“SOFO ROCKS” 24TH ANNUAL SUMMER FUND RAISING PARTY benefiting the South Fork Natural History Museum on Saturday, June 15, 2013 6:30-9:30PM

SoFo Rocks

SoFo Rocks

South Fork Natural History Museum 
377 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike – Bridgehampton

Saturday, June 15th, hundreds of guests will pack the South Fork Natural History Museum as they present their 24th Annual Summer Fund Raising Party. This year, called SoFo “ROCKS” it is appropriately named for their honoree, “MERMAID EXTRAORDINAIRE” Susan Rockefeller. A true Renaissance woman, Susan is a documentary film maker, author, jewelry designer and most of all, perceived as an important philanthropist. One of her groundbreaking books, “Green at Work”, helped to introduce environmentally related jobs into untraditional areas, such as art, architecture, marketing, finance and more. Her mind is always thinking of various, untraditional ways to make our earth and its inhabitants “greener, healthier and safer”. She serves on the Board of OCEANA, The Alaska Conservation Fund and the David Rockefeller Fund. In summer 2012, she launched her jewelry collection, most of it based on the ocean and all of the wonderful creatures that inhabit its unique and vast environment. Christie Brinkley, also very well known for her respect and work with the environment was SoFo’s honoree, Summer 2012. This year she will serve as the “Honorary Mermaid”.Together they make a strong team when speaking about anything environmentally connected. The event, which runs from 6:30 – 9:30 will begin with guests touring the museum; something that one never gets tired of or bored with. The group will then be ushered into a 5000 sq ft tent that will be designed by Daria Culver and Jason Bencivenga, Party Up Productions. This bare space will be transformed into a lounge-like atmosphere, totally untraditional looking and the music will be provided by one, if not, “THE” hottest DJs around today. DJ Phresh, generously donated by Adam Alpert and his company 4 a.m. DJ’s, will keep the dance floor packed all night long, with a little break so that SoFo may make their important presentations. The food will be catered by talented Chef Peter Ambrose. A full, open bar will be provided by Michael Cinque, Amagansett & Wainscott Wine & Spirits and Peggy Lauber, Wolffer Vineyards. Tickets begin at $ 250, with a lower ticket being offered at $ 125 for juniors, those 30 and under. The Independent newspaper has generously donated an entire advertising campaign, as well as underwriting our Step & Repeat to whom we have the honor and pleasure of adding a new and very generous monetary and product sponsor, Girard Perregaux, a super high end Swiss watch manufacturer with its origins dating back to 1791. SoFo’s mission is to provide nature education for children and adults and to foster in them an interest, knowledge and appreciation for the natural world. Please visit us at 377 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike. (www.sofo.org) Reservations are completely recommended and can be made by calling or e-mailing the following two people: Linda B. Shapiro, event coordinator, 631 725-2023 lbspro@optonline.net or Frank Quevedo, SoFo’s Executive Director, 631 537-9735 sofoexdir@optonline.net
