Jean Shafiroff, Chair of Southampton Hospital's 55th Annual Summer Party, hosted a kickoff luncheon for the annual fundraiser at Le Cirque in New York City on Thursday, May 9, 2013. Joining Shafiroff at the kickoff was Honorary Chair Audrey Gruss, Southampton Hospital President and CEO Robert S. Chaloner, and Southampton Hospital Foundation President Steven M. Bernstein to welcome nearly 100 supporters of the Hospital to the renowned restaurant. During the event, Master of Ceremonies, Chuck Scarborough, spoke of the importance of Southampton Hospital's presence in the communities of Long Island's East End.

Shafiroff noted the importance of supporting the Hospital saying, "The Hamptons is our home and we depend on Southampton Hospital to provide excellent care for those in need, particularly in an emergency."

Audrey Gruss, who along with her husband Martin have donated $5 million to the Southampton Hospital to create a new Heart and Stroke Center introduced the futuristic theme of the August 3 Summer Party with news that the hospital's partnership with ArtSouthampton will allow this year's event to take place in an air-conditioned tent, with décor designed by Antony Todd. ArtSouthampton dealers who will be exhibiting work prior to the Summer Party, have already planned to donate a portion of their proceeds from sold work to a variety of healthcare initiatives within the hospital. This year's Summer Party will benefit The Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department & The Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart and Stroke Center.
