THE PARTY The New York Public Library looked to the East for its Discover Kazakhstan Gala hosted by Sigourney Weaver. Guests enjoyed vodka shots with spoons of caviar that waiters passed around. THE PLAYERS After a performance by Robin Thicke, the audience bid on Kazakh-inspired baubles from jewelers including Chopard and Jacob & Co. in a live auction, raising more than $1 million for the Saby Charitable Foundation to help youth achieve their goals.
