Best Hamptons Fundraisers 2018

Submitted by on July 15, 2015 – 10:32 amNo Comment

Watermill Center Big Bang

There are a few magical moments when the Hamptons transform into a worthy wonderland – namely the best Hamptons fundraisers.   These fantastic events not only raise money for various causes but create memorable evenings.   Think of it as tax deductible decadence.

A few HipHamptons tips:

  • Find out how you can get involved beyond writing a check.
  • Ladies remember flats and wedges are your friends. Stilettos only work if you are aerating a lawn.
  • Silent Auctions are goldmines of great items at discount prices.
  • Bring your business card and winning smile (yes your mother was right) – personal and career connections abound at these events.

Sat. June 2 – Planned Parenthood

The 30th annual event in the Hamptons will be held this year at LTV Studios in Wainscott with a special art exhibit by Niki Johnson. The event draws a wonderful crowd of diverse supporters of this vital health center for women.
