Edie’s Backyard BBQ

About the annual Edie’s Backyard BBQ Fundraiser:

Our signature summer fundraiser kicking off Memorial Day Weekend in the Hamptons!

Edie’s Backyard BBQ began over 50 years ago as a private Memorial Day weekend party thrown by Edie Windsor and her first wife Thea Spyer at their Hamptons home for friends and loved ones. 

Today, the event has evolved into a can’t-miss afternoon of food, drink, and entertainment to support all of the excellent work being done by the Edie Windsor & Thea Spyer Foundation for LGBTQ+ causes and organizations.

Edie’s Backyard BBQ fundraiser is hosted by Judith M. Kasen Windsor, wife of the late Edie Windsor, and our host committee under the auspices of The Edie Windsor & Thea Spyer Foundation non-profit organization.
