Jean Shafiroff





Hamptons power player Jean Shafiroff, who is best known for her philanthropic impact, can be found hosting, chairing and receiving high honors at exclusive galas and events for numerous charitable causes throughout Summer 2018.

Stony Brook Southampton Hospital is recognized by the NYS Department of Health as a provisional Level III adult trauma center, the first one on Long Island’s East End. This designation enables the Hospital to provide care to the most critically injured patients. During the summer season when the regional population swells, it is even more critically important that trauma care be accessible close by. Faster treatment for trauma patients can mean the difference between life and death, so support for this essential service is vital

Sebonack Club House
Situated on 300 acres in Southampton, NY, overseeing both National Golf Club and Shinnecock Hills Golf Course, the Sebonack Golf Club features holes that offer panoramic views of Long Island’s Great Peconic Bay and Cold Spring Pond. The visual impact of the water vistas competes for the golfer’s eye with the rolling fairways, expansive bunkers and waste dunes, and undulating greens that present tricky swales and burrows. Meant to look as if manicured by time, Sebonack appears to have fashioned itself from the wild terrain.


Jack Nicklaus and Tom Doak, two designers with dramatically different styles, have used the natural contours and features of the land to create a unique look. The result is that Sebonack looks quite different from its illustrious neighbors and provides a strong golfing challenge for players of all calibers.


The Museum is a 501c3 registered with the IRS as EIN # 11-6027807 and with a charter from NYS’s Department of Education as an educational facility. Donations are deductible except for $265 per person for tournament, $75 for the cocktail party.
