Justin Adams at Boo-Hooray Post-Season Rental

Saturday, October 7 at 4:00 PM
Boo-Hooray Post-Season Rental, 805 Montauk Hwy, Montauk

JUSTIN ADAMS – RECENT WORKS
Justin Adams Was Promised Waves. Justin Adams is very serious about surfing. Tin Oneda invited Justin to Montauk with promises of the best waves ever. Well: that sort of happened but now the waves are gone and Justin is here. What shall he do? Well: He should paint. He is really good at painting. And very serious about it. In fact, one of his canvases was used as the poster for Tin’s latest surf movie ‘Free Jazz Vein’. We think the painting is fantastic, and Justin has stacks of drawings with him. They are great. So now Justin is here in Montauk, he is making paintings and next Saturday we will show them at the Boo-Hooray Summer Rental which now, naturally, is the Boo-Hooray Post-Season Rental. Come down next Saturday: There will be free jazz art, free jazz pizza and free jazz music. Opening Saturday October 7th 4-7 at Boo-Hooray 805 Montauk Hwy in Scenic Downtown Montauk.

LAVO, 39 E 58th Street, New York

Celebrate Spring was first conceived in 2008 by G. Pennington Egbert III, his sister Missy Egbert Sheehan and their close friend Georgina B. Schaeffer.  The three, whose fathers both lived with Parkinson’s disease, joined together to create the Young New Yorkers for the Fight Against Parkinson’s committee, a group of nearly 100 New Yorkers dedicated to advancing a cure for Parkinson’s.  Each year the committee hosts Celebrate Spring in New York City, which has raised more than $750,000 since its inception.

Rally for Alli

Friday, March 24 from 7 to 10 pm
Stephen Talkhouse, 161 Main St, Amagansett

On August 26, 2016 the Bennett family of East Hampton was dealt with a second blow when their oldest daugher, 41 year old Allison Duchemin, was their second daughter in less than 5 years to be diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Allison’s sister, Cheryl, was diagnosed with the same form of Breast Cancer slightly over 4 years prior; her offical diagnosis is HER – 2 Positive Invasive Ductal Carcinoma.

Treatment consisted of traveling to Sloan Kettering Cancer Center once a week for the past 5 months for chemotheraphy treatment, and will continue to go every three weeks for the next year for Estrogen Therapy. Her first surgery was on February 20, 2017 at Memorial Sloan Kettering NYC where she had to undergo a double mastectomy with the start of reconstruction. Allison is a hardworking individual for the Town of East Hampton and will now be out of work for 4 weeks. Following surgery, she will have 5-6 weeks of radation 5 days a week in Commack. Finally, in 4-5 months she will have Reconstruction surgery requiring a 5 night hospital stay and 6 weeks out of work.

One could only imagine the travel expenses and finanical burden this has on a family; this has been a long road for Allison, her boyfriend Walter, and her three children (Sean, Riley, and Taylor) and it is not over yet. Anything our wonderful community could do to lighten the burden would be more than appreciated.

Come join us March 24, 2017 from 7pm-10pm at the Stephen Talkhouse to support Allison and her family. Stop on by for a great night of live music from Little Head Thinks and The Dog Watchers, raffles, food and much more!

Casino Night at Ronald McDonald House

Friday, March 10 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm
1 Wall Street Court

We would like to invite you to a most memorable evening with Children’s Happy Faces Foundation at our signature Casino Night. Location will again be at our fine host Peter Vulai’s classic first-rate establishment Fino Wall Street Ristorante.

This year’s fun includes a professional casino set-up with the return of a “Goldman Special” Texas Hold’em Tournament, Blackjack tables, Roulette Wheel plus a Craps table with the chance to win great prizes, raffles, silent and live auctions. The event opens at 6:30pm with fine Fino Italian pass-around feast, a LIVE Jazz Quartet, chair massages provided by Oasis Day Spa, and Fur Show by “Not Just Mink.”

Our previous events held at Fino’s continue to be the talk around town and why wouldn’t they be, especially when one can do good even while we enjoy a casino atmosphere, feast on scrumptious Italian food on Wall St., drink fine wine while listening to Live Jazz and just enjoying the overall scenery. We therefore return with a vengeance and the desire to yet again please our guests while we make money for the House.

Please do not miss out on the fun!!! We have limited space and do expect an early sell-out, so we encourage you to act timely and reserve your tickets. Corporate sponsorships are always welcomed with creative exposure opportunities available.
