The weekend raised a half-million dollars for cerebral palsy research, and the good cause provoked lively bidding at a charity auction emceed by Mike (Mannix) Connors. Two Andy Warhol paintings fetched $30,000 apiece; then the artist laid out $5,000 to buy walk-on roles in an upcoming movie for himself and socialite Cornelia Guest, 19. A hunting or fishing expedition with Cheryl Tiegs on ABC-TV's American Sportsman went for $16,000. Tony Bennett tried to get Barbra Streisand to sing—"How much money will it take?" he yelled. Streisand wasn't tempted. Neither was Moore, who nixed a bid to auction off his room key, pleading, "I'm in training for tomorrow's concert."
