Brunch attendees will get a ‘taste’ of the East End

Influencers Gather At Maidstone




Vanessa Gordon of East End Taste and event planners Sean Koski and Brian Kelly will present the second annual Hamptons Interactive Influencer Brunch on Saturday, July 20, from 11 AM to 3 PM at The Maidstone Hotel in East Hampton.

“What I’m most excited about for this year, in particular, is to meet some of my favorite brands in person, while sharing this exciting experience with all of the attendees,” said Gordon. “The excitement for this year’s event is so abundant and I can already feel the energy of the event coming to life. My event team and I have worked so hard for the last eight months and are looking forward to bring the event to the super-chic Maidstone Hotel.”

Gordon is a lifestyle expert and influencer whose Instagram @eastendtaste boasts over 46,000 followers. She is a regular radio show host on 102.5 WBAZ featuring all things Hamptons. Gordon also writes a column for The Independent.

At the brunch, guests will be treated to complimentary brunch-style fare, libations, pampering, shopping, and gifting. The goods come from brands such as Brew Dr. Kombucha, La Croix, Reena Mathur, Intoxicating Beauty, Llama Momma Company, Life Aid Co, Serendipity Brands, Bomani Cold Buzz, and more. Catering will be provided by Cipriani. Notable astrologists and authors, Amy Zerner and Monte Farber, will be on site doing tarot card and astrology readings for VIP guests.

“There are many elements that will be different this year. I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but attendees will be greeted with plenty of photo ops, great food, music, on-site giveaways, beauty treatments, and so much more. It is certainly an event not to miss!” said Gordon.

A portion of the event’s proceeds will go to support Bideawee Animal Rescue in Westhampton and a presentation and announcement by Gordon will take place during the event.

Special guests include interior designer Cara Woodhouse and actress, author, comedienne, and philanthropist Lisa Rowland. Media sponsors of the event are The Independent Newspaper and Long Island Radio Broadcasting.

The event is mostly by invitation-only, but a limited number of tickets are available on Eventbrite.
