Maureen’s Haven, the Riverhead organization that works with houses of worship across the East End to ensure that the homeless have shelter during the winter months, has announced that renowned television actress Susan Lucci and her son, golfer and reality TV star Andreas Huber, will serve as honorary chairs of its annual Lobster Bash fundraiser later this summer.
The fundraiser is scheduled for Thursday, August 22, and will be held at Dockers Waterside Restaurant and Marina on Dune Road in East Quogue.
“We are thrilled that Susan Lucci and Andreas Huber have so graciously agreed to lend their support,” Maureen’s Haven Executive Director Tracey Lutz said in a press release. “It’s a critically important fundraiser for us and adding their star power will help ensure that Maureen’s Haven has the resources to carry out its mission.”
Ellen Cea, the director of tenant and community development at the Hampton Business District, a complex proposed near Gabreski Airport in Westhampton, and Joyce Skarka, the founder and president of Inspired Marketing Strategies, will serve as event chairs.
According to Ms. Cea, this year’s Lobster Bash will boast a country theme.
“To complement the great food and drink, we’re serving up live country music, line dancing and a whole lot of other country surprises,” she said. “It’s all about having fun.”
Maureen’s Haven provides shelter, meals, and vocational and educational training to homeless adults and families year-round throughout the East End.
Tickets for the fundraiser start at $175 per person; proceeds will directly benefit Maureen’s Haven’s winter shelter program and its day center, which serves those in need year-round. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (631) 727-6831 or visit www.maureenshaven.org.
