Santa Claus Parade in Toronto
November 20, 2011

Though the calendar says mid-November, there was plenty of yuletide cheer at Sunday’s Gotham preem of Sony’s “Arthur Christmas.” Screening and post-party, held at Clearview Chelsea, drew numerous thesps and their tots.

“Kids start to ask, ‘How does Santa get to everyone’s house?’ and this movie is so great because it answers that question,” said Mariska Hargitay, with 5-year-old son August, who is still “completely in the magic, which is so beautiful. We’d like to keep it that way.”

Looks like everyone had a great time despite the heat!

Carnival rides and games, interactive crafts, and plenty of family fun (despite temps in the 100’s) made the day for the nearly 900 guests of the Children’s Museum of the East End (CMEE) who came out to support this wonderful Hamptons museum this past Saturday morning.

Edie Falco of “Nurse Jackie” along with co-chairs Mariska Hargitay of “Law & Order SVU” and lifestyle expert Katie Brown added their support bringing the kiddies out for a day of laid back entertainment that started with facepainting and clowns as you entered the grounds of the CMEE. Parents sipped iced coffees from Hamptons Coffee Company and youngsters raced ahead to the Coolhaus Ice Cream truck for an icy treat covered in sprinkles of course. Those looking to cool off a bit took turns inside the museum where they could get their sugar rush at the Dylan’s Candy Bar candy craft of Crumbs Cupcakes in the lobby between performances by the Big Apple Circus To Go, The Anna Jack Show, and The Hey-Ya Brothers.

Super Soccer Stars kept the little ones moving outside near the pop-up petting zoo complete with bunnies and goats. Children also took turns enjoying with pony rides and cooling off in the many water bouncy houses erected for the day.

The task of creating healthy lunches went to Brown who got into the spirit of the day creating special “bucket” lunches that ranged from flank steak flatbread sandwiches to cornflake chicken. “I wanted to cook something kid-friendly and healthy,” she remarked. After lunch it was time for more treats, this time form the Soft Serve Fruit Co. and Sweet Loren’s Cookies. Suncreen was a must on the blazing day and convenient application stations were smatterd across the grounds thanks to Sunbow Sunscreen.

The extensive silent auction, with tickets to the Jimmy Fallon tapings, major sporting events, and dinners at exclusive restaurants in the Hamptons and New York City, was key to raising over $200,000 during the event. CMEE Executive Director Steve Long was a positively jubilant host and made the rounds checking on each guest throughout the day declaring that, “This is such a great day!” Truer words were never spoken.

This is mostly about Maria Bello but there is a cute little Mariska mention at the end. Looks the event was a huge success too!

East Hampton – Maria Bello does not come to the Hamptons often but she surely made her mark this weekend when she hosted The Hamptons for Haiti Event “Making an Impact on the Poorest of the Poor in Haiti” at the Ross School on Sunday July 17, 2011. The event which featured brunch, cocktails, a live auction and a musical performance by “The Diva of Haiti” Barbara Guillaume, who is running for Mayor of Haiti.

The star studded event was attended by NBC’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star Mariska Hargitay, CBS’s “Medium” star Patricia Arquette, founder of Urban Zen Foundation, designer Donna Karan, actors Liev Schreiber, Fisher Stevens and Terry O’Quinn, New York Rangers’ Sean Avery, models Hilary Rhoda and Kristine Szabo, director and producer Doug Liman, singers Melky Jean and Barbara Guillaume, author Alison Thompson, Urban Zen creative director Sonja Nuttall, fashion photographer Marc Baptiste, Senior Vice President of Social Impact at AOL/Huffington Post Brian Sirgutz, artists Beth O’Donnell and Peter Tunney, photographer Elizabeth Jordan, CQ: Expressive & Receptive Intelligence founder Clare Munn, designer Christopher Fischer, benefit-chair of Southampton Hospital’s 53rd Annual Summer Gala Jean Shafiroff and philanthropist and model Anjhula Mya Singh Bais.

Bello looked stunning at the event in a multicolored Dior dress and when asked about her favorite Hamptons spot she replied lounging at friends houses in their pool.

Bello and co-founders got the idea for We Advance while visiting Haiti after the earthquake, they were at an IDP camp and women kept asking them for health-care help. With the need for a clinic evident they decided that they would start in the poorest neighborhood with a clinic, which would help women and children with health-care, community outreach, play programs and English class.

Bello who visits often to see the work that We Advance is doing says that Haiti has the most extraordinary beaches and the most beautiful, joyful people. She stated, “People are so receptive if anyone wants to help, especially when there is no democracy and you are working directly with the Haitan people and empowering them and they know what they need best and you are only there to help them.”

They decided that We Advance would be run by women because the partners and board of directors are all powerful fierce, amazing Haitian women and We Advance has a staff mentorship program so that within three or four years they can completely hand over the whole program to Haitian women.

Her goal for the benefit is for people to learn things about Haiti that they haven’t seen before, see work that so many people are doing to support the cause, and volunteer. She took to the stage to sell a trip to Haiti to volunteer with her. You could see Bello’s passion for Haiti when she stated, “When my foot stepped on the soil I knew it was home.”

With so much celebrity support Bello said that they were all very receptive to help and she was so lucky. She has many friends who live out in the Hamptons like Hargitay and when they offered to have the event she knew it would be a great opportunity. She and Hargitay have been friends for 15 years and she considers Hargitay one of her best friends. Hargitay has The Joyful Heart Foundation and they support each other’s causes.

Up next for Bello is her new show “Prime Suspects” on NBC. It premieres this fall and is on Thursdays at 10 p.m.

The Children’s Museum of the East End announced that Tamara Lackey, world-renowned children’s and lifestyle photographer, author and host of the new web interview show “reDefine,” will donate her services and be the photographer for its annual benefit, the CMEE Family Fair, on July 23, 2011. Hosted by co-Chairs Mariska Hargitay, Ali Wentworth and Katie Brown, the Hamptons’ premiere summer event seeks to raise $200,000 for year-round programming at the museum.

Lackey, whose photos have appeared in publications including Vogue and Town & Country and the TV series “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and whose most recent “edutainment” book plus DVD set is “Capturing Life Through Better Photography” says the event squares perfectly with her passionate commitment to charitable causes and what she calls her “delight and satisfaction in capturing what is most real and spontaneous in children.” For the Children’s Museum of the East End, delight will likely register with old and young alike, and not only because the cuisine will include hot and dogs and cotton candy; entertainment will feature performers from the Big Apple Circus.

In 2010, the CMEE Family Fair saw record attendance of almost 800 guests and this year, the committee is planning for an even larger turnout approaching 1,000. Executive Director Steve Long explains the importance of this benefit, “The Family Fair is a great way for CMEE to support its mission of promoting learning through play while raising the funds necessary to provide unique educational programs that address important issues facing families in our community.”

While CMEE remains the East End’s most visited museum and offers unparalleled children’s programming all summer long for seasonal visitors, the heart of the museum is their year-round involvement with the East End community and the opportunities they are providing to families in Eastern Long Island.

CMEE has developed a series of partnerships in the past few years that are designed especially to serve the East End community:

1. After learning that one in seven families on the East End is functionally illiterate and their children are twice as likely to be illiterate themselves, CMEE partnered with Sandpiper Music Together to promote literacy, language acquisition, and parenting skills.

2. In response to the long list of low-income families waiting for accessible pre-school in the East End, CMEE partnered with Head Start to house a pre-school inside the Museum for the first time.

3. CMEE collaborated with the Retreat to help families affected by domestic violence by offering job-skills training for parents in CMEE’s classroom while their children participate in the Museum’s programming.

4. In an effort to ensure that all children with physical and developmental disabilities can obtain the same educational and social benefits as other children, CMEE has worked with many partners in the community including the Child Development Center of the Hamptons, the Southampton Town Disabilities Committee, and the Flying Point Foundation for Autism.

CMEE’s Family Fair will be on July 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at 376 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike in Bridgehampton. Advance purchase tickets are $150 for adults and $100 for children. For more information call 631-537-8250.
