SWCRF Campaign For A Cure

By Jessica Mackin

The Independent will be publishing a "A Hamptons Happening" special section inside the newspaper this summer, to be published July 8, in honor of The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation's "A Hamptons Happening" benefit taking place July 11 in Bridgehampton at the home of Maria and Keneth Fishel and family. Proceeds will benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.

This year lead chefs include Mauro Maccioni & The Le Cirque Restaurant Group and John DeLucie of The Lion and Bill's Food & Drink. Marc Leder, co-CEO of Sun Capital Partners, Inc., and Bobby Zarin, Chairman of Zarin Fabrics will be honored.

Founding Chairs Marion Waxman and Laurie Schaffran will again be at the helm with Pamela Morgan and Michael Trokel serving as the event chairs. TV Channel 2 news anchor Chris Wragge will emcee.

The event will be previewed on Thursday, July 2, at the grand opening of ArtHamptons, where the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation and Guild Hall will be partnered as the evening's beneficiaries. Renowned artist Daniel Pollera will unveil his painting, "A Path To The Cure," which he created specifically to benefit SWCRF.

The mission of the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation is to eradicate cancer by funding cutting-edge research that identifies and corrects abnormal gene function that causes cancer and develops minimally toxic treatments for patients.

"A Hamptons Happening" is a highlight of the summer and features amazing food from over 40 NYC and Hamptons restaurants along with live and silent auctions. It is an event not to be missed.

$150 from each ad sold in The Independent's special section will be donated to the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation with quarter page advertisements starting at just $500. Contact The Independent Newspaper at 631-324-2500 to place your ad and show your support for the SWCRF.

Tickets for the July 11 event begin at $350 and $175 for juniors (30 and under). New this year is the opportunity to purchase a beautiful private cabana which will include bottle service and is available for eight to 16 guests. For tickets to the event visit www.waxmancancer.org.
