Guests gathered at Sunset On The Harbor In Sag Harbor on July 25,2015
 
Guests gather to enjoy the sunset with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in Sag Harbor this weekend at the Sunset on the Harbor event at the the Bridgewater Yacht Club.  The sold out fundraiser benefited the LGBT Network, a non-profit organization serving Long Island's LGBT community since 1993. Proceeds from the event will support the LGBT Network's Hamptons LGBT Center in Sag Harbor that provides services and a safe space for LGBT youth, adults, older adults, and LGBT-headed families of the East End throughout the year.
 
The LGBT Network is an association of non-profit organizations working to serve the LGBT community of Long Island and Queens throughout the lifespan: Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY), The Long Island LGBT Community Center (The Center), Services and Advocacy for LGBT Elders – Long Island (SAGE-LI), and the Queens LGBT Community Center (Q Center).
 
 
LIGALY is the original organization of The Network as it was established in 1993 and is nationally known for its work with LGBT youth in the areas of education, advocacy, youth leadership and development and support. The Center and SAGE-LI along with the Network was founded in 2005 to unite these non-profits to help more LGBT people across the lifespan and create a cost efficient way of serving the Long Island LGBT Community.
With shared administrative staff between all organizations, this structure eliminates duplication of administrative and executive staff thereby allowing each organization of The Network to share resources. This unique model reduces overhead costs and expenses and as a result more than 80 cents of every dollar raised are channeled directly into critical programs and services for Long Islanders of all ages and walks of life.

Together, each organization works within The Network to end homophobia and transphobia, to provide a home and safe space for the LGBT community and to advocate for equality.

Since 2012, The Network also produces the annual Pride Parade and PrideFest celebration every June and Living Out magazine each month. Both Pride and Living Out build community and celebrate their identities while also providing visibility to their movement.

On July 18, 2015 The Shelter Island Historical Society hosted The Black and White Gala. The Historical Society’s signature fund raising summer event is an opportunity to support the Society while enjoying great live music, food (including a raw bar), a complimentary photo of each guest and a silent auction. Supporters gathered together wearing their favorite summer black and white ensembles to enjoy an elegant evening of cocktails, dinner and dancing.

I sat down in an intimate interview with their President Elizabeth Pedersen and her husband Bill Pedersen.


The mission of the Shelter Island Historical Society is to research, preserve and share their heritage and island history through education, exhibition, scholarship and community activities. They interpret Shelter Island’s past and on-going life through preservation of historical material from the first inhabitants, settlers and town fathers, to those who have made it a caring and unique community through the years. They strive to preserve the island’s heritage for future generations.

Inaugural St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons

Hello Darlings,Welcome Back to
Cognac's Corner Magazine
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Barry Klarberg and Sara Herbert-Galloway at the Inagural event for St. Judes in the Hamptons in Water Mill, New York.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Inaugural St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons took place on Saturday, July 11, 2015 in Water Mill, New York.
 
Supporters had an amazing time benefiting the kids of St. Jude and hope that all were inspired by the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!

Thanks to contributors, the organization raised more than $500,000 for the kids of St. Jude.

The evening would not have been made possible without the contributions from many generous sponsors and donors, guests and volunteers.
 
Special thanks were given to dedicated event hosts and co-chairs and their entire committee, as well as their emcee KT McFarland, their talented performers, the Movin’ Out Band, and of course, the wonderful St. Jude family.
 
Your participation helps St. Jude continue as one of the global leaders in finding cures for pediatric cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Because of everyone's generous donations, no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Unsure of his life’s direction, a young Danny Thomas sought guidance from St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes. If the saint would point to the path he should take, Danny vowed to build a shrine in his name. Success followed Danny’s plea and soon after, the legendary entertainer set about fulfilling his vow to St. Jude. The result was St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
 
St Jude has spent more than half a century finding cures and saving children, and their groundbreaking research has helped push the survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% in 1962 to more than 80% today.
