The 12th Annual A Hamptons Happening marked the 40th Anniversary of the founding of the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) by noted oncologist and cancer researcher Samuel Waxman, MD. The benefit, which took place on Saturday, July 9th, 2016 at the residence of Maria and Kenneth Fishel, featured 40 of the top chefs and restaurants in New York City and the Hamptons. The event was hosted by CBS 2 News anchor Chris Wragge and honored Sandra Lee, philanthropist, Emmy winning television personality, New York Times best-selling author and breast cancer survivor; Jayma Cardoso, Founder of the Surf Lodge in Montauk; and Deirdre Quinn, CEO of the luxury fashion company Lafayette 148 New York.

 

Notable attendees included: Dr. Samuel Waxman (SWCRF Founder & CEO), Marion N. Waxman (A Hamptons Happening Founding Co-Chair), Laurie L. Schaffran (A Hamptons Happening Founding Co-Chair), Karen Amster-Young (A Hamptons Happening Co-Chair), Erica Fineberg (A Hamptons Happening Journal Chair), Kenneth Fishel (Event Host), Maria Fishel (Event Host), Bradley Fishel (Event Host), Chris Wragge (WCBS 2 News Anchor), Sandra Lee (Honoree), Jayma Cardoso (Honoree), Deirdre Quinn (Honoree), Fernanda Capobianco (Honorary Lead Chef), Francois Payard (Honorary Lead Chef), Michael Nierenberg (SWCRF Chairman), Chris Arlotta (A Hamptons Happening Benefit Committee Member), Jessica Mackin (A Hamptons Happening Benefit Committee Member), Pamela Morgan (A Hamptons Happening Benefit Committee Member), Sarah Sarpolis (A Hamptons Happening Benefit Committee Member), Jill Zarin (TV Personality & Author) and Ramona Singer (TV Personality), among others.

 

The event was resplendent in floral beauty thanks to Flower Box Wall Gardens, which designed striking installations displayed throughout the venue, most dramatically a gardenlike step-and-repeat that brought a fresh twist to red carpet arrivals. Overall floral décor was provided byDesigns by Mark Masone. Adding fun and wonder to the benefit were costumed performers from the National Circus Project, an arts-in-education program, who posed for photos with guests while balanced on stilts and performed tricks for the crowd. An online fundraiser held byTabooze (www.gettabooze.com), a sugar-free and calorie-free cocktail mixer, raised over $7,000 for A Hamptons Happening in the weeks preceding the event. Tabooze creator Lori Schlakman, a cancer survivor, created the Cocktails for The Cure campaign to partner with the SWCRF in funding research for a cure.

 

SWCRF founder and CEO Dr. Samuel Waxman and Chris Wragge took to the stage to introduce this year’s honorees and host the live auction. Wragge, hosting A Hamptons Happening for the sixth consecutive year, thanked the audience for attending the event and for contributing to the work of the SWCRF. Dr. Waxman provided a brief overview of the Foundation’s funded research programs, emphasizing how this work is made possible by generous contributions from donors. He thanked the participating chefs and restaurants for providing delicious food and beverages for the event, and acknowledged the contributions of the event chair people, committee members and the SWCRF staff.

 

Following the opening remarks, honoree Sandra Lee captivated the audience with a powerful testimonial of her high-profile battle with breast cancer last year. She said she is cancer free and credited the medical team at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York for their excellent treatment of her. She noted that the work of the SWCRF is unique in that it requires funded scientists to share their findings with other researchers in order to advance the development of cancer treatments. Following Sandra’s speech, honorees Jayma Cardoso and Deirdre Quinnwere welcomed to the stage, where Dr. Waxman presented them crystal awards from Orrefors in thanks for their support for this year’s benefit. The awards ceremony was capped by a fun champagne toast to the SWCRF’s fortieth anniversary presented by Champagne Taittinger, the official sparkling wine of A Hamptons Happening. Champagne Taittinger’s brand ambassador, wine expert Chantelle Pabros, led the pouring of champagne into a tower of 200 glasses passed to the audience by Chris Wragge, the Waxmans, Fernanda Capobianco and Francois Payard, among others.

 

Chris Wragge then presided over an exciting live auction that included exclusive items such as an exciting package for two to see the Tony Award-nominated hit show “Hamilton” that included dinner with two cast members and more; a Dominican Republic Getaway package; anUltimate Spa Package at Canyon Ranch; a Cloud Catering & Events packet, featuring a dinner for 8 prepared by a Michelin-starred chef; and a Dinner for 10 By the World Renowned Chef at Rao’s in New York.

 

This year’s A Hamptons Happening was chaired by event Co-Founders Marion Waxman and Laurie Schaffran and Co-Chair Karen Amster-Young.  Additional chairpersons included Erin Jennifer Woudsma as Auction Chair and Erica Linden-Fineberg as Journal Chair. LDV Hospitality was the featured restaurant group at the event. The Honorary Lead Chef Couple was Fernanda Capobianco, founder of Vegan Divas, journalist and cookbook author; and Francois Payard, pastry chef, restaurateur and author. The event once again featured beautiful cabanas for guests to lounge in and silent and live auctions.

 

The annual A Hamptons Happening is among the most eagerly anticipated events of the Hamptons social calendar. Drawing on average 500 guests, the event is held under a 15,000-sq-ft. floored, carpeted and air-conditioned tent on the stunning 15-acre Bridgehampton property of Maria and Kenneth Fishel. The benefit is a scrumptious celebration of New York’s finest cuisine, personally presented by the top chefs of the most celebrated restaurants in New York City and the Hamptons. Guests indulge their appetites for the savory and the sweet, mix and mingle, bid on exciting auction items and dance to today’s hottest tunes, all the while collaborating to fund science’s quest for a cure for cancer.

 

The A Hamptons Happening Committee included Chris Arlotta and Mario Pecoraro, Tammy Caress, Diana Chudnoff, Becca Goldberg, Marcia Lavipour, Jessica Mackin, Pamela Morgan and Michael Trokel, Edward Sadovnik, Sarah Sarpolis, and Bettina and Spencer Waxman. Linda Shapiro of LBS Productions was the event coordinator. Party Up Productions did production design and music was provided by The Surf Lodge’s resident DJ, David Katz.

 

Event Sponsors included AmTrust Title formerly First Nationwide Title, Art Hamptons, Bespoke Real Estate, Champagne Taittinger, Hamptons Magazine, Jaguar Land Rover Southampton, Palm Bay International and The Independent. A Hamptons Happening had a presence at the recent Art Hamptons when Dr. Waxman and Mrs. Waxman served on the event’s host committee, which included A Hamptons Happening hosts Maria and Kenneth Fishel as co-chairs. Williams-Sonoma Bridgehampton was the event’s retail partner.
