McGee Brings Argyleculture Contest Winners to the Hamptons

EAST HAMPTON, N.Y.—The McGee Group brought winners of their Argyleculture Register-To-Win contest to The Living in Color 13th Annual Art for Life Gala, hosted by the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation at Russell Simmons’ estate, here, on July 28.

The contest, which allowed ECPs to enter for a chance to win a weekend in the Hamptons and two tickets to the event, was won by Jim Ostermann of Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group in San Diego, Calif. and Greg McFarland, OD, of Desert Eyecare Center in Desert Hot Springs, Calif.

The winners and their guests enjoyed a weekend at East Hampton Point and VIP access to the event. The gala raised more than $2 million for the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, which is dedicated to providing inner-city youth with exposure and access to the arts.

This year’s benefit honored recording artists Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, Betsy Z. Cohen (Bancorp Inc.), Tamia and Grant Hill (The Grant Hill Foundation) and Marc J. Leder (Sun Capital Partners Inc.). The guest list included Soledad O’Brien, Star Jones, Salt-n-Pepa, Anita Baker, Melanie Fiona, Michael Williams, Jill Zarin and more.
