Gala Takes Off Aboard Intrepid

Andy Cohen and Meredith Vieira attend the North Shore-LIJ Health System Gala at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum on Thursday.

Andy Cohen and Meredith Vieira co-captained a fund-raising gala aboard the Intrepid Museum on Thursday that was marked by thrills, chills, spills and a performance from Harry Connick Jr.

The evening started with Cohen and Vieira  introducing the LaGuardia Arts High School choir, which delivered an inspired performance of Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind,” complete with a back-flipping break dancer who crashed through the podium, tumbled off the stage and wound up at the feet of big donors at the North Shore-LIJ Health Systems celebration. After the performance, ¬Cohen and Vieira took the stage again, and Cohen cracked, “That was amazing for so many reasons.”

Vieira followed by telling gala donors the tough teen was all right, assuring them: “After hearing you raised more than $20 million he’s suing your asses.”

Connick started slowly, then picked up steam and later recalled his early city gig at the Empire Diner for $10 a night with no backup. On this night, he had a 12-piece orchestra for the moneyed, black-tie crowd.
