Like the weather outside, the charity event season in the Hamptons continues to heat up. But where to maximize your charitable dollars this weekend? Here are the two best choices:
EMPIRE STATE PRIDE AGENDA'S HAMPTONS TEA DANCE
4p to 8p
The Ark Project: 60 Millstone Road, Water Mill
The ratio of bartenders to guests is almost 1:1 and Lady Bunny provides the tunes, so this benefit is a reliably good time. Rumors are high that Governor Cuomo might be popping by this year.
PARRISH ART MUSEUM'S AFTER 10 PARTY
10p to 1a
25 Jobs Lane, Southampton
The main gala for the Parrish takes place earlier in the evening, but the After 10 party attracts a more relaxed and younger crowd and is worthwhile if you're wanting to support the Parrish but not wanting to endure an entire seated dinner.
