A/X Armani Exchange Sponsors School's Out Benefit

The East Hampton event drew the likes of Andy Cohen, Brian Atwood and Joseph Altuzarra.

SUMMER BENEFITS: A/X Armani Exchange sponsored the 13th annual School’s Out benefit for the Hetrick-Martin Institute in East Hampton on Saturday, which drew the likes of Andy Cohen, Brian Atwood and Joseph Altuzarra. The event, chaired by GQ associate publisher Brendan Monaghan and Lucky advertising director Bobby Graham, raised over $200,000 from the crowd, which was decked out in a vivid pageant of seersucker, ribbon belts and colorful loafers. “I’m presenting resort this week so this is my last hurrah before that starts,” said Altuzarra, strolling the lushly manicured grounds of the estate, owned by Peter Wilson and Scott Sanders.


The same evening, Keith Bloomfield and Mark Mullet hosted a party at their Bridgehampton home, along with co-host Lisa Anastos, to celebrate the much-anticipated new Herzog & de Meuron-designed site of the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, which opens in November after two years of construction. Terri Sultan, director of the museum, helped welcome Fern Mallis, Cathie Black, Donny Deutsch, Beth Stern, Katie Lee, Marchesa’s Edward Chapman and former police commissioner William Bratton to the poolside fete.
