The Ellen Hermanson Foundation celebrated its 20th Anniversary on Saturday, June 20, with a special gala.


Founding Chairs Emily Levin and Julie Ratner, as well as Event Chair Jean Shafiroff, welcomed guests to the event at photographer Steven Klein’s West Kill Farm in Bridgehampton.


The charitable foundation raises funds for patients with breast cancer and their families, with the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center located at Southampton Hospital.


The Ellen Hermanson Foundation was established in memory of journalist Ellen Hermanson, who lost her battle with cancer in 1995. Ellen used her writing to give a voice to breast cancer survivors, and promote the need for early detection.


The event was a joyous celebration of the foundation’s achievements over the past 20 years, with music provided by Tito Puente Jr. and his band.
