The 13th Annual A Hamptons Happening celebrated culinary excellence, philanthropy and science for a cancer cure on August 5, 2017 to benefit the research programs of the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF). The event marked the announcement of two new SWCRF research grants and closed with exciting performances by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright and recording artist Sophie Beem, a protégé of Beyoncé.

Set under an expansive tent at the Bridgehampton estate of Maria and Kenneth Fishel, the fundraiser featured tastings from some of the leading chefs, restaurants and food and beverage brands in New York City and the Hamptons. Highlights included the announcements of two separate grants created by the SWCRF in collaboration with the Kate McGarrigle Foundation and the Ann Liguori Foundation for research in sarcoma and ovarian cancer, respectively.  Ms. Liguori presented a $15,000 check to SWCRF Founder and CEO Samuel Waxman, M.D. during the announcement of their joint grant. Dr. Waxman then delivered an overview of the new SWCRF Partnership for Aging and Cancer Research, leading into the science auction led by auctioneer Lucas Hunt.

During the exciting live auction, Mr. Wainwright joined Mr. Hunt on the stage to announce his donation of a private meet-and-greet with him and the opportunity for the top bidder to enjoy at home for a month the Steinway piano he played during his performance at the event. The experience drew the evening’s highest bid of $20,000.

 

A Hamptons Happening was hosted by CBS 2 News anchor Chris Wragge and honored the achievements and charitable contributions of high-profile professionals from a wide range of industries: Glenn Myles, Chairman and CEO of First Wall Street Capital; Bobbie Lloyd, Chief Baking Officer of Magnolia Bakery; Shep Gordon, Talent Manager, Hollywood Film Agent, Producer and Author; Gabriel Kreuther, Owner and Executive Chef of Gabriel Kreuther Restaurant, a Michelin Star recipient, and Relais & Chateaux restaurant; and Margaret Hayes, President and CEO of Fashion Group International.
