• Friends of the High Line summer benefit. IAC Building, 555 W. 18th St., nr. West Side Hwy., 6:30 p.m. Expected: Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, André Balazs, Barry Diller, Gifford Miller, Ed Norton. A coterie of crazed developers plans to throw up some heinous buildings and block out the sun while the stars are unwittingly swilling Champagne.
• Cipriani Wall Street Concert Series featuring 50 Cent. Cipriani, 55 Wall St., nr. William St., 7 p.m. The event benefits 50’s “G-Unity Foundation” as well as the Duchess of York’s “Sarah Ferguson Foundation,” and frankly those organizations are probably so similar that they might as well merge.
