groovy) Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s,” a benefit for Michael J. Fox’s foundation featuring the fat-versus-thin Rachael Ray, social-climbing Eliot Spitzer, dressmaker Donna Karan, and moderately talented but hot top-40 kings Gavin DeGraw and Rob Thomas. Later, it’s a talk on Che Guevara’s life, sponsored by the Freedom Socialist Party and featuring a “zesty Cuban” dinner. Is there any other kind of Cuban, we ask you?

[A Funny (Groovy) Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s, Sheraton Hotel, 811 Seventh Avenue, 7 p.m., 212-245-6570; Che Guevara, Freedom Hall, 113 West 128th Street, 7:30 p.m., 212-222-0633]
