Have you ever been like, “Man, I’d really love to hang out with Alec Baldwin at a super cool summer party in the Hamptons”? Well, now is your big chance.

We’re excited to be giving away 3 sets of tickets (6 tickets in all) for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s “Opening the Doors to Compassion” event in Sag Harbor, NY — just a two hour drive from NYC.

The event will take place at the Dorothy Frankel Gallery and Sculpture Garden on Saturday, August 7th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and feature PCRM president Neal Barnard, director of public and government affairs Elizabeth Kucinich, and, yes, special guest Alec Baldwin.

The event is completely sold out, but we got our hands on 6 tickets and want to give them to YOU.

Here’s how to win: Simply leave a comment below and tell us why you want to attend. We’ll randomly select 3 winners by 5 p.m. (EST) on Wednesday, August 4th, and hook you up with a pair of tickets.

Because, I mean is there really anything better than partying with Alec, Ecorazzi and PCRM in the Hamptons? We didn’t think so!

    I’ve been a long time fan of PCRM. Especially their dissection campaigns and their work to get med schools to stop using live dogs and pigs as teaching animals (who are then killed after being operated on). And who doesn’t love their healthy lunches campaign! I would love to go to this event and tell them in person how absolutely amazing I think they are.

  • Erika

    I appreciate the fact that the PCRM’s efforts to save helpless and innocent animals from being killed for supposed purpose of medical research. I like that they understand that animals do not have to be used in order for medical research to take place. I also like that the PCRM is very passionate about promoting preventative medicine. As a person that works in the health care industry I understand the need for preventative medicine and it is important for organizations to try to get the word out to people that preventive medicine is extremely important. I would love to attend this event to learn more about the mission of the PCRM and to talk with others who appreciate the efforts that they have made toward a healthier and more informed society.

  • Angela I.

    Top three reasons I would love to go to this event:
    1) I’m a huge fan of the PCRM (I drink my green smoothies everyday!)
    2) I’ve lived in NYC for 5 years but have never been to the Hamptons
    3) Is it just me or does Alec Baldwin continue to get hotter with age?

  • Nate

    What an great event! Baldwin, Barnard and E. Kucinich, what more could you as for? Pick me, I’d love to go.

  • Jen Hamilton

    I deserve to win because I know the A B C’s …Always Be Closing on why veganism is the best choice for the animals, people and the planet. I hope that you get the reference ;)

  • Denise Arrieta

    I have always picked up stray animals. I feed them, clean them up and find homes for them, with a 100% return policy, no questions asked. I love that someone else cares. I would like to go to New York, and I would really enjoy meeting Mr. Baldwin.(Who wouldn’t?) But with kids and animals, its not gonna happen, would you take my sister instead?

  • http://ecorazzi.com Lori Watzman

    Haven’t been to the Hamptons in awhile and Alec and I do have some catching up to do and totally supoort the efforts and accomplishments of PCRM.. soo ooh… ooh Pick ME, PICK ME!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1516794195 Christine Bush

    Reasons I would love to to picked for this event: PCRM is a wonderful organization that does a lot of great things for people, Alec Baldwin is an interesting intelligent person I would love to meet, and I’ve always wanted to go to the Hamptons.

  • Audrey

    I am bewildered by Alec’s extraordinary talent; seeing him in Equus was an amazing experience, so much so that I had to see it twice. I would love to be picked so I could meet him this time.

  • Julie Larson

    I am always excited to see a celebrity who cares about animals. In our celebrity-driven culture, it seems that they are the only ones who can really make a statement and have it be heard, so more power to them!!! Alec Baldwin is a very talented guy, and he wins lots of extra “points” with me by being involved in this worthy cause. Thanks to Mr. Baldwin!!!

  • Kyle Svendsen

    I would love to go so much! I’m crazy about Ecorazzi and Alec Baldwin and PCRM! My boyfriend always gives me a hard time when I spend $ going to charity fundraisers but this way I could go and bring him without having to hear how I need 2 save more of my $. Please! Please!

  • sandy

    Would love to go, but live on West Coast. Keep up the excellant work.

  • kathleen wissenz

    I would LOVE to attend the PCRM event in New York because I have been a supporter of their organization for many years. I am vegan, and I do not believe in animal testing of any kind. I look forward to a time when all people live a cruelty-free lifestyle and see animals for the beautiful individuals they all are. I adopted two rescued lab rats from The Humane League of Philadelphia two years ago that I will love forever. They died peacefully last year, and they made me even more committed in trying to help end animal testing forever.

    • http://google Catherine King

      I too loved the rats that I acquired from my young nieeices and more from one of their friends. I went on to adopting more from the Winnipeg Humane Society. Rats are awesome little creatures. They each have personalities. One female I had was the housekeeper. Every day, when I returned home from work, I’d find a mess of floor shavings tossed out of the cage. I stayed home one afternoon and saw this girl, very busy, tossing only the soiled shavings.

  • Tana Lambert

    I can think of no better way to spend my time… a worthy cause and a “worth it” guy!! Oh Alec, you inspire me. I hope to be able to say those words in person. Thanks for the chance at marking off one of the things on my bucket list!

  • http://turnerkaren63@hotmail.com KAREN TURNER

    Hi there, I would love to come to this event to gather more information and how I can get more involved. So I’d like to meet Mr Baldwin and Co. to get more insite, help and advise, so that I can bring it back to Australia and fight for this great cause. I work in the health industry and have seen how this operates and I have got to tell you I didn’t like what I saw.

  • Linda Edwards

    I have been a supporter of animal rights for quite some time. The work being done by so many organizations to provide homes, food and adoptions for needy animals has always impressed me and encouraged me to do the same. All my pets have been strays and they’re great. No animal should be mistreated or used for experimentation just because they are “animals”. Their love is unconditional and where else can you get that? It would be an honor to attend an event for such an organization. Oh, and meeting Alec Baldwin wouldn’t be too bad either.

    • Linda Edwards

      Just corrected my email address – no “?” please.

  • Reed

    because it would be fun!

  • Kareyn Pratt

    The best parties are the most original – and PCRM exemplifies an innovative organization leading the way in compassionate, ethical and effective medical practice and research. So with this kind of forward thinking, PCRM’s ‘Opening the Doors to Compassion’ event on August 7th has got to be the hottest ticket in town! The delectable Mr Baldwin is just the ‘organically grown cherry on my unbleached flour, preservative-free cake’. So to speak.

  • Deborah Susswein

    I just discovered ecorazzi this morning when I did a search for “freegans”—I heard the term for the first time on “Oprah” last week and wanted to learn more. I read about the Dalai Lama as freegan, then found the Chelsea Clinton wedding story—I didn’t know she’s a vegan and was delighted to see that her wedding menu was primarily vegetarian/vegan. One new discovery after another and I finally found Alec Baldwin and his work with PCRM. It resonates with my values,work and volunteer projects. I believe that we in this country need more and better education about our most vulnerable: children, elders, animals, etc. I eat nothing “with a face and a mother” for both health and ethical reasons; I work with children, and I’m an educator/brain trainer. My passions are networking about preventive/alternative health, elders and children. I’ve just published a book that I edited, written by past writing “students” and will be putting out a new edition that will benefit the hospice that cared for my mother, who died in February at age 93. Hospice was a new experience for me as were the responsibilities, challenges and gifts of taking on the role of caregiver for a most dear family member. I am constant seeker of knowledge and continue to spread the word about those who need it most. Attending the August 7 event would be a dream come true for me. Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Hannah

    Because I never win anything truly awesome and would LOVE to experience this with my vegan husband!

  • http://www.hillaryrettig.com Hillary Rettig

    Because I donated a kidney to an animal activist I didn’t know.

    And Dr. Pippin from PCRM provided important input that convinced the transplant team that, though my blood levels were different ‘cuz I’m vegan, I was healthy enough to donate. (Healthier than a carnist!)

    Then I wrote about it in an article that was published in Huffpo, Girlie Girl Army, and elsewhere:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/hillary-rettig/my-big-fat-vegan-kidney-d_b_163139.html

    And that article inspired at least one other vegan to donate a kidney.

    And I’ve written a book for vegan and other activists The Lifelong Activist: How to Change the World Without Losing Your Way (Lantern Books, 2006).

    Because this has been my life’s work and can certainly use the synergism of collaboration, refreshment and accomplishments of what is YET TO COME!

  • http://garyploski.com Gary Ploski

    I’d love to meet Alec Baldwin to learn if he really is an alien leading a war against us via Hulu. Has anyone proven that he is human? Hmm? ;-) It would simply be great to attend the event. Thanks for the offer.

  • http://pamelahatch.com Pam Hatch

    I have always admired the work of PCRM and Dr. Barnard, especially after seeing him here in Columbus, Ohio. Also, my husband and I just had to cancel our much needed vacation (not having had one for 3 years now) because our dog was afflicted with sudden acute kidney disease and we had to devote all our attention to helping him heal. The Hamptons is a place I’ve been wanting to visit for a very long time, and the perfect place to meet up with some courageous leaders, including Alec B. and Elizabeth K., whom I love!

  • Eric M

    I want to attend because it sounds fun!

  • SG

    Firstly, I have a fabulous cruelty free dress, heels and purse, ready to go!
    I am four years vegetarian and on the brink of a career in the nutrition field.
    It would be a great honor.

  • Ellen

    Throughout my life, I have overcome illness by taking the road less traveled.. by searching for peaceful alternative to heal myself & others, such as fasting, being vegan or raw. PCRM continually inspires me and gives me hope that we can be healthy, happy & thriving, while respecting & loving all living beings. It would be a dream come true to celebrate with this extraordinary organization.

  • http://www.twitter.com/wishiwasinparis Janine

    I would consider it quite an honor to attend this event. I’ve been a vegetarian for 13 years and vegan for 7 months, and would love to meet others who are as passionate about animal rights as I am! I also would totally love to see Dorothy Frankel’s beautiful sculptures in person!! thanks for the opportunity! <3 ecorazzi!

  • Ann

    vegan

    when the lights don’t go out but are always out
    when the grass is wire cutting into my feet
    when my nose and lips are cut off
    when my baby is taken from me
    when I don’t have space to turn around
    when I don’t know what outside means
    when I lose my mind
    when I am sick and bleeding
    when I cannot walk
    cannot stand
    when I am
    chained
    dragged
    beaten
    when I hear the screams
    when I am eating
    anything
    made of suffering
    I am

  • JayP

    I too know the ABC’s.

    Alec Baldwin’s Compassionate … and I’d crawl there to see him and Neal in person. I suppose there isn’t a plane ticket included?

  • Samantha

    Would love to attend and be energized by the group!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=21413492 Kaitlyn

    I would love to attend! As a vegan of only 9 months, I’m hungry to learn and meet other compassionate people fighting for a cruelty free planet! What better way than this event!

  • Paula

    Medicine that encompasses compassionate care is at the heart of the healing process. Thank you, PCRM!

    here’s the deal…

    i have always been a big fan of alec baldwin!

    anybody who knows me knows that about me.

    i just adore him.

    more then that i appreciate his brand of humor.

    i find his choices delicious perfection.

    i recall during ‘the departed’ when his character states ‘i love the patriot act’- i KNEW he ad libbed that line.

    as a gift, my husband got me a pic of him and tina fey. through some connections he got it signed by alec. it says, ‘dear carter i’ll wait…not forever’. it was one of the most romantic gifts i ever got!!

    anyway, i’ll sign off by saying i support PCRM and i do NOT support animal testing of ANY kind. i think spending a summer evening in the hamptons with alec baldwin would be just delightful.

    i would also like alec to know i am very happily married woman and that any fantasies i have of alec usually involve witty banter and tickle fights.

  • ayannogo

    I am interested in attending this event to learn more about research ethics in medicine. I am passionate about research ethics in communities of color and low income and am interested to learn more about how PCRM uses its mission to promote those that are most vulnerable. I am also very passionate about environmental issues and how they disproportionately impact communities of color and low income. Hopefully I can learn more about all of the intersections between treating all creatures equally and with respect.
