Group for the East End 40th Anniversary Benefit + Auction

Group for the East EndOn your mark, get set for the beginning of sizzling summer soirees in the Hamptons.  Group for the East End’s 40th Anniversary Benefit + Auction will take place on Saturday, June 23 from 6:00 to 11:00 p.m at Wölffer Estate Vineyard in Sagaponack, NY. Come join us in celebrating the verdant and vivacious natural beauty of the East End with special guests Alec Baldwin and Billy Joel.  The party will take place under stunning Sperry Tents decorated by Lilee Fell Flowers on the rolling fields of the Wölffer Estate Vineyard. Cocktails and silent auction kick off at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner at 7:30 pm with renowned caterer Brent Newsom, a live auction, and dancing to beats provided by DJ Tom Finn.

Our friend and iconic designer Nicole Miller is once again chairing this festive event, and we shopped her gorgeous collection to find these wonderfully ruched and pleated dresses that will sing and swing all summer long. We just love the rich blue shade of the One-Shoulder Cotton Metal Dress, or go for these stunning whites – either long or short.  All you need to complete the look is a fabulous pair of earrings and a tawny tan, and you’re ready to hit the scene.
