The Co-chairs of the Junior Committee for the Southampton Hospital Annual Summer Party Stephanie Hessler, Ali Edwards and Lauren Bush hosted an elegant summer evening cocktail reception for The Hamptons junior social set at a private home in Southampton’s estate section.

The 52nd Annual Summer Party, An Enchanted Evening, will take place on Saturday, August 7, from 6:30 to 11 p.m. Chaired by Jean Shafiroff, the event will take place under the tents on Wickapogue Road in Southampton. The Honorary Jewelry Chairman is Tiffany & Co. and the Honorary Corporate Chairman is Barclays Wealth. As in past years, the evening will benefit the Hospital’s Department of Emergency Medicine.

“Our Summer Party Chair, Jean Shafiroff, and her dedicated team of Vice Chairs, has done an extraordinary job of engaging old and new friends of the hospital, raising funds and promoting the party, proceeds of which will support the critical services provided by The Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department,” said Southampton Hospital Foundation President Steven M. Bernstein.

Summer Party attendees will dance to the music of The Alex Donner Orchestra under a huge tent transformed by the imagination and creativity of Tony Urrutia, and enjoy an elegant catered dinner by Robbins Wolfe Eventeurs. Also featured will be the popular silent auction and a raffle of fabulous and extravagant trips and prizes.
