Saturday, I had the opportunity to assist the PR team at Super Saturday in the Hamptons. The event is considered a “garage sale” where many different vendors set up under a large tent to sell their items at a discount and everything benefits Ovarian Cancer Research. Miles, the PR Events intern and I caught a 6am bus to South Hamptons where we met Lauren, my boss and Robin, his boss. We grabbed a quick coffee and bagel at Hampton Coffee Company before heading to the tent to set up our table. While it was super hot, we were placed in a great location with not only a breeze but also a fan right in front of us, which helped to keep the heat down. I was in charge of keeping our merchandise maintained and refilling it when needed. We had a lot of people coming in and out, which was good for the brand! There were many celebrities there and I was able to help a few with their outfit choices, which was a fun experience.
For lunch, the event was catered by Sant Ambroeus and OMG was it delish. There was a huge buffet that was massive. I had a caprese salad, penne with eggplant and tomato sauce and salmon with quinoa and edamame. The best part was dessert! There were macaroons, s’mores tarts, tiramisu, gelato, fruit salad and more! And every part was just as yummy as the one before. After lunch, I was able to walk around a bit to see what all the different stands had to offer and even purchase some things. There were some amazing deals to be had, but I tried to contain myself… I just got some whitening toothpaste and a necklace, but oh my goodness, I could’ve spent a fortune, especially since it was all for charity.
After shopping, I spent the last few hours selling and helping customers before cleaning up and heading back to the bus to go to the city. It was a long and exhausting day, but full of fun and I would definitely do it over again!
