Held for the first time in the air-conditioned Art Southampton pavilion on the Elks Club Grounds in Southampton, the Summer Party delighted guests with reflective wall d├ęcor and glimmering candlelight in the space re-imagined by designer Antony Todd. Guests danced to the music of the Alex Donner Orchestra and enjoyed an elegant dinner catered by Robbins Wolfe Eventeurs. Funds raised by this year’s Summer Party provide critical support
for the Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department and the new Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart and Stroke Center. Southampton Hospital is such a important institution in The Hampton's and their gala every year brings in needed dollars to be at the forefront of  Medical Technology.  As always, everyone came out to support this great event.
