On Friday, June 9, Hamptons.com invited a few hundred of our closest friends to Union Cantina in Southampton to celebrate the start of summer during our annual Connections & Cocktails party.

Presented by Bridgehampton National Bank, with support from the Bill Williams
Team, Security Dodge, and Cruz Brothers Construction, partygoers reveled in the gloriously beautiful weather, noshed on tasty treats from Union Cantina, sipped on specialty cocktails featuring Keith's Nervous Breakdown Ultra-Premium Cocktail Mixers, rehydrated with ReThink Water, and mingled with old and new friends.
Attendees were drawn to a special raffle, which featured exciting items from Peter Barylski Landscapes Inc., Stephen Talkhouse, Hamptons Handpoured, Southampton Publick House, Hampton Luxury Liner, Centro Trattoria & Bar, Hampton Coffee Company, Cain & Austin, Toro Tapas & Tequila Restaurant of Patchogue, Southampton Social Club, Baron's Cove, and Union Cantina Restaurant. Over 100 tickets were sold, and all proceeds from the raffle were donated to Southampton Hospital.
We just had to bring back our absolute favorite music gurus, AGES Events DJ Entertainment, who provided the evening's tunes, and as per usual, their photobooth was in high demand all night long.
Bridgehampton National Bank Vice President Stan Glinka was on hand to accept a generous $10,000 donation from Hamptons.com Publisher Joe Kazickas
on behalf of the Kazickas Family Foundation, in support of All for the East End (AFTEE).
