Hamptons Readies For Annual Foodie Extravaganza for Waxman Charity This Saturday


It’s time once again this Saturday July 9th for the Great Foodie Extravaganza in the Hamptons.

The Hamptons Happening is for the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation. Over two dozen A list restaurants set up shop under the stars to raise money for this worthy cause.

(A lot of celebs show up at this thing. Among others look for actor Richard Kind, and I can’t say who else.) WCBS TV’s star newsman Chris Wragge will be master of ceremonies.

This year’s culinary honoree is Chef Julian Medina, Chef & Owner of Toloache, Tacuba, Coppelia, Kuxe, La Chula, and El Fish Shack. He’ll have all his restaurants there. Plus they’ve got everyone from Barney Greengrass to Magnolia Bakery and Phillippe Chow.

Other honorees include Bess Freedman, CEO of Brown Harris Stevens, Mark Melchiorre, Executive Managing Director, CIO & Head of Brean Investment Group, and Max Mara and Cristian Notari, CEO of Max Mara USA. 

Here’s the link to buy tickets.
