Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman, the founders of Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbor, will be honored at Fighting Chance’s summer party at the Wesnofske family barn on Scuttlehole Road in Bridgehampton on Saturday. They will receive a medal of honor for 2019 for Yoga Shanti’s 10 years of partnership with the free cancer counseling center, which is based in Sag Harbor and serves the East End. The studio offers a free twice-a-week yoga class for those entering long-term cancer remission.
“Hundreds of patients receiving crisis counseling at Fighting Chance have also participated in the yoga program, typically for a one-year period,” said Duncan Darrow, the founder and chairman of Fighting Chance. “Many of the patients firmly believe that the yoga experience has helped to keep their cancer in remission.”
Cocktails start the evening at 6:30, with the dinner at 8. A handful of tickets remain. They cost $400 per person and are available by calling Fighting Chance.
