The event recognizes the “craft and selfless service of two prominent horticultural leaders,”

At the Sagaponack garden
Madoo had its end-of-the-season members party on Saturday, and the Sagaponack garden went to the dogs and the well-dressed people who brought them, in this case, Peri Wolfman’s trio of puppies and Ron Rubenstein’s spinone.
Also attending were, above, Alexandra Munroe (in Derek Lam) with Alejandro Saralegui, the executive director of Madoo,
Rainey Day Erwin, a jewelry designer.
