"For nearly a decade, I've witnessed the children on the East End—including my own daughter—delight in and benefit from the rich educational offerings at the Museum throughout the year," said Spring Fling co-chair Laura Wynne. "I am honored to be a part of this important event, and look forward to endless possibilities for art education at the Parrish for the entire community."

On Saturday, April 25th, the Parrish Art Museum is holding their annual Spring Fling community celebration, fundraiser, and networking event at the Museum. From 7:30 to 11 p.m., East Enders are invited to join the Museum for lively music from Noiz Entertainment, an art scavenger hunt in the galleries, hors d'oeuvre and an open bar featuring wine and spirits from Niche Import Co. and Alpha Noble Vodka., and a silent auction, which supports the Parrish's year-round educational programs for children.

This year's auction will feature items donated by the East End business and professional community, including VIP tickets to "Live with Kelly and Michael;" golf outings at the Atlantic Golf Club, The Bridgehampton Club, and The Bridge; two tickets to "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical;" VIP passes to the Hampton Classic Horse Show; a dinner for six catered by Seasons of Southampton at the winning bidder's home; and several other exciting gifts from Hamptons restaurants, shops, and spas.

Founded in the 1990s, the Spring Fling benefit now raises over $100,000 yearly for the Parrish Art Museum's Education Department. Since the opening of the new Herzog & de Meuron building in Water Mill, Parrish Art has served 4,500 families through 13 events, and presented 215 school tours, 132 open studios, 56 after school art workshops, and 27 weeks of art camps. Spring Fling is made possible, in part, by support from Mr. and Mrs. Timothy G. Davis, Maryanne Horwath and Michael Shaheen, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, Brown Harris Stevens, Chase, Christine Curiale, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Nancy Hardy and Dennis Baldwin, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Arthur L. Loeb and Nest Seekers International.

Tickets are $200 for non-members and $150 for members. All tickets purchased after Monday, April 20th are $225.

Parrish Art Musuem is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, call 631-283-2118 x150 or visit parrishart.org.
