An Evening in the Hamptons for the New York City Mission Society

Thursday, August 21, 2014

New York City Mission SocietyHelping children, youth and families in some of New York City’s poorest neighborhoods is the number one priority of the New York City Mission Society. The society’s motto, ‘changing lives since 1812,’ is indicative of the lasting and life-changing effects of the society’s work. This year, Ted and Dina Merrill Hartley are set to host an end-of-summer soiree, benefitting the NYCMS. The 2014 “Evening in the Hamptons” will take place August 30 from 7-10pm at the beautiful East Hampton estate of Ted and Dina. The event committee is chaired by  Stanley H. Rumbough, secretary of the board of directors of the New York City Mission Society, son of Mrs. Hartley and proud descendant of the Colgate and Rumbough families; and Jean Shafiroff, philanthropist and 2014 recipient of the Dina Merrill Hartley Public Service Award. Arturo O’Farrill, an educator, composer and Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist, is slated to provide a special musical performance to accompany an evening full of fun, food, drinks and fireworks. Cole Rumbough will provide lyrical entertainment along with O’Farrill’s musical talents. The event raises money to support NYCMS’s programs; the programs that continue to break the cycle of poverty for New York’s children, youth and families.
