2018 Playhouse Gala Honorees Announced
The Montauk Playhouse Community Center Foundation is pleased to announce that Lisa DeVeglio and Roger Feit will be honored at our 2018 Gala. This year’s Gala will celebrate Montauk’s authentic, generous spirit by honoring two individuals who have given so much to our community. Lisa and Roger are exemplary citizens who have donated time, energy and resources to improving the lives of all Montauk’s residents.
Lisa DeVeglio has been on the MPCCF’s Board of Directors since it was founded in 1999. She served as the President of the Board for seven years; she currently serves as President Emeritus. Additionally, Lisa has supported Freedom Fighter Outdoors and the Fresh Air Funds, nonprofits whose mission it is to organize empowering outdoor activities for veterans and underprivileged children respectively.
Lisa owned Willow boutique in downtown Montauk for 18 years; she is currently employed by the McCoy Bus Company, where she has driven the local school bus route for 15 years. Lisa lives with her husband Bob – known to many as Bing – in Camp Hero. She has two grown daughters, Cory and Leah, who reside in California.
Roger Feit is a founding member of the East End Foundation. The East End Foundation offers financial and emotional assistance to those dealing with cancer, chronic medical conditions, and other tragedies. Their annual ‘Rell Sunn Surf Benefit’ at Ditch Plains has raised thousands of dollars for local families.
Roger owns and operates Treewise, which provides organic plant healthcare on commercial and residential properties. Roger and his wife Beth live in Ditch Plains with their three children.
The Gala will be held on Saturday, August 4th. In keeping with the local theme, Nancy Atlas and Friends will headline. The Gala will also serve as a kick off to construction on the long-anticipated Cultural Arts and Aquatic Centers at the Playhouse.
