THE PARTY Though the 150 guests at the Whitney Museum were buzzing about his recently announced 2014 retrospective, artist Jeff Koons was focused on humanitarianism as he hosted a black-tie dinner honoring do-gooders including Susan Sarandon and Tina Santi Flaherty. THE PLAYERS Ruffian designers Claude Morais and Brian Wolk and gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn placed bids at the silent auction. THE TUNES Brandi Carlile’s soulful rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” captured the spirit of the night. Photos by Shaun Mader/ Patrick McMullen Co.
