Southampton Hospital's 52nd Annual Summer Party

Governor and Mrs. Patterson, Jenny and John Paulson and event chair Jean Shafiroff welcomed more than 1000 guests to Southampton Hospital’s 52nd Annual Summer Party on Saturday, August 7th.

Barclay’s Wealth served as Honorary Corporate Chair and Tiffany & Co. served as Honorary Jewelry Chair for the event which raised a historic $1.72 million to support the Hospital.

The sold out gala “demonstrated the depth of the community’s commitment to our Hospital and its extraordinary staff” said hospital President and CEO Robert S. Chaloner. “We are so very grateful to Jean Shafiroff for engaging so many friends and supporters to celebrate the importance of high quality community health care.” Proceeds from the event support the operations of Southampton Hospital’s recently opened Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department.

Summer Party guests gathered under the tents on Wickapogue Road in Southampton to dance to the music of The Alex Donner Orchestra, enjoy fine dining by Robbins Wolfe Eventeurs and savor the creative Enchanted Evening theme designed by Tony Urrutia. Highlighting the dinner program was a compelling address by Jenny Paulson who dedicated the Paulson family’s recent gift of $5 million in memory of her late father. The Paulson’s gift enabled the hospital to nearly double the size of its existing Emergency Department which cares for more than 25,000 patients annually.

Southampton Hospital is affiliated with Stony Brook University Medical Center and is a member of the East End Health Alliance.
