Southampton Hospital's 54th Summer Party

Grand Prix Monaco

Story by: Edward Callaghan
 Photos by: John Wegorzewski

 

 


 

With vintage Formula 1 racing cars lined up at the entrance and a Hotel de Paris decor theme carried off inside the tent, the 54th Southampton Hospital Summer Party happily embraced the evening's theme of Grand Prix Monaco.

 

The brainchild of Chairwoman Laura Lofaro Freeman whose husband race car driver Jim Freeman is a Daytona 500 winner, the evening was a wonderful salute to the exotic races of years past.


 

The annual party is one of the few affairs for which the ladies don long designer evening gowns and open the vaults to sport their favorite diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds and the gents always wear jackets AND ties. It is truly one of the last vestiges of the elegance that has been long associated with Southampton.

 

The hour & half cocktail party preceding dinner and dancing gives all the ladies & their escorts - and swarms of photographers -  ample opportunities for photos on the lawn before ducking into the mammoth tent erected on Wickapogue.


 

Legendary New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham in his trademark French workers smock was on hand as always to chronicle the folks, as he has done for some 40 years. And this year he had plenty of eye-candy for his society page.
 

Leading the vibrantly colored fashion parade were chairwoman Laura Lofaro Freeman in a stunning strapless blue satin gown that matched her cornflower blue eyes; Jean Shafiroff in an elegant shoulder-baring floral be-decked white Oscar de la Renta gown with trailing skirt; Sara Herbert Galloway in vibrant blue silk; Amy Kane in black & white ruffled Chanel; Lucia Hwong Gordon in curve hugging fuchsia; Cheri Kaufman in a red chiffon goddess dress; Katherine Andreassen in slinky purple and diamonds; Cassandra Seidenfeld in ruffled gold, Joy Marks in a plunging fuchsia cocktail gown; Gillian Miniter in ruffled violet satin and Melanie Wambold in an off the shoulder linen & lace gown. 

 

On hand to greet the guests were Southampton President & CEO Bob Chaloner and Southampton Hospital Foundation President Steve Bernstein who welcomed the hundreds of hospital supporters including Martin & Jean Shafiroff, Jean Remmel FitzSimmons, Sandra McDonnell & Chris Obetz, Joe Fuchs & Sheila O'Malley Fuchs, Ellen & Chuck Scarborough, Howard Lorber, Dr. Martin & Nancy Stone, John & Melanie Wambold with sons George & John Jr., Paola & Arnie Rosenschein, Whitney Fairchild,  Peter & Liz Haveles, NancyJane & Jeffrey Loewy, Alex Douzet & Andrea Greeven Douzet, Zita Davisson & Gary Lawrance, Debbie Bancroft, Lucy Puig & Jose Pincay,  Dr. Martin & Martha Kane, Steven Cuchel, Amy & George Kane, Sharri Kane, Dr. Harvey Manes, Suzanne Murphy, Judith Hadlock, Sen. Ken LaValle,  Dr. Frank & Myra Weiser, MaryAnne Horwath & Michael Shaheen,  Gillian & Sylvester Miniter, Cindy & Ladd Willis, Chase Baker, Denise & Larry Wohl, Lisa & Rome Arnold, Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley & wife Marianne, Chris Del Gatto & Veronica Webb, Steve & Stephanie Hessler,  Margo McNabb & Jimmy Nederlander, Nancy Silberkleit, Patricia Duff, Peter Brant, Karen Bass & Shail Upadhya  wearing a suit of his own designed fabric, featuring trademarks of famous racing cars!


 

As Graff was the Honorary Jewelry Chair their were a dozen gorgeous models wearing fabulous Graff jewels, as they slinked around the room posing provocatively.


 

Following cocktails and some very heavy bidding on the extraordinary silent auction, guests poured into the main tent where Alex Donner & his Orchestra were already filling the dance floor with their catchy rhythms.

 

Chuck Scarborough once again the evening's emcee told the glittering crowd  The Hospital is healthier than ever, thanks to the efforts of President and CEO, Robert Chaloner and his team. Scarborough called him "The Michael Phelps of hospital administrators," to which he humbly responded, "He’s younger and has more hair."  

 

Everyone then settled in for an elegant dinner created by Robbins Wolfe Eventeurs in a gorgeously decorated tent by Scalamandre head Steven Stolman.
 

The event benefited the Hospital’s Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department. Sponsorship support for Grand Prix Monaco Included Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, honorary real estate chair and Graff Diamonds, honorary jewelry chair.
 

“The funds raised in support of the Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department are critical to a facility that provides emergency care to more than 25,000 emergency patients annually. Our Summer Party Chair, Laura Lofaro Freeman, and her dedicated committee promise that the evening will be a spectacular success,” said Southampton Hospital President and CEO Robert Chaloner.
