The 14th Annual Hamptons Happening benefiting the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) will return to the estate of Maria and Kenneth Fishel in Bridgehampton on Saturday, July 14.

"We enjoy hosting the Annual Hamptons Happening on our Bridgehampton estate, and are honored to have the ability to share our home," Maria Fishel shared. "We're fortunate enough to have an expansive amount of acres that we can donate."

The annual fête features tastings from some of the top chefs and restaurants in New York City and the Hamptons. This year's soiree will showcase irresistible bites and sips from Five Senses Catering, Eataly, Clarkson Avenue Crumb Cake Co., Centro Trattoria & Bar, The Golden Pear Cafe, Grace & Grit, Montauk Hard Label Whiskey, Opa! on the Go, The Seafood Shop, Saaz, Magnolia Bakery, Insatiable Eats, South Fork Bakery, and more. Additionally, there will be silent and live auctions, and unbelievable performances from The National Circus Project stars.

CBS 2 News anchor Chris Wragge will once again host the benefit, which will celebrate Chef Matt Lambert, Executive Chef & Co-owner of The Musket Room, Michelin Star Recipient; Ramy Brook Sharp, Founder & Creative Director of Ramy Brook; and Joe Farrell, Founder & President of Farrell Building Company.

Founded by the renowned oncologist Samuel Waxman, M.D., SWCRF is committed to discovering cures for cancer through reprogramming cancer cells. SWCRF supports collaborative cross-institutional studies that detect and fix the abnormal gene function that causes cancer and since 1976, the organization has bestowed almost $100 million to over 200 researchers worldwide.

"It has been very satisfying raising money to assist in the quest for cures for cancer. One in three people will be affected by the disease in their lifetime," Fishel noted. "It's a disease that is pervasive and has the ability to hurt many if we don't get a hold of it."

Chris Arlotta, Ellen Antonucci, Jordan Brail, Maria Fishel, Barbara Lambert, Jessica Mackin, Laurie Schaffran, Jake Taub, and Erin Woudsma will serve as Hamptons Happening committee members, with Event Co-Founder Marion N. Waxman, Sponsorship Chair Karen Amster-Young and Journal Chair Erica Linden-Fineberg.

"The Hamptons is a place where everyone is receptive to the idea of charitable giving," Fishel added.

The 14th Annual Hamptons Happening will start with a VIP experience at 6 p.m., followed by general admission at 6:30 p.m.

A VIP ticket is $1,000, an individual ticket is $425, and a millennial ticket (35 & under) is $200.

The Fishel estate is located at 900 Lumber Lane in Bridgehampton. For more information, visit www.waxmancancer.org.
