AVENUE friends misbehave ’80s style for Love Heals

Monday, July 21, 2014

Founded on a potato farm with an old farmhouse that now stands at the middle of the 175-acre estate, Wölffer Estate Vineyard is  a beautiful abode, rich in history. Its become a world-class winery throughout its time; unquestionably the classic vision of socialite bliss.

On Saturday this estate served as stomping grounds for a rockin’ cocktail party in benefit of Love Heals, the Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education. It was the foundation’s annual Let’s Misbehave Party that each year raises funds to allow the foundation to continue their advocating and education of HIV/AIDS.

This year’s benefit brought guests out in their 80s best out in Sagaponack, from bright neons to leg warmers. Rock of Ages and American Idol star Constantine Maroulis with the coverband Jessie’s Girl played the 80s throwback tunes.

Caroline and Eric Villency, Danielle Snyder and Jodie Snyder Morel, Alina Cho, and Kelli Delaney Kot and Dr. Mark Kot served as the benefit’s co-chairs. The benefit’s sponsors were as follows: Uber Beauty, Tequila Patrón, Kris Fuchs, Scoop NYC, Hamptons Magazine, Michael S. Lorber, Life Ice, The May & Samuel Rudin Family Foundation and Skull Cashmere.

Obviously, Wölffer wine was served, but guests also enjoyed specialty cocktails from Patrón and danced the night away to the 80s jams. It was a night full of memories made and charitable actions.
