"The Pleasurists," William Quigley and Ben Moon, are joining forces for their second annual "Sip for the Soldiers." The benefit show will debut during "Mash-Up Society" on Friday, July 11, 2014, at Quigley's East Hampton studio. At last year's party, the pair was able to sell their famous Donald Trump portrait to Trump himself. Having achieved much success as a result, the pair donated $10,000 to Guild Hall in East Hampton. For this year's show, William Quigley painted portraits of Mick Jagger and Ethan Hawke. He hopes his experience with Trump will help to create a similar experience with "The Rolling Stones" lead singer and the actor.

The incredible duo met in 2002. Since their meeting, they have gained considerable creative direction from one another. "Ben's one of the purest talents and brilliant minds I've met," said Quigley. "He can do everything. And well. Really well. You should hear him play guitar."

Their new exhibit will display Ben Moon's new series "Before/After," as well as his musical visual work, "Roklyfe." Local painter Alex George McCue's work will also be showcased as part of "Sip for the Soldiers." The opening night reception will include performances by DJ Monikkr and Bella Saona.

The pair's love of art and influence in the local community will benefit them in their mission to bring awareness, attention, and respect to those in the armed forces. The pair has worked with Chris Carney, Peter Honerkamp, and Nick Kraus, owners of the Stephen Talkhouse, and Founders of the Wounded Warrior Warrior/Soldier Ride, along with Blue Parrot and Casamigos Tequila.

Between Friday, July 11 and Saturday, July 19, a portion of the proceeds from SkrapperStyle T-shirts, Ben Moon merchandise, Quigley prints and Casamigos Cocktails will be donated to Soldier Ride, a Wounded Warriors event in Amagansett on Saturday, July 19, 2014. The event is intended to help heal emotional, physical and mental wounds of soldiers.

Moon's famed black and white designs are what landed him the opportunity to paint a 1985 Rolls Royce "Silver Spur." The car will debut the night of the event, and at the end of summer it will be auctioned. All of the proceeds from the car's sale will go to Wounded Warriors charity.

Skrapper Studios is located at 62 Newtown Lane East Hampton. For more information, visit www.facebook.com.
