Sag Harbor Approves Bay Street Gala, But Frets Over Parking

Posted on 12 January 2015

Although there was an inch or two of fresh snow on the ground, the Sag Harbor Village Board was looking ahead to July on Friday morning when it met to review the request of Bay Street Theater and the Sag Harbor Center for the Arts to once again hold its summer benefit on Long Wharf.

The board, which had tabled the discussion from its December meeting, gave the green light for the cultural organization’s annual gala, provided it submit an acceptable parking plan to the village board and reduce the size of its party tent to allow emergency vehicles to gain access to the pier.

Hamptons Wellness Week Takes Over the Month of January

Posted on 08 January 2015

Kiley DeMarco and Anastasia Gavalas came from totally different perspectives when they met a couple summers back at an event at Wolffer Estate in Sagaponack. Ms. DeMarco was behind the web site onehealthyhamptons.com, where she writes about wellness on the East End. Ms. Gavalas was an author and busy mother of five.
“We just hit it off,” said Ms. DeMarco, “and started brainstorming ideas of working together.”
Ms. Gavalas’s book, “Wing It”, is about staying sane in the madness of parenthood. She also started the Wing It foundation, which helps fund global and local education initiatives. The women were supportive of one another’s work, and wanted to figure out a way that they could bring the backgrounds of wellness and family together to create a healthier community.
“We like different things,” said Ms. Gavalas. “How we relax, fitness, eating. We have different lifestyles but we both want balance.”
They were both tired of spending lots of money trying to find a wellness regime that worked, often without success. They thought about how in the winter, there are so many wellness businesses struggling to stay on people’s radar.
“We wanted to find a way,” said Ms. DeMarco, “to allow locals to try fitness classes for free or for less to empower themselves to be healthier.”
That’s how Hamptons Wellness Week was born.
