George Clooney was the night's honoree at the Carousel of Hope Ball in Los Angeles on Saturday night. And he was in such a good mood that Neil Diamond persuaded him to sing along on parts of "Sweet Caroline," despite Clooney's protests that he can't carry a note even though he's Rosemary Clooney's nephew. Meanwhile, his girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, looked stunning in a Monique Lhuillier gown. The event — one of the biggest on the city's fall social calendar — reportedly raised $2.5 million for the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes. [Society News L.A.]
