    Hamptons evening benefits Audubon Islands Sanctuary project

    WATERMILL, N.Y. — If the plans of a group of Palm Beach residents come to fruition, there will be more new to see on Southern Boulevard than just the bridge.
    There will be a people sanctuary, co-existing with the Bingham Island Sanctuary.

    To that end, Katie Carpenter, Campion and Tatiana Platt and Robin Leacock hosted an event to kick off the Audubon Islands Sanctuary project.

    The gathering took place July 31 at the home of Robin and RobertLeacock.

    The evening included cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a look at proposals to turn the neglected Bingham Island Sanctuary into a jewel of the Intracoastal.

    Campion Platt, an architect, will donate designs and plans for the project, which will include paths, yoga stations and overlooks.

    They plan for all the permits to be in place by the time the new bridge construction begins so the work can be done at the same time.

    More than 50 people attended, including Lea Brokaw, Peter Farmer, David and Margaret Luce, and James and Margo Nederlander.
