So many events, so little time. First world problems for sure.  : )

Apologies for the delay.

I’ve got pix from the always fantastic Southampton Hospital — now Stony Brook Southampton Hospital — annual benefit on Saturday night, which raised more than $1.5 million for the Jenny & John Paulson Emergency Department and brought out 700 of our heaviest Hamptons hitters. Thanks Lisa Tamburini for getting so many good shots! Always appreciated. And (whisper) apologies for driving you and Lenny crazy that night.

 

 

Photos: Hamptons Paddle for Pink

The Douglas Elliman paddlers were most definitely up for the challenge.

Torrential downpours absolutely won’t stop paddle board enthusiasts, no matter the day, but especially not when they are paddling for a cause as important as breast cancer research. Held this morning at Havens Beach in Sag Harbor, the seventh annual “Hamptons Paddle and Party for Pink” race, featuring pro surfer|paddle board inventor Laird Hamilton and pro volleyballer Gabrielle Reece, got off to a terrific, if soaking wet, start.

LongHouse Reserve Boom! Photos & Video

If you’re looking for more photos from LongHouse Reserve‘s annual summer fundraiser, “Boom! The Cosmic LongHouse Benefit 2017,” then you’re in luck. I’ve got them all here — mostly, but edited down just a tad — shot by the famed Patrick McMullan. Woohoo! Plus, I’ve got a couple of short videos I shot during the The Brooklyn Peaches and Mohsen Namjoo performances too. Enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

Watermill Center Photos

Art installation above the entrance

What better way to come back after my semi-sabbatical than to share pix from the wonderful, wacky (and oftentimes artfully naked) Watermill Center benefit. This year’s gala, Fly into the Sun, once again brought together the worlds of art, performance, music, theatre, design, architecture and fashion. Always a hot ticket, this year’s outrageous event did not disappoint. Thanks to Lisa Tamburini for capturing the scene for us here at Hamptons Party Girl.

Described as an “enchanted forest,” the 24th annual summer fundraiser included performances and installations by Daniel Monroy Cuevas, Rachel Frank, Regina José Galindo, Kate Gilmore, Somos Monstros (Raúl de Nieves and Erik Zajaceskowski), Storyboard P, and VVHY, alongside the work of The Center‘s International Summer Program participants. After dinner, the evening continued with a special performance and tribute to Lou Reed by Laurie Anderson. To close the night, guests enjoyed dessert, dancing and a live DJ set by Flat White aka Virgil Abloh.
