The Party: Jeff Bridges winged his way to town to raise much-needed funds for summer feeding programs through Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. No guest was hungry as uberchef Bryan Voltaggio cooked up stinging nettle gnocchetti alongside former boss Charlie Palmer. The People: Sen. Patrick Leahy, Rep. Jim McGovern, Tony Podesta and Mike McCurry were hosted by Share Our Strength Founder Billy Shore. Best in Show: Mid-auction, Voltaggio threw in an unannounced private seating for 8 at Table 21—booked solid through 2012—bringing the night’s total to $250,000 for hungry children nationwide.
