Interior designers Tony Ingrao and Randy Kemper hosted Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic's (PPHP) East End benefit, Everything that is Beautiful, on May 31 at their Woodhouse Park estate in East Hampton, which raised $410,000 to help support PPHP medical services, education and advocacy programs on the East End.  The benefit honored the organization's 75 years of keeping the community healthy and informed and featured both a live and silent auction of art, jewels, and design inspired by nature.

The auction itself raised $100,000 and included contributions from artists such as Ross Bleckner, Jeff Koons, David Salle, Kiki Smith, Kara Ross, Nina Runsdorf, Cartier, Sidney Garber, Louise Lawler, Bryan Hunt,and more.

Guests including Beth Ostrovky, Nicole Miller, Patty Raynes, Richard and Renee Steinberg, Christine Wasserstein, Dan Rattiner, Lisa Perry, Elizabeth Ballard, Benjamin Dollar, Richard and Eileen Ekstract, Jackie Harris Hochberg, Daphne Hoge and Savanna Hoge enjoyed a sophisticated 14 course bit tasting of delights such as Curried Tuna Tartare on Pappadam Chip with Radish, Porterhouse Sashimi with Sauce Ravigote and Pickled Ginger, and Little Cherry Pies catered by The Art of Eating, under an enchanting tent setup designed by Ron Wendt Design.  Planned Parenthood officials including Planned Parenthood Hudson Peconic president Reina Schiffrin and Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Cecile Richards wholeheartedly greeted their guests and kicked off the live auction with an inspiring thanks to supporters.
