receive definitive information about their daughter’s death. When they got confirmation, they quickly decided to find a way to honor her life. The family has set up the Stephanie Crispinelli Humanitarian Fund in support of the teenager’s dedication to helping the less fortunate “both in this country and abroad,” according to Sharman Peddy, the mother of one of Crispinelli’s college roommates. The grieving process for Crispinelli’s three roommates, all from the East Hampton, has been extremely difficult. When they heard about the Fund, they knew they wanted to get involved. As a result, the three girls, with the support of many others, organized Love Lost in Haiti. Through a widespread community effort, that includes donations from over 50 local vendors for the raffle auction, the event has grown to extraordinary proportions. “We’re expecting a big turnout,” Peddy said, estimating between 100 and 200 people. Love Lost in Haiti will take place on Saturday, June 12 from 3-6 p.m. at Ziggy’s Restaurant in Bridgehampton. Admission is $10 for adults and free for children under 10. It will feature music by the popular drumming group, Dan Bailey and Living Rhythm, mixing reggae and African drumming. “Stephanie would’ve liked that,” Peddy said. Dan Bailey started an organization himself to help in the earthquake relief, called Hamptons for Haiti. With regard to Saturday’s event, Bailey said that he “wanted to continue supporting similar causes.” The evening will include a raffle and silent auction. Items include a Doug Kuntz aerial photograph of your home, a baseball signed by Alex Rodriguez, and a ride in an antique airplane from East Hampton airport. What began as three grieving girls trying to remember their friend, has truly grown into an evening that will prove a strong reminder of how fragile and precious life really is. Love Lost in Haiti will take place on Saturday June 12 from 3 to 6 p.m., rain date Sunday June 13, at Ziggy’s,964 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton. For more information, e-mail

Growing up in Texas, Los Lonely Boys started out as a backup band for their father, who also played in a band with his brothers, The Falcones, which performed conjunto music around southern Texas in the 1970s and 1980s. The name Los Lonely Boys comes from a song their father wrote for them when they were children. “I’m just a lonely boy,” was one of the lines from that song. To reflect their MexicanAmerican heritage, they used “los” instead of “the.” Los Lonely Boys will be at WHBPAC on June 19 at 8 p.m. Tickets $100/$85/$70.
