UJA Trunk Show Returns to the Tent in Bridgehampton

GoDashDotAfter a three year hiatus, the Annual UJA Hamptons Trunk Show was held in Bridgehampton, NY on August 4, 2022. Though the weather was steamy, high temperatures couldn’t dampen the shoppers who crowded under the tent to shop for jewelry, apparel, housewares, art and even furs. Vendors displayed a rich array of merchandise, some custom made, and the reception was enthusiastic.
 
Adrienne Tanner, Executive Director, UJA Women said, “It was wonderful hosting an in-person Hamptons Trunk Show again - the first in three years - and bringing together more than 500 shoppers and 60 vendors who share our passion for philanthropy under our signature white tent. Beyond the shopping, it was the community spirit throughout the day that helped make the event a great success.”
 
Strolling the tent, we ran into some friendly faces from Westchester and also noted some others that warrant further investigation.

We stopped by a table for T’Shuvah Center and spoke to Viven Hoexter and Benjamin Lichtman. They explained that T’Shuvah Center is a Jewish recovery community for addicts of all kinds. Based in New York City, they integrate Jewish wisdom, text and ritual; the 12 Steps; and spirituality to help those suffering find a path to recovery. tshuvah 

The show was even better than we remembered it – and we look forward to next year under the tent.
