Dan's Out East End Impact Awards to Honor Twin Forks LGBTQ+ Leaders
Dan’s Out East End Impact Awards will recognize those who impact, influence and support the LGBTQ+ community and its champions across the Hamptons and the North Fork during a celebration on Sunday, August 20.
The afternoon will be one of celebration, dancing, great food, drink and, most of all, connection. Schneps Media, publishers of Dan’s Papers, Behind the Hedges and the Long Island Press, is proud to bring together the East End LGBTQ+ community to connect, support one another and do business.
“We’re delighted to be able to put the spotlight on the LGBTQ+ community out east. They are an incredible and powerful part of our community and we are delighted to salute them,” says Victoria Schneps, publisher and president of Dan’s Papers.
One-hundred percent of the event’s silent/live raffle will benefit the Edie Windsor Healthcare Center at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and Sun River Health.
The festivities start with drinks, hors d’oeuvres, photos and mingling. Food will be served and a DJ will be spinning tunes.
Back this year as emcees are NPR/PBS host Bill McCuddy and Douglas Elliman broker and Hamptons Chatter author Patrick McLaughlin. The pair also host an LTV summer show Weekend Live: The Hamptons Now through mid-September.
McCuddy also emcees a weekly comedy show on Wednesdays at Main Prospect in Southampton.
