Parrish Midsummer Gala

Southampton - The Parrish Art Museum's Midsummer Party, a highlight of the Hamptons summer season, will take place on Saturday, July 9. This year's gala will honor the Parrish's Founding Partners, who have for more than a decade donated generously for endowments for curatorial and education programs and for planning and construction of the new Herzog & de Meuron-designed museum in Water Mill. This year's Midsummer Party Co-Chairs are Museum Trustees Deborah Bancroft, Etta Froio, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Adam Sender, and David Wassong .

Always a sell-out, the Midsummer Party begins with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. and dinner at 8 p.m. in an air-conditioned tent in the Museum's historic arboretum. The fun continues with dessert, drinks, and dancing from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. The party draws approximately 500 dinner guests and 500 "After Ten" attendees - primarily affluent Hamptons second-homeowners and individuals with sophisticated tastes and interest in the visual arts.

Individual dinner tickets are $1,000 for Patrons, $2,500 for Benefactors. Tables are priced from $10,000 to $50,000. After Ten tickets cost $125 ($150 after June 26). For those who purchase tables, Benefactor tickets, or sponsorships, Adam Sender and his wife Lenore will host an exclusive cocktail reception at their home in Sag Harbor.

More information and tickets are available from the Special Events Office, 631-283-2118, ext. 42, or from the museum's website, parrishart.org. A list of founding partners follows:
