The Fantasia-themed party, which occurred on Saturday, August 1st, brought out several important businessmen and women including Southampton Hospital President and CEO Robert Chaloner, Southampton Hospital Foundation President Steve Bernstein, Benefit Chair Jean Remmel FitzSimmons, and numerous more.
Emceed by television journalist, Chuck Scarbourough helped kick off the soiree that was transformed into a timeless black and white masterpiece. Beautifully executed and designed by the imagination and creativity of Tony Urrutia, guests attending the event were in for a haute affair. While taking in the simplistic and elegant design of this year’s party, people enjoyed a charming dinner catered by Robbins Wolfe Eventeurs. During and after their meal, attendees danced to music by the Alex Donner Orchestra that kept everyone on their feet.
The night also held a live auction that included fine jewelry from LJ Cross, a New York based luxury goods company that exudes luxe femininity, informal elegance, and soft modernism, and House of Murat. During the event, Chaloner thanked everyone for the overwhelming support shown at the party. He shared his excitement about the partnership with Stony Brook and for the upcoming Capital Campaign, which will be led by Howard Lorber, to build a new Southampton Hospital.
The Southampton Hospital’s Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department, is the sole provider of emergency care on the South Fork, treating more than 25,000 people annually. It is this reason why the important event brought out supports including Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley, Congresswoman Carolyn Moloney along with many others.
The Southampton Hospital provided an incredible event that was captivating for all people who attended to support the Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department. Other than enjoying the décor, food, music, and dancing, the event raised needed funds to continue the incredible work done by the staff at the hospital.
