As one of the biggest events in the Hamptons it is no surprise that the sold-out event raised a little over $1.5 million. Funds that will support the Jenny & John Paulson Emergency Department which is the first Level III Trauma Center on the East End and services the community 24/7, year-round. In 2018, the ED had over 21,900 visitors, with almost half those visits occurring during Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Each year the hospital honors different supporters, groups or individual philanthropists and this year it was only fitting that Martin and Jean Shafiroff were honored at the 61st Annual Summer Party. Mr. and Mrs. Shafiroff are longtime supporters of the hospital and Mrs. Shafiroff has chaired several of the galas while raising an impressive of money and a few eyebrows with her impeccable style. This year she opted for a strapless Carolina Herrera gown as she arrived for the occasion.
