Haute Event: “Cocktails by the Bay” Hosted By Actress Joan Allen

On Saturday July 30th,  Miracle House, a New York City charity that provides temporary housing, meals and advocacy to caregivers and patients coming to the city for critical medical treatment, celebrated its 11th Annual Cocktails by the Bay event was a beautiful evening and a great success. The evening was hosted by Tony-winning actress and ardent Miracle House supporter, Joan Allen, held at a private residence on the bay in Sag Harbor, New York.

The summer sunset cocktail party featured cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, music by Peter Martin Weiss & Jane Hastay, and spectacular silent auction. The auction continues to be one of the most highly anticipated shopping events of the entire season. This year, it included over 70 exciting packages including fantastic trips to Paris, Miami, as well as beautiful artwork and unique experiences, like a Libby Langdon design consultation, a “One Life to Live” walk on role, and many more. Following the cocktail party, sponsors enjoyed a private dinner “under the stars”, also hosted by Ms. Allen.

Cocktails by the Bay is my favorite event of the season,” said Allen.” It’s a fun night with family and friends on the beautiful bay in Sag Harbor where we celebrate the important work of Miracle House. Many families that stay at Miracle House would not be able to afford to come to New York for medical treatment if not for their vital services.”

All proceeds raised from Cocktails by the Bay go directly towards the Miracle House Caregiver and Patient Program.

Sponsors included Amy Chanos, Gioia DiPaolo, Steven and Susan Felsher, Jean Gordon and Len Fogge, Hans Li and Jennifer Kouvant, Gerry Logue and Sean Cassidy, Tim McGuire and Amy Rhodes, Carolyn Reidy, Michael Selleck, Cory Shields and Terry Coombs, Meredith Wagner, and Lynn Williams.
