The East End is Awash in Pink Bows!

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

The East End is awash in pink bows. From Westhampton Beach to Montauk, our main streets are heralding the arrival of breast cancer awareness month thanks to volunteers from the Coalition of Women's Cancers at Southampton Hospital. If you look closely in shop windows, you will also see the Coalition's multi colored ribbons. The Coalition is a local charity that provides services for East End women battling breast, ovarian and uterine cancers. All monies raised stay local and make a difference in the lives of these brave women and their families. If you are inclined to donate this month, think local! In addition to the Coalition for Women's Cancers, the East End has other wonderful organizations that help those with cancer, including Lucia's Angels and Fighting Chance.

According to statistics from breast cancer.org, about 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. 85% who develop the disease have no family history of breast cancer. There are currently 2.8 million women worldwide who are surviving breast cancer today. Awareness of the disease has led to earlier detection and better survival rates.

Many thanks to the Coalition's volunteers in painting our beautiful villages and hamlets pink to raise awareness this October!

Creating and sustaining a supportive network in our community for women affected by breast, ovarian, and uterine cancers. The CWC focuses on education, early detection and empowerment to bring about better health care and improved quality of life.

Town & Country’s Board of Directors and Executive Staff Members

Monday, September 21st, 2015

Town & Country's Board of Directors and executive staff members enjoyed a beautiful luncheon at Duryea’s Dock in Montauk at the Annual Fighting Chance Lobster Bash. Duncan Darrow, Fighting Chance Founder and Chairman greeted everyone.

We all enjoyed our lobsters, chowders and much more, paring this great seafood with two great North Fork wines!

Chip Duryea was honored with a painting by Paul Davis. Chip’s generosity and love of Fighting Chance shone greater than the sunshine!

T&C has been taking our Board of Directors and executive staff members for the past few years… it’s a tradition we will miss since Duryea’s has been sold and will never quite be the same again without Chip.

A good time was had by all!
