Douglas Elliman President and CEO Dottie Herman talks to press after the company and the East End-based Douglas Elliman Hamptons Housewives team raised nearly $8,000 in much-needed funds for the Katz Institute for Women’s Health and the Cohen Children’s Medical Center by participating in the Northwell Health Walk at Jones Beach in Wantagh, New York on Sunday, May 15. Barbara Mattson, the East Hampton assistant office manager, who brought in the second largest individual donation, raised $3,750. The Bridgehampton-based Hamptons Housewives Team, which included Hamptons Marketing Operations Manager Melody Newberry and Marketing team members Sandhia Ramkhelawan and May Gilley, plus Associate Broker Ann Marie Pallister, raised $5,095, earning its place in the Top 10 fundraisers. A grand total of $287,000 was raised by those participating in the event, which was formerly the Every Woman Matters Walk.
School board elections in the Bridgehampton School District have largely been uncontested in recent years. That is not the case this year.
