Hef presents 2010 Playmate of the Year, Hope Dworaczyk, with a plaque, $100K check and keys to a BMW at Palms celebration in Las Vegas.

Hugh Hefner, Playboy founder and all around legend, crowned 25 year old Texan, Hope Dworaczyk, 2010 Playboy Playmate of the Year at a celebration at Rain nightclub in the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas Saturday night.  The 5’10 brunette stunner received a check for $100K and a BMW.  This was the second time the event was held outside of the Playboy Mansion .  The celebration included music, performances, video highlights of 2010 Playmates and exciting Red Carpet arrivals.  There were 50 Playmates who attended this party from all around the world including 55th Anniversary Playmate (Jan. 2009), Dasha Astafieva, who came in from the Ukraine to perform with Julia Kavtaradze as the duo Nikita.  


Kevin Klein, from the Playboy Morning Show on Sirius radio, was the host.  VIPs appearing onstage included Palms owner, George Maloof, 2009 Playmate of the Year, Ida Ljungqvist, Hef, 2008 PMOY Jayde Nicole (Brody Jenner’s ex), 2006 PMOY Kara Monaco, the Playmate Dancers and the Chicago pop-rock group, The White Tie Affair.  The frontman, Chris Wallace, whipped all of us into a frenzy with a song they performed on MTV’s “The Hills”, “Candle (Sick and Tired)”.  The Palms provided pyrotechnics during this song which made me a little nervous.  Yikes!


Three time Grammy winner Robin Thicke, Alan’s son, performed “Lost Without You” and dedicated it to Hope, who was draped langorously atop his piano.  


Red Carpet VIPs included Hef’s ex, Holly Madison, who is appearing in “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Hef and his current girlfriend Crystal Harris, Iron Chef winner Kerry Simon, Playboy’s Editorial Director Jimmy Jellinek and lots of glam Playmates such as Deanna Brooks, Hiromi Oshima, Summer Altice, Sandra Greenberg, Nancy Harwood, Peggy McIntaggart, Crystal McCahill, Barbara Moore, Janet Quist, DeDe Lind, Toni Ann Thomas and Reagan Wilson to name a few.
