After a four-year hiatus, Heart of Springs, a benefit for Ashawagh Hall, the Springs Library, and the Springs Presbyterian Church, will take place on Sunday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. under a tent on the lawn at Ashawagh Hall.
Damien O'Donnell, chef-partner at Bostwick's on the Harbor, will orchestrate a menu including a raw bar, local seafood, and some of his specialties. Also on offer will be beer from Springs Brewery and a selection of wines from Amagansett Wine and Spirits. Jane Hastay and Peter Martin Weiss will provide the music.
Regarding attire, Loring Bolger, organizer of the benefit, said, "We've seen top hats, waders, white linen, and flip-flops. It's basically whatever's comfortable."
Tickets, which can be bought at heartofsprings.org, are $150 for one and $250 for two.
Across the street from Ashawagh Hall, at the Parsons Blacksmith Shop, an evening of square dancing in celebration of East Hampton's 375th anniversary has been put together by the East Hampton Historical Farm Museum. Free for all, the dancing will take place on Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.
