Friday and Saturday Fun for Adults to Benefit Kids

Fri, 04/12/2024 - 15:02

Parties on Friday night at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett and Saturday night at the Clubhouse in Wainscott will each benefit programs for children. 

The annual Springs Break party at the Talkhouse, hosted by the Springs School PTA, happens Friday from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets cost $30 at the door. There will be music, raffles, a silent auction, and food trucks, and everyone who attends — 21 and over, please — gets one raffle ticket with entry. Proceeds support the many activities the PTA sponsors for Springs students each year.

Those at the fund-raiser can also stay for free to see the 10 p.m. band, About Last Night, on the Talkhouse stage. 

Over in Wainscott on Saturday, a Copacabana Night at the Clubhouse on Daniel’s Hole Road at 6 p.m. will raise money for the Eleanor Whitmore Early Childhood Center. Tickets, which cost $25, include a prix fixe menu. The Bluestone Band will keep the dance floor full starting at 7, and there will be a raffle and a cash bar. Tickets are available in advance at 

A raffle offers some 30 items donated by local businesses, including gift certificates at local eateries at shops and fitness classes. 

The nonprofit Whitmore Center in East Hampton provides early childhood education and child care to those 18 months to 4 years old.
