The Peconic Community School will hold their second annual “Share” fundraiser and cocktail reception this Sunday, August 11. The event will be held at The Golden Earthworm Organic Farm from 5 to 8 p.m. and will feature drinks, live music, light farm fare and a live auction.
Items up for auction include a round of golf for four at the famous Sebonack golf club, as well as gift certificates to various restaurants from Manhattan to Mohegan Sun.

This past year Abrams has been an educational adviser for the Peconic Community School.
Proceeds will contribute to the Peconic Community School, which was founded in September of 2012 after several members of the community came together to found North Fork Education Initiative, a nonprofit organization that works to build a local independent school and to create awareness and opportunities around alternative education in the community.
