1 Our host, Cindy Sherman. Cindy is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary art. Cindy hosted the inaugural fund-raiser of the Azuero Earth Project at her home in East Hampton.
2 This beautiful Great Horned Owl was calm and welcomed "cooing" admirers. The “horns” referred to in its name are only tufts of feathers, that are neither horns nor ears. He was part of the wild animal petting zoo from Quogue Wildlife Rescue.
3 I loved this cute little Screech Owl. The Great Horned Owl preys on these little guys, but they seemed to get along at the event.
4 Cindy had beautiful fresh cut flowers and gourds on display in the backyard.
5 I loved the raised beds in her vegetable garden.
6 She arranged cut flowers in simple mason jars to adorn the bar.
7 This food was from Enterprise Farm. It was delicious!
8 These delicious temaki sushi wraps made with sustainable tuna, were from Uma Temakeria, a temaki shop set to open in New York City this fall. Temaki sushi is hand-rolled in a cone or roll shape. It is not cut into pieces like maki sushi. Yum! umatemakeria.com
9 Kids playing in the field. Cindy's home is in the Springs area of East Hampton, overlooking Accabonac Harbor.
10 Dinner plates designed by local artists were on display and for sale.
11 Later in the day we enjoyed some energetic, live entertainment from ELEW - an amazingly talented jazz pianist. He played at my neighbor Nicholas Jones' home in East Hampton.
12 ELEW in action.
13 ELEW's performances are very physical and he is often found reaching inside the piano lid to pull the strings directly as he passionately converts alternative rock into piano jazz. See him in action in this video: http://goo.gl/qBl8jH
14 ELEW and me. ELEW is wearing specially designed "armor" on his arms.
15 This is my 14-year-old "driver" who drove guests to the Zaslav party. David Zaslav is President and CEO of Discovery Communications.

26 There was a fabulous waffle truck in the driveway at the Zaslav's home.
27 They served yummy waffles with bananas and chocolate.
28 David Dunning and James Dunning - holding James' newborn daughter, Eloise.
29 The next day I had lunch at Harlow East with my publicist, Susan Magrino Dunning and her daughters-in-law, Tiffany Dunning and Katie Dunning. Katie just had the baby girl, Eloise, who you saw in the previous photo, and who was born on my birthday!
30 I enjoyed this delicious chopped salad with cucumbers, beets, garbanzos, and goat cheese.
31 They also served this grilled baby octopus salad with tomatoes, capers, potatoes, and jalapeno vinaigrette.
32 And this root vegetable salad with Sang Lee Farms beets, carrots, burrata, and apple cider reduction.
33 Richie Notar - the proprietor of Harlow East and Harlow NYC - warmly welcomed us.
34 Here's a photo of Richie and me in front of his cute animal cookie display at Harlow East.
35 Harlow East is an American Seafood Restaurant in Sag Harbor. It is right next door to Sag Harbor Gym, owned by my daughter, Alexis.
36 We went antiquing in Sag Harbor right after lunch- I have my favorite haunts- this is one of them!
37 Ruby Beets - a beautiful home store in Sag Harbor.
38 A giant beet at the entrance to Ruby Beets! I have found so many treasures here over the years.
39 This is Watchcase -- the ambitious new development of the former Bulova watch factory in Sag Harbor. There will be 64 residences here.
40 The Watchcase building.
41 I drove by this beautiful private drive and just had to have a photo taken here! It's truly one of the hidden treasures of East Hampton.
42 It's a private drive but I like to call it a Privet Allee!
43 The Town Pond in East Hampton. We often stop here to count the swans, and look at an old, beautiful East Hampton cemetery.
44 An incredible sand sculpture created for David Zaslav's party to celebrate Shark Week on Discovery.
45 Kevin Sharkey having fun in the sun!
46 My niece, Kristina Christiansen and her boyfriend, Barrett Miningham.
47 Inside the shark!
48 The tables at Harry and Laura Slatkin's party in East Hampton. The Japanese lanterns reminded me of the John Singer Sargent painting called Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose.
