The Bridgehampton Association is a group of volunteers dedicated to supporting smaller, local charities in and around Bridgehampton.
Founded in 1984, we have given away more than $1 million over the years.
We raise money by operating The Book Bay, a used bookstore on the lower level of the Bridgehampton Community House, all year long, organizing a Golf Tournament at The Bridgehampton Club in June, and hosting a Holiday Fair in December, at the St. Ann's Parish House, on Main Street.
The Book Bay
Our Used Bookstore
The Book Bay's name comes from the garage bay we share with the BHFD. Check out the antique trucks in the bay on the left when you visit!
The Book Bay is staffed entirely by our volunteers and stocked with quality donations from our community. Selections includes bestsellers, 1st editions, Fiction, Non-Fiction, History, Sports, Cookbooks, Poetry, Bardening, Coffee Table and more!
The Golf Tournament
In June, the Bridgehampton Association hosts a fabulous Golf Tournament at the prestigious Bridgehampton Club. Greens fees include 18 holes, lunch, and prizes for Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, and scores. Raffle tickets are sold around town prior to the Big Day, for prizes donated by many generous local businesses. Local businesses also sponsor tees. So The Bridgehampton Club donates the course for the day, Panera donates lunch for everyone, and revenues from Players, Tee Sponsors, and Raffle Sales make for a great community fundraiser. Contact us if you want to be a part of this in any way!
The Holiday Fair
Every year, on the first Saturday in December, the Association hosts an amazing Holiday Fair. We sell greens and holiday plants, Jewelry, Baked Goods, Attic Treasures, Crafts, and our unique, hand-crafted Ornament. Books and another great raffle ensure you will find a treat for everyone on your list.
This is one of the local themes chosen for the Annual Ornament. Just to give you an idea of how detailed it is, it measures approximately 3"x4"! Check out our display of past years' ornaments inside The Book Bay.
