To Do Wednesday: Simon and Boosters

Fashion Week and its grind have receded into memory (or so it would seem from our Twitter, on which every Condé staffer we follow has finally stopped totemically retyping their every Starbucks order), and Simon Doonan is free to swan about the society soirées from which he draws his coy observations. Tonight brings the 24th Annual Auction and Party for Bailey House, an organization that provides housing and services to homeless people with HIV. Will the author of Gay Men Don’t Get Fat (Harvey Fierstein apparently notwithstanding) press the point by pouring a salt shaker over the plate of fellow guest Andy Cohen? Will fellow attendee Sherri Shepherd look on, nostalgic for the relative camaraderie of The View? The answers shall be revealed at this auction! (And you thought you were just going for the charity.)

Lexington Avenue Armory, 68 Lexington Avenue, VIP reception at 6 p.m., event at 7 p.m., auction at 8:30 p.m. Visit or call (212) 633-2500 x455 for tickets.
