On Saturday, June 17, join co-hosts Tracy Anderson and Margaret Russell and hosts luxury interior design magazine Galerie Founder and Editorial Director Lisa Cohen and husband, President & CEO of Hudson News, James Cohen for School's Out, Hetrick-Martin Institute's (HMI) - the nation's oldest and largest LGBTQ youth service organization - Hamptons summer benefit.

"No one should ever live their life in fear of being themselves. No one has any right to tell people who they can and cannot love," Anderson explained. "I will work as hard as I can to support organizations like Hetrick-Martin Institute and I'm honored to be hosting this year's School's Out in East Hampton on June 17th!"

The festive affair will begin at 5 p.m. with a cocktail reception at the stunning seaside home of Lisa and James Cohen in East Hampton featuring wines from Wölffer Estate Vineyard and signature sips from Ketel One Vodka. The Cohens and Galerie Magazine, along with honorary co-hosts Martha Stewart and Rosanna Scotto, will host an intimate dinner, with dishes inspired by Stewart's favorites, after the cocktail party.

"As a TV journalist, I have covered the important work at HMI for many years," noted Scotto. "I have talked to young people who were so grateful that HMI embraced them in a safe supportive community and gave them the opportunity to live the life they always wanted."

Bobby Graham, Adam Morris, and Alfredo Paredes are co-hosting the beloved soiree, with Benjamin Dixon, Malcolm James Kutner, and Ward Williams as co-chairs.

"School's Out has become a tradition as the Hamptons' premiere event," shared Thomas Krever, Chief Executive Officer of HMI. "Not only is it one of the summer's most notable kickoff parties, but this fundraiser is so important to HMI because it provides the financial security that will enable us to provide our vital services throughout the summer months - when young people are often lacking in critical support."

HMI is a leading professional provider of social support and programming for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning (LGBTQ) youth, serving youth members who range in age from 13 to 24. Once school has let out, many HMI youth are cut off from vital resources that they depend on. Proceeds from School's Out will ensure that HMI has the funding to remain open to provide the youth with hot meals and life-saving vital services.

"As a proud board member of HMI it is my honor to open my home for HMI's annual Hamptons' event," added Lisa Cohen. "All young people deserve the opportunity to succeed and it is so inspiring to me that HMI creates that opportunity for so many thousands of LGBTQ youth."

Tickets to the Cocktail Reception begin at $375 and tickets to the dinner are $1,500.
