On Saturday, March 7th, the Sag Harbor based not-for-profit is hosting the Fourth Annual Skate-A-Thon and Bake Sale at Buckskill Winter Club. The benefit kicks off with a puck throw from 3:30 to 3:35 p.m., followed by a Figure Skating Recital by Coaches and Participating Kids from 3:45 to 5 p.m. Skate-A-Thon Skaters take the ice from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m., and then the ice opens for a public skate from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. The evening caps off with a Hockey Game (pre-registration is required) from 8 to 9:30 p.m.

"Katy was a good friend of Annabel and Harriet DeGroot, and their family kindly puts on the event at Buckskill each year in support of Katy's Courage and in her memory," expressed Collins. "We always have a great turn out and it's a ton of fun for everyone, all for a great cause."

Katy's Courage was founded in memory of Katy Stewart, an inspirational 12-year-old who passed away from a rare form of pediatric liver cancer. The organization is dedicated to supporting education, children's bereavement counseling, and pediatric cancer research.

Registration is $25 per person.

Buckskill Winter Club is located at 178 Buckskill Road in East Hampton. For more information, visit katyscourage.org.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didnít change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
