Box Art Auction

Over 80 of the finest artists on Long Island's East End are again creating memorable art boxes that will be auctioned to benefit the East End Hospice. The Box Art Auction benefits residents of the Town of East Hampton communities on Saturday from 4:30 to 7 PM. The event will be held at Ross School Lower Campus.

Among the artists are such prominent names as Connie Fox, April Gornik, Christa Maiwald, Fulvio Massi, Randall Rosenthal, Michelle Stuart, and Hans van de Bovenkamp. Admission is $75 and includes wine and hors d'oeuvres.


Southampton Animal Shelter

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation will host its 6th Annual SASF Benefit at the Boardy Barn in Hampton Bays, on Saturday from 6 to 10 PM. Dinner will consist of a generously provided buffet of sumptuous food from local restaurants and shops. Drinks can be purchased at a "discount" cash bar and music by the Second Shift will rock the place all night. In addition there will be a silent auction, Chinese auction, 50/50 Raffle and door prizes. Guests are asked to please bring a donation of dog or cat food and treats for the shelter's Pet Food Pantry.

Proceeds will help to support the shelter's Mobile & In House Spay/Neuter Clinics and new Wellness Clinic in order to reduce the population of homeless animals and provide low cost spay/neuter services to under served areas in need. The shelter's goal is to promote and nourish the bond between people and animals through adoption, education and community outreach.

Tickets are $35 in advance, and $40 at the door. Tickets may be purchased online at or at the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation.

East End Special Players

On September 19, a benefit reception and auction for the East End Special Players will take place at the home of Marie Eve and Michel Berty at 44 Sayres Path in Wainscott. Every two years the Players reach out to the community for financial support. Like arts groups everywhere keeping the doors open is difficult but the East End Special Players, a troupe of actors with developmental challenges, perseveres with dramatic brio. Tickets are $75 on sale via the EESP website:
