On Saturday August 27th, Poker Queen Beth Shak and Social Life Magazine publisher Justin Mitchell hosted a poker evening in Bridgehampton to celebrate Beth’s Social Life magazine cover that benefitted The JED Foundation.
Over 150 guest including Beth’s husband, Fox News correspondent, Rick Leventhal, Jill and Bobby Zarin, and Gavin Degraw, tried their hand at poker, and made sure to grab a copy of Beth’s Social Life magazine while enjoying hors d’oeuvres at cocktails provided by Christie Brinkley’s Bellissima prosecco.
