Women’s Health Hamptons Gala kicks off Run 10 Feed 10….Party under the Stars Gala to Benefit FEED FOUNDATION
As Many of you know the 2015 theme of Hamptons Mouthpiece is Journey to fitness...so when I was invited to attend Women’s Health Magazine annual Hamptons event I was excited to attend. Unfortunately I was unable to partake in the earlier activities in Montauk on Saturday, August 1st, but I was able to attend the evening event Party under the Stars in Bridgehampton a benefit for a wonderful organization FEED Foundation. The FEED Foundation is the non-profit arm of FEED that supports programs and organizations that are effectively working to fight hunger and eliminate malnutrition. It has since grown to encompass hunger relief efforts both stateside and abroad, as well as provide aid during natural disasters and humanitarian crises worldwide. As of January 2015, FEED has provided over 87 million meals globally. www.run10feed10.com
