The Hampton Lifeguard Association's summer kick-off party, which supports East Hampton's lifeguard, junior lifeguard, and Nipper Guard training programs, will be held on Saturday from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Clubhouse in Wainscott.

The association is selling 50-50 raffle tickets and will have a chance auction and silent auction for prizes including gift certificates to local businesses, gift baskets, spa treatments, and trips. There will be music by Brad Beyer, the Steven Tekulsky Band, and D.J. James Ryan, as well as food and drink specials, half-price mini golf, bowling, and arcade games. And because Saturday is also Kentucky Derby day, party-goers can compete in a derby hat contest.

There is no entry fee.
