Southampton - On Saturday, April 21, Spring Fling, the Parrish Art Museum's annual community party and fundraiser took place - and it was one rockin' party.

This year's rite of spring, once again chaired by Susan Davis and Nancy Hardy, featured a live band by Todd Barrie Music that kept the dance floor pumping all night. Glacier Potato Vodka martinis, fine wines from Niche Import Co., and Southampton Publick House ales from an open bar fueled the evening and there was no end of delectable hors d'oeuvres donated by Sant Ambroeus, along with the open bar.

For those not into the dancing and schmoozing that is a big part of this event there was ample opportunity for a little shopping with a huge silent auction of luxury items, including designer accessories and a great selection of merchandise and services from the Hamptons community. Auction items included a cocktail party for 100 guests from Michael Mosolino and The Deli Counter; golf at The Bridgehampton Club and National Golf Links of America; VIP tent passes to the 2012 Hampton Classic Horse Show; home accessories from Mackenzie Childs, Hildreth's, and Baccarat; handbags from Brahmin and Isaac Mizrahi; designer jewelry; and certificates from Water Mill Cupcake, Canal Café, Bay Street Theatre, and Hampton Jitney, among others.

Among the revelers many sporting bright spring colors were Nancy Hardy and Dennis Baldwin, Jeanine Edington, Ken and Ivy Dressler, Jeannette Hecktoen and Neil Slaughter, Richard Timmin, Annie Plumb, Village Trustee Nancy McGann, Museum Executive Director Terrie Sultan and Christopher French, Jacalyn Worth, Shane Gritzinger and Owain Moore, Jack McClement, Dawn Watson and Fred Thiele, Steve Babinski and Linn Turegamo, Jeannie Johnson, Susie Wagner, Nancy Puig, Will Huston, actors Michael Dougherty and Emanuel Sylvano, Peter and Jennifer Grelisch, Joan Macri and Paul Anthony, and hundreds more.
