‘Betty’ nursing NYU

Surgical gloves, gauze used in Tisch fund-raising efforts

NEW YORK — The front lawn of financier-producer Keith Barish’s Southampton estate Sunday night had all the trappings of a hospital trauma center: a flashing ambulance and tables strewn with surgical gloves and gauze pads.

It was the perfect stage for a party following a private screening of USA Films’ Renee Zellweger and Greg Kinnear starrer “Nurse Betty.” Event was part of USA Films’ fund-raising efforts in behalf of the NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Tisch was hoping to increase awareness of its 35th anniversary gala at Avery Fischer Hall set for Dec. 4. The program hopes to raise $4 million and is more than halfway there, said dean May Schmidt Campbell, all of it destined for scholarship programs.

“What makes any school great is you have to have talented students,” Campbell said. “Talent is equal opportunity, and sometimes students with no resources are the most talented.”

Although “Betty” director Neil LaBute, a Tisch alum, was on location in London, Zellweger and Kinnear appeared to introduce the film, before being airlifted out of Southampton in advance of the party.

Barish and his wife, Ann, played host to “Betty” producers Stephen Pevner and Gail Mutrux, Tribeca Films co-partner Jane Rosenthal, Manhattan File editor Christina Greeven (the mag co-sponsored the event) and USA chair Scott Greenstein, guests Nora Ephron and Liev Schreiber.

“Given our strong New York presence, we are delighted to give back to a great local resource,” Greenstein said.
