Festive in Flip Flops 2  -  Hamptons Summer Bash

On a night when the Hamptons were crammed with special events, the American Cancer Society drew a capacity crowd to the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club for the second Festive in Flip Flops. Guests included Sponsors Joe Abruzzese, President, Sales, Discovery Networks; Bill Koenigsberg, Founder and CEO of Horizon Media, and his wife Jessica and David Levy, President of Turner Broadcasting and his wife Nikki.  Also celebrating were Susan Lucci and Helmut Huber, Boomer and Cheryl Esiason, B. Smith with her husband Dan Gasby and last year’s host Mark Feuerstein with his wife Dana Klein.  

Stacy London, the host and star of TLC’s What Not to Wear, proved to be charming as well as fast on her feet.  Later in the evening, she offered her spiked high heels for auction, which resulted in a bidding war between fashionistas.

Don Distasio, Eastern division President of ACS told how in the past year the Society has help Long Islanders.  It “provided free service to over 3500 patients and their care givers and offered nearly 1000 rides to and from cancer treatments.” He concluded, “Even as I look around at this beautiful site in this beautiful location, I am reminded that cancer does not take the summer off and neither can we.”

Sherri Abruzzese, the returning Chair, asked everyone who had a loved one or family member affected by cancer to stand and remain standing. Then, she asked those who had a friend or someone they knew affected by cancer to stand.  Point proved.  Everyone was standing.

Guests included Silver Sponsors, Mary and Michael Levine, Ricky Passarelli and Joseph Smith, owners of Bobby Van’s restaurant and their wives Deena and Maria.  Joining them were Kathy Disastio, Joni and Christopher Fischer, who hosted a kick-off party in their East Hampton store June 30th.  Committee members present included Junior Chairs: Melissa Abruzzese and Christy Birnbaum. Marcy and Jordan Czeizler, Ilene and Henry Gayer, Sara and Mark Lewis and Gail Muszynski.

Robbins-Wolfe catered the three-course dinner, proving that healthy food can be tasty. Flip Flop Wines donated the red and white spirits.  When guests weren’t dancing to Peat Moss and the Fertilizers, they wandered down to the beach to toast marshmallows in one of two barbeque pits.
