Two Tent Weekend

On Saturday, we attended Hope in the Hamptons for St Jude Children's Research Hospital. The event was held in Water Mill at the Birdsall family property. This was the third annual benefit.
The Birdsall family began hosting this fundraiser in the Hamptons out of gratitude for the treatment of their grandson, at St Jude's Children's Research Hospital. After undergoing 3 1/2 years of cancer treatment starting when he was just two years old, Drew is now cancer free.

Beautiful night for a great cause.

On Sunday afternoon we headed into Sag Harbor for the Big Tent Party for the Cinema
At the end of Long Wharf, outside the tent, a truck from Twin Forks Moving and Storage stood outside with THE SIGN. I have to admit, when I first saw it I got a lump in my throat.
 
If you look on Instagram, there are a bunch of selfies in front of the "SAG" portion of the sign. We love our Sag Harbor Cinema sign!
It was a happy mob scene.
Over 1000 people showed up.
Each one to support rebuilding the heart of main street.

Our paintings in the Art Auction for the Cinema were up at Grenning Gallery all day. 
Both paintings sold above the minimum.
Phew
Fundraising success! 
Thank you SO MUCH for bidding.
