Glorious summer afternoons

The children raised $403 from the sale of lemonade and Tate’s brownies at the launch of The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Park Avenue Potluck CELEBRATIONS.
On a glorious summer afternoon, families from all over the Hamptons came by ferry to Bridge Street, the central gathering place on Shelter Island laid out by Frederick Law Olmstead in the early 1800s and now a historic landmark, to celebrate the hugely successful launch of The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Park Avenue Potluck CELEBRATIONS. Members of The Society of MSKCC and Florence Fabricant, co-authors of the cookbook and entertaining guide, autographed copies of the book which has become a best seller in America and an international phenomenon in over 12 countries.

Shelter Island residents also turned out for the celebration hosted by Bridge Street Gifts, located in one of historic district’s original clapboard buildings.

Abundant presentations of recipes from the book -- gazpacho served in individual small glasses, and platters of tea sandwiches and asparagus canapés were prepared as a gift for The Society of MSKCC by Shelter Island’s greatest chefs -- Chef Justin Smillie of Sunset Beach, Lisa and Terry Harwood, Owners/Chefs of Vine Street Café, and Matt Danzer and Ann Redding, Owners/Chefs of Reddings Market.

The delicious menu tastings and The Mecox, a limoncello and vodka libation donated by Shelter Island Wines & Spirits, were served on the house to the delight of the authors and their guests.

In heat that felt like 100 degrees in the shade -- where a glass of cold lemonade was a welcome relief -- members of The Society of MSKCC’s Kids Kick In Committee, school age children (age 3 to 14) who raise funds to bring happiness to MSKCC’s youngest patients in Pediatrics throughout the year, unveiled their new sidewalk lemonade stand, hand painted by local artist Mary Larsen. At the end of a very busy afternoon, Bryan Carey II, who hosted the stand with his twin brother, Paul Carey II and over 20 members of the Kids Kick In committee said, “I wanted to sell lemonade and brownies today because we give it to the children at Memorial Sloan-Kettering and it makes me feel happy.” The children raised $403 for MSKCC's Department of Pediatrics from the sale of lemonade and brownies contributed by Tate’s Bake Shop and set the record for one-day sales at a Kids Kick In sidewalk lemonade stand. Paul Carey II (age 5 3/4) said, “I can count more than 64, but we raised too much money and I can’t count this much!”
