Hamptons Pride celebrated with a Fundraiser at LongHouse on Sunday.
June 26, 2022: Hamptons Pride, the East End’s new LGBTQ+ nonprofit that brought you the first Pride parade in the history of the Hamptons celebrated at LongHouse on Sunday.
This outdoor fundraiser included live music by the Julie Bluestone Jazz Trio, wines and cider by Wölffer Estate Vineyards, and light bites by private chef Natalie Nichols. The silent auction featured works by local artists, home decor items, gift cards to restaurants and shops, and much more. All money raised supports activities and programs for East End LGBTQ+ people and their allies.
Hampton Pride, Inc, is a not-for-profit 501c3 established by locals for the benefit of locals. The organization’s founding goal is the creation of an historical marker and outdoor social area on the footprint of The Swamp (the last and longest-running gay club in the Hamptons) in what is now Wainscott Green, a park in the Town of East Hampton.
