On Saturday, June 11th, Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI) supporters are invited to join the nation's oldest and largest LGBTQ youth service organization during HMI's 18th Annual School's Out cocktail party fundraiser.

For the second year in a row, the benefit will take place at the East Hampton home of luxury interior design magazine GALERIE Founder and Editorial Director, Lisa Cohen and her husband James Cohen, CEO of Hudson Media. From 6 to 8:30 p.m., attendees will enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and the chance to celebrate HMI's recent accomplishments.

"It has been my honor to dedicate our home, for this event, and a portion of proceeds from my new magazine, GALERIE, to assist the amazingly resilient youth of Hetrick-Martin, as well as the exciting outreach work they are doing to share HMI's mission with the world," explained Lisa Cohen.

Bobby Graham of GQ, Ward Williams, Creative Director of MotherNY, and interior designer Malcolm James Kutner will serve as this year's Event Co-Chairs, with Alfredo Paredes, Peter Wilson and Scott Sanders as Event Co-Hosts. LGBT civil rights advocate and trailblazer, Edie Windsor, is the 2016 Honorary Host.

"School's Out has become a tradition as the Hamptons' premiere event," noted 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."

For the first time ever at School's Out, HMI will present The Life-Saver Project Auction, featuring original works of art by internationally acclaimed artists including Ralph Lauren Home, Jonathan Adler, Matt Albiani, Serena Dugan, Kerry Irvine, Laura Kaufman, Joseph La Piana, Ashley Longshore, Donald Robertson, Gregory Siff, and Mickalene Thomas. Each masterpiece was made exclusively for the fundraiser, and attendees can support HMI by bidding on the works during the silent auction.

All proceeds from the benefit will support HMI's mission of fostering healthy youth development. The organization provides a safe and supportive environment in which lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth between the ages of 13 and 24 can achieve their full potential.

Tickets begin at $375.

School's Out will take place at 29 West End Road in East Hampton. For more information, visit www.hmi.org.
