Under a spectacular tent on the 15-acre Bridgehampton estate of Maria and Kenneth Fishel, Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) will present its 13th annual A Hamptons Happening Benefit, which will once again feature tastings from some of the top chefs and restaurants of New York City and the Hamptons. Taking place on Saturday, August 5 from 6:30 to 10 p.m., this sensational night will also include performances by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright and rising star Sophie Beem.

"Our 13th annual A Hamptons Happening promises to be our best and most exciting benefit yet," said event founding chair Marion N. Waxman. "We have Michelin star chefs, fantastic honorees from diverse industries and extraordinary performances by Rufus Wainwright and Sophie Beem, a protégé of Beyonce."

CBS 2 News anchor Chris Wragge will host the soiree, which will honor Glenn Myles, Chairman and CEO of First Wall Street Capital; Bobbie Lloyd, Chief Baking Officer of Magnolia Bakery; Shep Gordon, Talent Manager, Hollywood Film Agent, Producer and Author; Gabriel Kreuther, Owner and Executive Chef of Gabriel Kreuther Restaurant, a Michelin Star recipient and Relais & Chateux restaurant; and Margaret Hayes, President and CEO of Fashion Group International.

This is one of the most awaited and popular events in the Hamptons, usually drawing about 500 guests. There will be both live and silent auctions, along with some of New York's finest cuisine. Performers from The National Circus Project will also be returning this year.

"It will truly be a special evening supporting the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation's mission to discover a cure for cancer," added Waxman.

The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to curing and preventing cancer. Their mission is to "eradicate cancer by funding cutting-edge research that identifies and corrects abnormal gene function that causes cancer and develops minimally toxic treatments for patients."

Tickets to A Hamptons Happening Benefit start at $425 for individual tickets and $200 for guests under 30.

The benefit will be held at 900 Lumber Lane in Bridgehampton. For more information, call 212-867-4502 or visit www.waxmancancer.org.
