Kicking off the Southampton Hospital’s 53rd Annual Summer Party, Patty and George Kraus hosted a cocktail reception at their lovely Southampton estate on June 25, 2011. The exclusive event—which was held for the supporters of the Southampton Hospital—included Jean Shafiroff, Chair, 53rd Annual Southampton Hospital Summer Party, Martin Shafiroff, Patty and George Kraus, Jean Remmel FitzSimmons, Chuck Scarborough, Robert S. Chaloner, Mary Katherine and Alex Navab, Ann and Arnold Jurdem, Christl and Ken Meszkat, Stephanie and Stephen Hessler, Mary Ann and Daniel Van Arsdale, D.O., Marion and Philip Piro, Jr., Raya and Clifton B. Knight, Sandra McConnell and Christopher Obetz.
This year’s Summer Party, “A Tropical Paradise,” will be chaired for the second year by Jean Shafiroff, who expressed her gratitude to this year’s committee members and Hospital staff for their hard work and support. “It is an honor for me to again chair this important event and we are anticipating another success!” Hospital President and CEO Robert S. Chaloner greeted guests, joking that “when staying in the Hamptons, the last place you would want to be is in a hospital!” He went on to say, “However, if you are ill, you will not find a better local hospital to take care of you. In the last several years, Southampton Hospital has completely renovated and expanded critical departments, including our Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department, the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center, the Kathleen
D. Allen Maternity Center and the Ed & Phyllis Davis Wellness Institute among other areas. Supporters like you have enabled quality healthcare in the Hamptons.”
The long-time tradition supports the Hospital’s Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department, which serves more than 25,000 residents and visitors annually on Long Island’s South Fork— the Emergency Department was named after the Paulsons in recognition of their generous support for the Hospital. Tiffany & Co. will serve as the Honorary Jewelry Chair, Barclay’s Wealth will serve as the Honorary Corporate Chair, Cushman and Wakefield will serve as the Honorary Commercial Real Estate Chair and Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate will serve as the Honorary Residential Real Estate Chair. The highly-anticipated Southampton Hospital’s 53rd Annual Summer Party will take place on Saturday, August 6, 2011 under the tents at the corner of Wickapogue and Old Town Roads in Southampton.
