Guest lobbed $10,000 and $20,000 bids at auctioneer Lucas Hunt between quaffs of Moet at the 13th annual “A Hamptons Happening” last weekend.

Following the auction, the event, which raises funds for the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation, saw performances by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright and recording artist Sophie Beem, apparent protégé of Beyoncé.

The party took place under a tent on the Bridgehampton lawn of Maria and Kenneth Fishel. Guards armed with automatic weapons patrolled the outskirts of the event — now unfortunately a common sight in the Hamptons.

Notable attendees included: Lori Stokes, Sharon Wilkes Kinberg and Robert Kinberg, Sybil and David Yurman, Elin and Michael Nierenberg, Maria and Kenneth Fishel, Sandy and Marc Taub, Pamela Morgan, Norena Barbella, Laurie Schaffran, James Frankel, Lewis A. Rubin, Gary Jacob, Bettina and Spencer Waxman, Julie and Scott Waxman, Ann Liguori, Scott Vallery, Bobbie Lloyd, Mark Petracca, Shep Gordon, Margaret Hayes, Gabriel Kreuther, Marion Waxman, Samuel Waxman, M.D., William T. Sullivan, Cesar Ricci, Karen Amster-Young, Chris Arlotta, Jake Croman, Erica Linden-Fineberg, Jacob Frisch, Jessica Mackin-Cipro, Jennifer Saraf Myles, Glenn Myles, Sarah and Chris Wragge, Elle Winter and Jake Taub.

 

Sponsors and event partners included: AmTrust Title, Hamptons Magazine, Media Sponsor, The Independent, Newspaper Partner, Keith’s Nervous Breakdown Margarita Mix, Pottery Barn Southampton, and Williams-Sonoma Bridgehampton.
