Golf enthusiasts and Hamptons philanthropists gathered to support the Hamptons Golf Classic V at the Hampton Hills Golf and Country Club in West Hampton, New York.

New York Knicks point guard Chris Duhon hosted the event alongside NY Giants defensive end Justin Tuck and Hamptons Golf Classic Founder Zev Norotsky. Special guests included Real Housewives of New York City’s Jill Zarin as well as this year’s honoree, Richie Notar. The daylong sports event sponsored by Hamptons Magazine and Perrier raised money for Chris Duhon’s Stand Tall Foundation, addressing the needs of children through recreation. The money raised from the day’s event will rebuild basketball courts destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in Duhon’s home state of Louisiana.
Other attendees and golf players included Richard Johnson, Sessa von Richthofen, Adam Alpert, Greg Beinin, artist Adam Port, John Norotsky, Alan Rosenberg, Alan Weinstein, Jeffrey Rackover, John Brennan, and Glen Cho. VIP guests received complimentary TW Steel Watches and one of a kind Magaschoni cashmere sweaters. The evening concluded with an awards ceremony and silent auction.

The annual Hamptons Golf Classic provides a venue where Hamptons personalities can come together to support an individual charity, which changes every year. Past recipients of the Hamptons Golf Classic’s fundraisers have included the Fresh Air Fund, the Make a Wish Foundation, and Help USA. For more information on the Hamptons Golf Classic, please visit
