The Ellen Hermanson Foundation is celebrating its 20th anniversary during Veinte!, a salsa party hosted by Steven Klein at his Westkill Farm in Bridgehampton. Taking place on Saturday, June 20th from 6:30 till 10 p.m., the evening will feature the Latin sounds of Tito Puente, Jr. and his 10 piece band, who will dazzle guests as they enjoy a buffet dinner provided by caterer Peter Ambrose and the open bar.

Veinte! will be chaired by last year's honoree, Jean Shafiroff. Andy Sabin, an environmentalist, philanthropist and longtime supporter of the Foundation, is this year's honoree.

The Ellen Hermanson Foundation evolved from Ellen's Run, which dates back to 1996. Julie Ratner and Emily Levin founded the organization in memory of their sister, Ellen Hermanson, who died from breast cancer at 42. The foundation has since established Ellen's Well, a psychosocial support service, and the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center of Southampton Hospital.

For the past 20 years, The Ellen Hermanson Foundation has provided women and men on the East End with quality breast health care by remaining committed to their mission "to ensure access to state-of-the-art breast health care and to empower people affected by cancer."

Tickets for Veinte! start at $400 and junior tickets are $175.

Steven Klein's West Kill Farm is located at 819 Lumber Lane in Bridgehampton. For more information, call 212-840-0916 or visit www.ellensrun.org.
