NEW KDHamptons Party Diary: Beth & Howard Stern 'Get Wild!' for the Wildlife Rescue Center at Chuck Scarborough's Annual Event!



Hamptons animal lovers Beth & Howard Stern




Saturday, June 22, Chuck and Ellen Scarborough hosted the annual “Get Wild!” event. Guests were chauffeured from a long driveway and past a sunken tennis court to reach the dreamy estate.   Cute critters and owls joined the star-studded guest list to benefit that Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons, named in honor of Leslie Alexander’s mother.

Animal lovers and Southamptonites, Howard Stern and Beth Otrosky Stern (above) love attending “Get Wild!”.  Beth chaired the event last year and is known for her animal activism.  Most recently, she and Howard went to a municipal shelter and saved six foster kittens- AW!

The Swedish Culinary Summer has brought the top Swedish chefs to the Hamptons in order to benefit key charity events of the summer. Just for “Get Wild!”, Swedish Chef Jonas Dahlbom (below) worked with local Chef Peter Ambrose to devise an immaculate vegetarian menu for the guests!  They also donated two trips to Sweden and a huge “Swedish Dish Experience Package” featuring everything from knives to cheese to fine clothing. All proceeds of the auction benefitted the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center of the Hamptons.
