Gian Carlo, Chip, his wife Melinda (she's Happy Rockefeller's daughter), Carolina and Reinaldo Herrera, the Peabodys, Cathy and Bill Rayner, Happy Rockefeller, Veronica Hearst, Letizia Boncompagni, Consuelo Crespi and Khalik Rizk were all at Lily Auchincloss's apartment for another gathering honoring Gian Carlo.

"Splendors of a Summer Night" on May 18 -- an auction presided over by Art Buchwald with all sorts of exciting donations from distinguished museum officials the world o'er. Chairmen of the evening are Arthur Ochs Sulzberger and Mrs. S. Parker Gilbert. Chairmen of the junior committee are Nicholas Polsky and Nan Swid. The Hank Lane/Marc Stevens orchestra will handle the music in the Engelhard Court and deejay Tom Finn will do the honors in the Carroll and Milton Petrie European Sculpture Court. Cheers.

Kitty Carlisle Hart, a charming woman of many parts, among them chairman of the New York State Council on the Arts, will be honored at a dinner tonight at the Museum of Modern Art in recognition of her lifetime achievements and longstanding support of the arts in New York. Plus her special friendship with the MoMA over the years. The evening will begin with cocktails in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden -- if it doesn't rain -- and go on to dinner in Sette MoMA, the Museum's new restaurant. Many honors have been heaped deservedly on Kitty, but this one is special to her. Helping her celebrate will be such as the James Wolfensohns, Lily Auchincloss, the Sid Basses, Leonora Hornblow, Rosamond Bernier and John Russell, the Laurance Rockefellers, David Rockefeller, Phyllis Wagner, Nancy Kissinger, John Richardson and a lot of others just like them.
