East End Benefit
May 25, 2014
More than 170 Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic supporters turned out for the annual East End Benefit on May 25. Two dozen leading artists and photographers donated their works for the silent auction, such as Chuck Close, who donated a signed Polaroid self-portrait. Local businesses, individuals, and cultural attractions offered dozens of additional items such as tickets to the Hampton Classic Horse Show, a boat tour of Peconic Bay, a Hamptons International Film Festival package, a chef’s tasting, and rounds of golf.
Guests sipped cocktails and sampled hors d’oeuvres at the beautiful Southampton home of PPHP Action Fund Board Member Lisa Eisenstein and her husband Stephen. The event was in keeping with the theme, “Celebrate Summer, Stronger Together. Freedom and Care. No Matter What.” More than $200,000 was raised to support PPHP’s health and educational services.
Photographer Michael Halsband, artist/real estate professional Rima Mardoyan-Smyth, and PPHP Board Vice President Ann Pogue-Campbell co-chaired the event, and philanthropist Dorothy Lichtenstein was honorary chair.
