After Mr. Kelly welcomed guests, he asked Mr. Chaloner to the stage, who revealed that after a decade of discussion, Southampton Hospital was officially a part of the Stony Brook Medicine health care system, which allows patients at the hospital access to significant resources and advanced technology. The collaboration includes a new cardiac catheterization laboratory, part of The Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart & Stroke Center and the Phillips Family Cancer Center, which will make top-level cancer care more readily available to East End residents.

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.

Jean Shafiroff and Partick McMullan hosted the party to raise awareness about the discrimination against pit bulls. The Shafiroff's two pit bulls, Daisy and Bella, were both rescued from Animal Care and Control in NYC. Both dogs were on ACC's list to be euthanized. Jean spoke about all the joy Daisy and Bella brings to the Shafiroff home. "Sadly, the first dogs to be euthanized at most shelters are pit bulls. They are also the ones that find it most difficult to be adopted. Public opinion against pit bulls must be changed. Pit bull fighting is a crime in the United States and those involved in such fights are subject to prosecution," said Jean. Southampton Animal Shelter is ranked among the top 10% of Shelters in the United States. It has a live release rate of 98%.
