Long Island, NY –– The 500 attendees for the American Heart Association’s 19th Annual; Hamptons Heart Ball took this year’s theme to heart and definitely showed off their “Glitz & Glamour”.  Set under amazing tents on the grounds of the Hayground School in Bridgehampton, the American Heart Association, once again proved that theirs was the party to be at on Saturday, June 13th raising more than $750,000 to help in the fight against cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

This year, the Heart Ball honored Howard Bluver, CEO, Suffolk County National Bank with the Distinguished Leadership award and the Distinguished Service Award was presented to David H. Adams, MD, Cardiac Surgeon-in-Chief, Mount Sinai Health System Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Professor and Chairman, Department of Cardiovascular Surgery Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and The Mount Sinai Hospital President, Mitral Foundation. This year’s Hamptons Heart Ball was chaired by Meredith Cohen. Cristina Civetta, heart survivor was Jr. Chair and Chris Wragge, News Anchor, CBS 2 News, Emmy-Winning TV served as Master of Ceremonies.

The live auction, conducted by Chris Wragge and Cristina Civetta, included fabulous items such a stay in a Family Tuscan Villa owned by the Civetta's family as well as vintage wine and a table at Rao’s in NYC. Howard Bluver donated one of his own very special bottle of wines that brought the American Heart Association thousands.  Donatella the Iron Chef showed off her generosity and donated dinner for 10 in her restaurant with a lesson in pizza making paired with wine.

During the Special Appeal, 14 year old heart survivor and dancer, Gianna Schupler tap danced every time someone in the audience donated to the American Heart Association.


Some of the Committee members and guests included: Ed Sheetz, Joy Marks, Alicia Bellandi, Andrea Wernick, Randi Schatz, Glenn & Jennifer Myles, Nicole Noonan, Brenda Sujecki, Terry Thompson, Sara Herbert Galloway, Laura Mastandrea, Elaine Saladino, Bonnie Fuchs, Jon & Joanie Gruen, Debra Halpert, Jill Kandell, Leslie Modell, Anna Rhodes, Dr. Tracy Pfeifer and Consuelo Costin. The Heart of the Hamptons Ball, is a fun and elegant event focused on raising funds for the mission of the American Heart Association. Friends and colleagues from NYC, Long Island and the Hamptons enjoyed the beautiful setting of the Hamptons while eating delicious heart healthy foods catered by the Garden City Hotel, drinking delightful wines and having fun dancing to the music all night long.
