Guests including Melissa Zapin, Fabrizio Riillo, Rachel Heller, and many more enjoyed a classic evening for a cause while gearing up for the Love Heals at Luna Farm event on June 20th.
Prepare yourselves, because this summer's event promises to be "an evening of Beach Chic featuring sounds by DJ Kiss, southern-style barbeque, summertime cocktails, silent auction, fun and frolics!" And lots of love, of course. We can't wait! More story and pics from this event below...
The Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education began when Stefani Greenfield, Victoria Leacock and Dini von Mueffling met Alison when they were 15, and when she discovered she was dying of AIDS. They vowed to continue their efforts of educating youth about the disease. Love Heals benefits are not only events for the young and chic Hamptons crowd, but are heartfelt opportunities to raise funds and awareness for a cause.
