Coalition Building In The Hamptons
While Lindsay Lohan turned heads at the HEAT benefit that our executive fashion director, Candy Pratts Price, co-chaired at Steven Klein’s place in Bridgehampton on Saturday night (click here for a slideshow of party pics), a twenty- and thirtysomething crowd gathered at Bettina Prentice’s Sagaponack family home for the Artwalk summer party to benefit the Coalition for the Homeless. “I wanted to put together something that people my age could take part in without it being unaffordable,” said the art public relations maven. With raffle tickets just $20 each and artwork prizes by emerging talents like Quentin Curry, Aziz + Cucher, and Torben Giehler, Prentice and her fellow co-chairs Liam McMullan, Peter Davis, and Kipton Cronkite didn’t have trouble convincing the crowd to part with their hard-earned cash. Prentice’s husband, Jamie, won the Aziz + Cucher (the crowd joked that the auction was rigged, but he joked right back that he’d bought 80 raffle tickets), and fashion week newcomer Timo Weiland, whose show is on September 16, went home with the Quentin Curry. The event raised $6,472 for the Coalition.
