The heavy hitters came out in droves for this year’s Southampton Hospital Gala on Saturday night, which raised more than $1.3 million in funding for the the Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department at the hospital.

More than 600 supporters showed up for the 58th annual summer party, including benefit Chairs Hollis and Jim Forbes, Bill Ford, Marigay McKee, President and CEO of Southampton Hospital Robert Chaloner, and Southampton Hospital Foundation President Steve Bernstein, Chuck Scarborough, John Paulson, Southampton Mayor Mark Epley and his wife Marianne, Jean and Martin Shafiroff, Lee Zeldin, Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman and his lady, Julie Stone, Julie Ratner, Somers and Jonathan Farkas, Stony Brook’s Dr. Kenneth Kaushansky and Douglas Elliman Real Estate Chairman Howard M. Lorber, who is also President of the Board of Trustees of Southampton Hospital Foundation.

The event was catered by “Live Like Larry-famed Lawrence Scott Events, which transformed the tent with lavish buffets, dramatic table centerpieces of gold shells overflowing with beautiful orchids, delicate flowers and woodsy ferns while music from the Groove Society kept everyone on their feet.  I think I saw a Koch brother there too but can’t be positive. What a night!
