Lawrence Scott

Annual Southampton Hospital Gala
The Southampton Hospital hosted the 58th Annual Summer Party in support of Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department, the sole provider of emergency care in the South Fork. The exclusive party was designed and produced by celebrity event planner, Larry Scott of Lawrence Scott Events, and took place at the corner of Wickapogue Road and Old Town Road in Southampton, NY. Lawrence Scott Events’ parties are one-of-a-kind celebrations, and that was truly the case at the 58th Annual Summer Party, flooded with gold atmospheric lighting, and complimented by dark wood plus gold table accents. The room’s ambiance would bring the dessert table to guest’s attention as it included, to name a few, chocolate cake pops, chocolate drizzled scones and double chocolate cupcakes.

Throughout the unforgettable night, guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and dancing, while giving back during a silent auction and raffle orchestrated by the emcee, Chuck Scarborough. Benefit chairs included Hollis and James Forbes together with Marigay Mckee and Bill Ford.
