Black Tie International:
Southampton Hospital Foundation / 62nd Annual Summer Party


Jean Shafiroff and Martin Shafiroff

Jean Shafiroff and Martin Shafiroff


Monday, August 24,2020, Southampton, N.Y. - Joey Wölffer, Donna Karan, Gabby de Felice, Jean Shafiroff, Jim and Hollis Forbes (Southampton Hospital Association Trustee) and over 400 other guests helped the Southampton Hospital Foundation raise over $750,000 for the Stony Brook Southampton Hospital (SBSH) while observing COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, thanks to multiple micro-galas held all over the East End on Saturday, August 1, 2020.

All the mini events were linked together through a virtual toast hosted by Robert S. Chaloner, Chief Administrative Officer for SBSH and award-winning actor, Liev Schrieber. Commenting Chaloner, SBSH says, “Our Summer Party is one of the key celebrations of the Hamptons social scene which takes 11 months to plan. I’m delighted our team was able to create a completely new event, in a matter of a few weeks, amid the Covid crisis.

With all the significant Covid expenses, we need these funds more than ever to support our 24/7 x 365 days a year Jenny & John Paulson Emergency Department and build our East Hampton Satellite Emergency Department. Raising funds to help with on-going supplies of technology, equipment, increased testing and human resources to continue to fight Covid-19 is also of paramount importance.

Once again, this incredible community came together to support us in our mission to provide world-class healthcare.” Mirella Cameran-Reilly, Director of Brand Experience and Events at the Southampton Hospital Foundation, adds, “We couldn’t ask for a better group of supporters. Everyone was committed to continuing to support SBSH as well as all the local businesses we worked with to put on this year’s event. All our table hosts dived into hosting micro-galas at home and they and their guests had a lot of fun doing so.”

Hollis Forbes, SBSH donor and Summer Party host says, “The idea was brilliant and brilliantly executed. It was wonderful to receive deliveries during the day and evening from all these local businesses we were able to support through this concept. There’s never been a more important time than now to support the hospital and its new facilities.”

The SBSH Summer Party is hosted by the Southampton Hospital Foundation and is usually located on hospital grounds on Wickapogue Road in Southampton. Attendees have topped 1,000 people in previous years and all guests enjoy cocktails, dinner and dancing, and an auction at the annual event. Cameran-Reilly continues, “The usual scale of the event necessitates us using vendors from out of our local area.

This year, the logistics of the micro-galas enabled us to work with many smaller companies, all of which are based out here on the East End. The support the hospital received during the height of the pandemic was breath-taking. Companies and individuals were donating to the hospital in whatever capacity they could, in order to support the fight against the pandemic. The restructuring of the Summer Party gave us an opportunity for us to put our event expenditure back into the local community.” This year, due to Covid-19, the oldest and longest running Hamptons fundraiser, the SBSH Annual Summer Party, reinvented itself to enable donors to enjoy the annual event while adhering to social distancing guidelines.

Patrons were encouraged to host up to 10 people in their homes, while adopting all health and safety guidelines. SBSH worked with local caterer Janet O’Brien and local companies such as Amagansett Sea Salt and Southampton Soap Company to deliver a handmade wooden party box (created by Kim Jon Designs) to all table hosts. Party boxes were filled to the brim with delicious hors d’oeuvres, sweets, and host gifts. Wölffer Estate Vineyard, as title sponsor, provided delicious red, white, and rose’ wines and tequilas from Mountaukila were accompanied by spicy Margarita mix. Bloomberg Philanthropies and Jenny and John Paulson were Chairman’s Sponsors.

SBSH worked with Tutto Il Giorno’s Southampton and Sag Harbor restaurants, Calissa, Stone Creek Inn and 75 Main to deliver nearly 400 meals to table hosts from Westhampton to East Hampton. Sag Harbor Florists, Kim Jon Designs and Anchor & Bloom Florists delivered floral bouquets to decorate the tables. Hosts and their guests joined the ‘7 Minutes at 7pm’ virtual toast to celebrate the night’s honorees, the Healthcare Heroes of SBSH and watch a video which recapped the hospital’s experience of COVID-19 through the eyes of the frontline workers.

The video is available for viewing on the hospital’s YouTube channel: Local philanthropists and hospital supporters, Jim and Hollis Forbes (Southampton Hospital Association (SHA) Trustee), Laura Lofaro-Freeman (SHA Trustee), Cindy and Ladd Willis, Kristen & Joe Farrell, Melanie and John Wambold (SHA Trustee), Ann LaWall, Nancy Stone, Ann Grimm, Jean Little (SHA Trustee), Howard Lorber (Southampton Hospital Foundation Chair) and Susan Bourdeau, Ken Wright (SHA Chair), Margo & John Catsimatidis, Margo and Jimmy Nederlander and Andy Sabin all hosted their own ‘Gala in your Garden’ in support of SBSH.
