New York, NY, July 13, 2015 – Leaders from the worlds of cuisine, business and fashion came together in support of cutting-edge cancer research at the eleventh annual A Hamptons Happening fundraiser on July 11 to benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF).

 

Held at the beautiful Bridgehampton estate of Maria and Kenneth Fishel, the popular event was bigger than ever. Hosted for the fourth consecutive year by WCBS-TV news anchor Chris Wragge, the benefit honored business leaders Marc J. Leder, co-CEO of Sun Capital Partners, Inc. and Bobby Zarin, Chairman of Zarin Fabrics and real estate developer. American luxury fashion house St. John was the Fashion Honoree. 

 

The event broke previous fundraising records in its 11-year history, bringing in more than $500,000 with over $100,000 raised going to a thyroid cancer research grant established by Bobby Zarin, a thyroid cancer survivor, with his wife Jill Zarin in partnership with the SWCRF.

 

The benefit showcased beautiful artwork for purchase or on auction to raise funds for research. Domingo Zapata’s striking acrylic painting on canvas Thrill of Danger was offered for bid in the event’s online auction hosted on Charitybuzz. Hamptons artist Daniel Pollera presented his oil painting symbolizing the SWCRF’s mission to cure cancer “A Path to a Cure,” which benefits the SWCRF through proceeds from poster sales. Finally, American Expressionist Harold Garde, represented by ArtPort, presented 16 pieces from his SIGHTINGS collection of abstracted landscapes for sale.

The evening’s awards ceremony was hosted by Chris Wragge, A Hamptons Happening founding co-chair Laurie Schaffran and SWCRF founder and CEO Samuel Waxman, M.D., who presented SWCRF awards to honorees Marc J. Leder and Bobby Zarin.  Leta Saveikis, St. John’s Vice President of Retail – Boutiques, accepted the SWCRF Fashion Icon honoree award on behalf of St. John.  Closing the show on a rousing note was country music artist Jon Stone of the duo American Young who surprised his friend Bobby Zarin with a performance of his Grammy-nominated hit song “Love is War” in tribute to their friendship.

 

The live auction conducted by Grandstand Sports offered luxurious items and experiences including dinner for ten prepared by Egidiana Maccioni, mother of Mauro Maccioni, co-owner of the Le Cirque Restaurant Group, a pair of his and her electric bikes by Polaris eBikes, and a baseball autographed by the three New York Yankees Perfect Game pitchers David Cone, Don Larsen and David Wells.  The online auction hosted on Charitybuzz offered a chance to bid on special experiences such as a virtual matchmaking session with Patti Stanger, star of Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker.”

 

A Hamptons Happening was chaired by event co-founders Marion Waxman and Laurie Schaffran as well as Michael Trokel and Pamela Morgan. Additional chairpersons included Jessica Cohen as auction chair, Kara Council as marketing chair, Erica Fineberg as journal chair, Sarah Sarpolis as PR and social media chair and Christine Silverstein as chefs chair.

 

The A Hamptons Happening committee included Karen Amster-Young, Chris Arlotta, Tammy Caress,  Maria Fishel, Kenneth Fishel, Jennifer Gould Keil, Adrienne Kantor, Robert Kantor, Marcia Lavipour, Jessica Mackin, Mario Pecoraro, Edward Sadovnik, Jamie Safier, Bettina Waxman, Spencer Waxman and Jill Zarin.
