The Ellen Hermanson Foundation hosted its “In The Pink” breast cancer benefit on Saturday, March 30, at 230 Elm in Southampton, co-sponsored by The Independent. The event honored Rita Wasserman, a breast cancer survivor, for a lifetime of community service. There were chef tastings and a live auction with Angela LaGreca serving as auctioneer. Music was performed by The HooDoo Loungers.
There will be a public sale of the works of artist Beryl Bernay-Kossovskaya on Friday, July 19, and Saturday, July 20, from 10 AM to 4 PM at 18 Neck Path in East Hampton. Many of the diverse selection of paintings and photographs by the long-time Springs resident were inspired by her United Nations foreign correspondent assignments. Other works reflect her love of the area’s light and ambience, while some included pen-and-ink sketches of Paris, New York City, and her 1940s fashion designs.
