When addressing the crowd and thanking attendees for coming to celebrate everyone's favorite season with Hamptons.com, Publisher Joe Kazickas
spoke about one of the website's unique features. "Our cameras bring the Hamptons to the rest of the world in a very visceral live way, so hopefully when you do visit our website, you'll take a minute or two to click on the cameras and see what's going on out in the Hamptons," he shared.
As party-goers chatted with old friends and made a few new acquaintances, Unity Event Productions entertained the crowd with tunes.
