Go “barefoot” for a magical night of cocktails, auctions, and great food at this year’s “Barefoot Under the Stars” East End Gala. The Barefoot Contessa herself, Ina Garten, with special guest Alec Baldwin, will host this annual benefit for Group for the East End at the sustainable Wölffer Estate Vineyards in Sagaponack.
The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by a four-course dinner designed by Ina Garten and renowned caterer Brent Newsom. After dinner will be a short program and finally a live auction by award-winning NBC Today Show Producer and comedian Angela LaGreca.
Items on the auction block include a Montauk luxury sportsfishing overnight to the Canyon, a farm to table wine tasting dinner with James Carpenter and Roman Roth, a Vineyard Vines custom surfboard from Walden surfboards, unforgettable outdoor destination travel packages and other fabulous items and getaways.
Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy music by DJ Tom Finn, and upon departing will be treated to an exclusive gift bag from W Magazine, including Korres natural skin care and other luxe items.
This event will take place Saturday, June 25 and is currently sold out, but for those who still want a piece of the auction, see their website to get on the wait list.
