The Ellen Hermanson Foundation will celebrate its 20th anniversary on Saturday, June 20th, with a Salsa party entitled, VEINTE! Hosted by Steven Klein at his Westkill Farm, in Bridgehampton, from 6:30p.m – 10:00 p.m. Tito Puente, Jr. and his 10 piece band will be the highlight of the evening. Not since his late father, Tito Puente played his last event in the Hamptons in 1999, has the Hamptons seen an event of this caliber. VEINTE will be chaired by last summer’s honoree, Jean Shafiroff, known for her philanthropy and commitment to the community. Andy Sabin, longtime supporter of the Foundation, philanthropist and passionate environmentalist will be the evening’s honoree. Chef Peter Ambrose, who will be catering the gala, has created a menu, that includes a buffet dinner and open bar, to compliment the music and Latin theme of the evening. Before The Ellen Hermanson Foundation there was Ellen’s Run. Sponosred in 1996 by Julie Ratner and Emily Levin to honor the memory of their sister, Ellen Hermanson who died from breast cancer 42, this small 5K race evolved into one of the largest runs on the East End and led to the incorporation of The Ellen Hermanson Foundation in 1997.
