Bobbi Brown

Jill Davis, Kate Davis, Hollis Forbes, Liz Lange and Mary Margaret Trousdale will co-chair the annual Lecture & Luncheon Fundraiser at Maidstone Club to support the new Stony Brook Medicine (SBM) East Hampton Off-Campus Emergency Department on Thursday, July 11, 2024. Presented by the Southampton Hospital Foundation (SHF), this year we’re talking beauty with iconic makeup artist Bobbi Brown. BookHampton owner Carolyn Brody will moderate the conversation. 

“I believe that true beauty begins with health and well-being. As a Hamptons resident, with a Jones Road Beauty outpost in East Hampton, I am thrilled to support the mission of this new Emergency Department by being a part of this exciting event,” said Brown. “The opening of the new Stony Brook Medicine East Hampton Off-Campus Emergency Department empowers our community with the care they deserve, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to lead vibrant, healthy lives.” 

As a professional makeup artist, Bobbi created ten simple lipsticks that evolved into a global beauty empire, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. After leaving her eponymous brand, she returned to her entrepreneurial roots, launching several business and media ventures. Her business empire now includes justBOBBI.com, a digital editorial content site; The George, a 31-room boutique hotel; and 18Label, a state-of-the-art production studio. Her newest venture, Jones Road Beauty, is her collection of products for all ages, skin types, and skin tones. Recognized by Business Insider as one of the fastest-growing brands, Jones Road Beauty has garnered accolades from esteemed media outlets such as Allure, Vogue, W, In Style, and Essence. 

“Bobbi’s approach to beauty has had a lasting influence on the industry, encouraging women to embrace their natural beauty and setting new standards for inclusivity and simplicity in makeup,” noted Hollis Forbes, Co-Chair of the Luncheon. “She is a trailblazer for women in business. Bobbi’s natural beauty philosophy transformed the cosmetic industry, and she continues to influence the beauty world today through Jones Road Beauty.” 

“We are so excited to welcome Bobbi as our guest speaker this year. She brings great energy and enthusiasm to her work, and to this event,” added Jill Davis, Co-Chair. “We respect that people are busy, and host just one annual fundraiser for the East Hampton Emergency Department, so we hope everyone will attend the lunch, or donate to our community's much-needed East Hampton Emergency Department.” 

Registration opens at 10:45 a.m. The lecture begins promptly at 11:00 a.m., with lunch to follow at 12:00 p.m.
