Interior Designers Scott Sanders and Peter Wilson are hosting Hetrick-Martin Institute's (HMI) 15th Anniversary School's Out cocktail party fundraiser on Saturday, June 7, 2014, at their East Hampton home. All proceeds from the event will benefit HMI, home of the Harvey Milk High School.

Over 500 guests are expected to attend the summer kickoff party, which is co-chaired by Bobby Graham of InStyle Magazine, Alfredo Paredes of Ralph Lauren, Ward Williams of Momentum Worldwide and Brendan Monaghan, Vice President of Luxury at The New York Times and Publisher of T Magazine. This year's Honorary Chair is Andy Cohen, host of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live and EVP of Development and Talent for Bravo.

"School's Out has become a tradition as the Hamptons' premiere event at the start of every summer. This fundraiser is so important to HMI because it enables us to provide our vital services throughout the summer months to the most vulnerable youth in New York City," said Thomas Krever, Executive Director of HMI.

During the evening, guests will have the opportunity to speak with HMI youth, who will directly benefit from their donations. This summer, HMI anticipates serving over 3,000 young people by providing various programming and services. In 2013, the organization raised over $225,000, and reached an impressive 4,000 people, of which, 20 percent identified as being homeless.

This marks the ninth year that Scott and Peter will host the event, which they describe as a delightful honor. "We place a high value on supporting young people in their choice of lifestyle, education and creative pursuit through the important work of Hetrick-Martin," the duo said.

HMI is a leading professional provider of support for at risk LGBTQ and serves youth ages 12 to 24 from over 300 districts throughout New York City and surrounding areas.

Tickets for School's Out begin at $375. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.hmi.org.
