Southampton Fresh Air Home Benefit 
 Draws Crowds from Palm Beach, Greenwich & The Hamptons

Annual Decorators-Designers-Dealers Sale Kicks off Social Season


 

There is no surer sign that summer is just around the corner than the eagerly anticipated annual Decorators-Designers-Dealers Auction & Sale to benefit the Southampton Fresh Air Home now marking its 111th year of providing an extraordinary camping experience for physically challenged children.

Once again, the D-D-D featured live, silent and wine auctions, as well as, a dizzying array of home furnishings and antiques for sale. All beautifully displayed in room-like settings thanks to the creativity of the Design & Decorations Committee who mix new and gently used furnishings artfully. The showcase rooms featured choice and rare antiques, previously owned and new furniture, lamps, paintings, framed prints, fabrics, decorative accessories and much, much more. Truly many a second home has been decorated by canny purchases here by regular attendees.

So popular is the event � and so plentiful the bargains � guests flock from Connecticut, Manhattan, The Hamptons and Palm Beach to have their first pick of these extraordinary treasures beautifully displayed by the D-D-D design team and offered at unbelievable prices.

The Silent Auction featured items from the top names in fashion, jewelry, travel, fine dining, entertainment, sports, health and beauty. Gucci, Tory Burch, Loro Piana, Tamara Commolli, Nicole Miller  were just a few of the dozens of luxury labels available to savvy shoppers. 

The Wine Auction featuring over 60 lots this year is every oenophile�s delight with such rare wines as a 1982 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, a case of Etienne Sauzet Montrachet Grand Cru 2000 and two bottles of Chateau Petrus 1983 scoring high bids from collectors.

The live auction featured over a dozen once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Among the lots commanding serious attention � and bids � were a 4 day stay at the exclusive Provence luxury wine estate La Verriere with sumptuous meals provided by a Michelin starred chef; a visit to the Shelter Island studio of the late world renowned sculptor John Chamberlain who is the subject of an acclaimed retrospective at The Guggenheim and a documentary HEAARTBEAT by his step-daughter Alexandra Fairweather which will premiere July 26 at Art Southampton;  a winter getaway VIP weekend package to Art Miami, the city�s cutting edge, contemporary art fair in the first week of December known for its stylish gallery-like décor and showcasing the finest in contemporary and modern art from more than 100 international galleries and a Sunset Cruise around Shelter Island with cocktails and dinner on Patty & George Kraus  vintage 70 yacht the Lady Patricia.

Fueled by delectable hors d�oeuvres from Canard, shopping up a storm were Jean & Martin Shafiroff, Nancy Stone, Joe Fuchs & Sheila O�Malley Fuchs, Jean Remmel FitzSimmons  Donna & Dick Soloway, Cherie Kaufmann, Melanie & John Wambold, Ann Madonia, Eric & Sandra Ripert, Kevin Maple, Katlean de Monchy, �super shopper� Aida Turtorro of "Sopranos" fame and hundreds more.

This year the D-D-D paid tribute to longtime chairman and Board President Michaela Keszler  who has for many years made the SFAH a major priority and has championed the cause here and abroad.

Kudos must also go D-D-D Co-Chairmen Cristina Greeven Cuomo and Tania Higgins; Auction Co-Chairs, Amy Hoadley and Raya Keis Knight; Wine Auction Co-chairmen, Kenneth P. Meszkat, Randall D. Smith and Kurt Wolfgruber; Design & Decoration Chairman, Ann R. Grimm and her co-chairmen, Tish Bliss and Christl Meszkat, their vice-chairs and the literally hundreds who helped make this one of the best D-D-D Sales ever. The D-D-D continues to be a major fundraising effort for the Southampton Fresh Air Home accounting for 40% of the camp�s operating budget each year thanks to extraordinary leadership and dedicated committees

The Southampton Fresh Air Home (SFAH) is one of the few residential camp facilities in the eastern United States that accommodates severely as well as mildly and moderately physically challenged children

 SFAH begun in 1901 by a small group of women, wishing to share the benefits of sun and ocean air with city-bound, physically challenged children is the East End�s oldest charitable organization. From a tiny rental house in the first season to its current state of the art facility on Barkers Island Road, SFAH continues to grow, serving more and more campers each year.
