ALISON GERTZ FOUNDATION FETES 20TH: The Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education celebrated its 20th anniversary at the annual Love Heals at Luna Farm benefit in Sagaponack on Long Island on Saturday, which raised over $300,000. A downpour and the soggy field didn’t stop revelers like Nicole Trunfio, Rebecca Minkoff, David Zinczenko, Eric Villency, Richard Johnson, Scott Lipps and cohosts Hilary Rhoda, Charlotte Ronson, Andrew Saffir and Daniel Benedict from enjoying a real Southern barbecue, which was brought in from South Carolina.
Some were looking forward to balmier — and drier — outings this summer, like Rhoda, who is planning on hitting up Lollapalooza in early August. Saffir and Benedict are readying to hit a trio of islands in the latter half of summer: Capri, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
