The Independent has been to its fair share of parties over the past 20 years. We've put together a photo exhibit which documents some of the most prominent faces over the years at a variety of Hampton affairs.

The exhibit, which features photography by Jenna Mackin, James J. Mackin, Jan Mackin, Ben Sneed, Peggy Stankevich and myself, will feature shots that we've taken since 1993 when our first issue was published. Take a trip down memory lane while viewing photos of Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel attending the Mens Lives premier at Bay Street Theatre in 1993 or James Franco in 2010 attending the Hamptons International Film Festival. See Peter Jennings give bunny ears in 1996 or Bruce and Kris Jenner pre-"Keeping Up With The Kardashians" in 2001. We will exhibit over 20 photos we believe represent the past two decades of Hampton events. If it was worth shooting, Indy was there.

The reception will not only celebrate 20 years of photos, but will also feature an afternoon tea party hosted by Hampton Daze Magazine and Wizard Of Spa. Guests will enjoy tea by Chambre De Sucre, specialty cocktails, wine, hors d'oeuvres, cupcakes, gift bags, a red carpet and more.

A 50/50 raffle will take place to support Walk To Defeat ALS, the ALS Association's annual walk to fight Lou Gehrig's Disease. Funds raised will support "Team Lenz," which is walking in honor of family member John Lenz who passed away in 2012 after a six year battle with Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The event takes place Saturday from 3 to 6 PM at the Independent's Office in the Red Horse Plaza (Suite 16) in East Hampton. The first 75 guests to RSVP will receive a complimentary gift bag with special gifts from Me!Bath, Chambre De Sucre and more. RSVP@HamptonDaze.com.
