Local veterinarian Scarlett Magda is teaming up with Georgina Bloomberg with oysters and wildlife in tow to host a “Night of Film, Fur and Fin” to celebrate local conservation initiatives, as well as our oceans at the Silas Marder Gallery in Bridgehampton on Thursday, August 22.
Renowned organic chef Todd Jacobs, owner of Fresh Hamptons will generously donate all of the mocktails and delicious vegan bites, and once the sun sets, around 8:15 p.m., Susan Rockefeller’s Mission of Mermaids and Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s Planet Ocean will be screened on the Haywall until about 10 p.m. Participating organizations include South Fork Natural History Museum, Quogue Wildlife Refuge and the Cornell Cooperative Extension.
The event begins at 7 p.m. with educators and animals, live touch tanks, Albert Zielinski of Healing Gardens & Natural Science Solutions, Jamie Hamilton Gregor Design, Building & Custom Furniture and Gina Bradley of Paddle Divas. Committee members include Andy Sabin, Amy Ma, Frank Quevedo, Natalia Saavedra, Jewel and Bob Morris, Sony Schotland and Zelda Penzel.
“I’m honored to be a co-host of this event for such an important cause, and one that is close to my heart,” Bloomberg said. “The ocean, animals and the environment are a closely knit web that needs us to start conserving what we have left,” she explained, adding, “I firmly believe in bringing attention to what each person can do to make a difference and I look forward to being a part of an event that will help with that cause.”
Bring a beach chair, blanket and picnic for this fun and informative free event! And remember, donations can be made to the Quogue Wildlife Refuge or the Cornell SPAT program
to support local conservation initiatives.
Silas Marder Gallery is located at 120 Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton, on the grounds of Marders Garden Center and Nursery (directly behind the Bridgehampton Commons).
