Locals and Hampton vacationers alike joined the South Fork Natural History Museum and Nature Center this Saturday night for the 23rd annual summer benefit, SOFO Goes SOHO, raising funds for the support of the East End’s museum.
This year SOFO honored model, actress, and environmentalist Christie Brinkley for her active and concerned engagement with the environment, especially on that of the Southern Fork of Long Island, which is in present times, home to her and her three children, Alexa Ray, Jack and Sailor.
Over the course of the evening, attendees enjoyed delicious cocktails and hors d’oevures, while listening to a fabulous DJ set by Nick Cohen and Alexandra Richards, daughter of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. Those who did not hold back in their generosity for the evening’s cause delighted in food and bottle service in the reserved area.
Chartered by the New York State Department of Education in 1989, the South Fork Natural History Museum and Nature Center located right off the Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike is the only state-of-the-art natural history museum on the Southern Fork of Long Island. The privately funded nonprofit institution relies entirely on the support and generosity of its friends and donators. For over two decades, SOFO dedicated itself to the promotion of nature, education both within the museum and outside of its walls, through direct interaction and study of the surrounding ecosystems.
