A live auction will feature signed artworks by Larry Rivers, Richard Prince and Elizabeth Peyton. Plus you can bid on a studio tour of “30 Rock” personally conducted by Alec Baldwin. The gala will wind up at about 11 p.m. For tickets (patrons: $500 cocktail preview, $1,200 for entire evening; junior patrons: $50 or $500), call 631-324-0806.
