"The Parrish Art Museum
has always been an integral part of our East End community and Spring Fling specifically funds programs for children," said event co-chair Nancy Hardy
. "All of our kids have grown up coming to the Museum on school field trips and have participated in the annual Student Art Exhibition, but the Parrish offers programs and events for all children—from full- time residents to summer visitors."
On Saturday, April 5, the Hamptons Museum is holding their annual Spring Fling community party, fundraiser, and networking event from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. The benefit which raises over $100,000 annually for the Education Department will start a new tradition this year, an art detective scavenger hunt that will lead guests throughout galleries.
It will also include a silent auction filled with goods and services donated by the East End business and professional community. Prize highlights include VIP tickets to "LIVE with Kelly & Michael," a surf board from Island Riders, a skate board from Flying Point Surf Shop, VIP tent passes to the 2014 Hampton Classic Horse Show
, spa treatments from Naturopathica Spa
and John Dillon Salon
, "Beach Glass" beverage glasses, gift certificates for Almond
bar brasserie, 75 Main
and other Hamptons restaurants, handbags from Brahmin
and Eric Javits, and other goodies.
Noiz will provide live music as guests nibble on hors d'oeuvres and sip on specialties from the open bar featuring wine and spirits from Niche Import
Co., Southampton Publick House
, Hamptons H2O, and Alpha Noble Vodka.
Spring Fling will take place at the Museum's new Herzog & de Meuron
building in Water Mill. Tickets are $200, $150 for Members and tickets bought after April 1, are $225.
