Madonna's Instagram: At the Bryan Lourd Gala

New York got its Oscar party early as a star-filled Hollywood supper club took over Alice Tully Hall Monday night, with prime spots occupied by Madonna, Alibaba executive vice chairman Joe Tsai and Bank of America investment banking vice chairman Cary Thompson.

The magnet was Bryan Lourd, chairman and managing partner of Creative Artists Agency. The occasion: the Lincoln Center American Songbook gala that honored him.

Clearly Lourd, a board member of the performing-arts center, has a lot of friends. The gala raised $2.75 million, twice as much as last year, and had twice as many guests, said Katherine Farley, the chairman of Lincoln Center.

'I do consider myself the best friend of a lot of people. I feel it and I mean it,' Lourd said at the end of the program.

Gala chairman Adrienne Arsht made sure those friends were treated well, with a buffet dinner of wild mushroom macaroni and cheese and shrimp and grits. Guests relaxed in all-white banquettes, lounges and tables filling every corner of the hall and a tent.
