The 4th Annual Party Under the Stars took place on a perfect summer night in Bridgehampton, NY. On Saturday evening August 1st Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club welcomed an ecclectic crowd of supporters to the 4th Annual Party Under the Stars. The event celebrated Women's Health and Feed Project's collabaoration on Run 10 Feed 10, the drive that provides meals to American's in need.
Greeted by a live reggae band upon arrival, guests were whisked past a small red carpet and onto the expanse of the intimate venue. Over cocktails and hors d' oeuvres, many mixed and mingled enjoying familiar reggae tunes and posh views of rolling waves along the shore. Women's Health executives, VP & Publisher Laura Frerer-Schmidt and Editor-In-Chief Amy Keller Laird, among others, greeted guests and thanked them for coming. Lauren Bush Lauren, former model and Founder of Feed, was seen being interviewed just after posing for a photo with her mother Sharon Bush.
A Run 10 Feed 10 table was set up for attendees to purchase their very own Women's Health Run 10 Feed 10 bag. For those seeking to make a greater contribution, an entire section of candlelit Silent Auction offerings to be perused at one's leisure. Luxe items ranging from sporty accessories like Maui Jim's Cliff House sunglasses to island getaways like a 3-night stay for 2 at the Buccaneer Resort in St. Croix were tempting options. Fitness enthusiasts could bid on a Title Boxing Club 5-class package or a relaxing spa package from their local Exhale spa.
Celebrity guests, a huge component of the VIP event, were in abundance with early arrivals including: Actress & Celeb DJ Taryn Manning of Orange is the New Black fame,
Actor Eric West, Adirenne Bailon, and Fitness pros Chris & Heidi Powell. Later arrvials included Chris Wragge, Tashiana Washington, Laura Prepron, Molly Sims and of course actress/advocate Rosario Dawson, among others.
As the night sky set in, the popular bonfire sparkled outside with several guests gathering to join those who'd secured a spot early on. Others, more into the music scene, made attempts at getting a photo of or "with" the talented Taryn Manning who was set up inside.
In all , a great evening for a great cause.
