God's Love We Deliver will welcome a few hundred of its closest friends, including Louis Bradbury, Robby Browne, Jerry Bruckheimer, Linda Fairstein, Calvin Klein, Terrence Meck, Richard Mishaan, Esther Newberg, Margaret Russell, and Vicente Wolf, on Saturday, June 15 - when the 19th Annual Midsummer Night Drinks takes over the historic Samuel Parrish house (est. 1889) in Southampton.

"God's Love We Deliver is thrilled to host our summer soiree Midsummer Night Drinks at the historic Samuel Parrish house," shared David Ludwigson, Vice President & CEO of God's Love We Deliver.

From 6 to 9 p.m., attendees will enjoy refreshing cocktails, delicious hors d'oeuvres, fabulous conversation, and more, while supporting God's Love We Deliver.

Samuel Longstreth Parrish (1849-1932) was born into a prominent Philadelphia Quaker family. While studying at Harvard College, he became enamored with Italian Renaissance masterpieces and began avidly collecting art in the early 1880s. His family had a home in Southampton, which he visited regularly, and eventually became an active member of the community. In 1896, while traveling through Italy, he decided to build a museum in Southampton to showcase his quickly expanding collection. While initially Parrish's The Art Museum at Southampton was private, after his death the Village of Southampton received the building, grounds, and founding collection as a gift from his estate. It was renamed the Parrish Memorial Art Museum, now known as the Parrish Art Museum, and eventually opened to the public.

"We look forward to our event every year, as it's a great way to kick off the Hamptons summer season while spending time with and thanking our wonderful supporters," Ludwigson added.

Tickets to the 19th Annual Midsummer Night Drinks start at $500.

God's Love originally launched as an HIV/AIDS service organization, but eventually expanded its reach - offering assistance to those who suffer from over 200 individual diagnoses. The non-sectarian organization not only prepares meals for those living with severe illnesses and delivers the food right to clients' homes, but it also provides nutrition counseling - all of which is offered at no cost. God's Love is the New York metropolitan area's primary provider of life-sustaining meals, which Registered Dietitian Nutritionists create specifically for each client. Additionally, the organization also provides meals for the children and senior caregivers of its clients.

Each year the organization serves over 7,200 clients, children & caregivers. 90 percent of God's Love clients live below the poverty level and 70 percent reside in some of New York City's poorest and most underserved neighborhoods.
