2012 Best Buddies Hamptons Gala: viva la France!  Raises $250,000 For Best Buddies International

Presented by Las Vegas Sands Corp
.

 

Watermill, NY - August 12, 2012 – 200 people attended the 2012 Best Buddies Hamptons Gala: Viva la France! at the Watermill home of Anne Hearst McInerney and Jay McInerney on Saturday, August 11. The Gala, which was presented by Las Vegas Sands Corp, raised $250,000 Best Buddies International. Best Buddies is a vibrant organization founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The McInerneys and Alina and Anthony Kennedy Shriver served as Co-Chairs of the French-themed Gala, which drew out many New York and Hamptons notables, including: Debbie Bancroft, Haley & Jason Binn, Pandora Duke Biddle & Yves Hentic, Nate Berkus, Donny Deutsch, Jonathan Farkas, Joanna Goldenstein, Randy Harris, R. Couri Hay, Kathy and Rick Hilton, Amanda R. Hearst, Penny & Gerry Klingman, Ambassador John and Sharon Handler Loeb, Katie Lee, Alison Mazzola, Patrick McMullan, Katherine Nicholls, Tatiana & Campion Platt, LaCary Sharpe, Jean & Martin Shafiroff, James Signorelli, Atissa Tadjadod, Nicole Miller & Kim Taipale, Lydia & Rudy Touzet, Tracy Stern and Richard Ziegelasch. The Shrivers’ children Eunice, Francesca, Carolina and Joey also attended the event.

The evening included a lively cocktail hour; a gourmet dinner featuring sea bass, chicken, and vegetable lasagna; and a lively auction led by Benjamin Doller of Sotheby’s, which included fabulous items such as tickets to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, a week in beautiful St. Remy de Provence, and an Azamara Cruises European Voyage.

Highlights of the evening included a moving speech by Buddy Ambassador Mollie Noble, who received a standing ovation after discussing the powerful impact Best Buddies has had on her life. Her speech also encouraged Gala guests to “Sponsor a Buddy,” raising $28,000 for the organization’s annual Leadership Conference.

The Stingers also brought the crowd to its feet, thanks to a vivacious performance. Many Gala attendees danced the night away to their party hits, especially once Noble and Shriver encouraged everyone to join them on the dance floor.

“What an unreal night of support for and energy towards our movement for the full inclusion of all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” said Shriver. “The highlight of the evening was Mollie Noble sharing with all of us her life-long dreams of respect and acceptance. I'm beyond grateful to the McInerneys for their unparalleled generosity and kindness.”

Sponsors of the Gala included presenting sponsor The Las Vegas Sands Corp., as well as Hearst Corporation, Marc Leder, Tatiana & Campion Platt, Morgan Stanley, FIJI Water, Patron, Getty Images, Niche Media/Hamptons Magazine and Audi.
