At Saturday night's 12th annual Midsummer Night Drinks hundreds of friends and supporters gathered at Woodhouse Park, the stunning East Hampton home of Tony Ingrao and Randy Kemper, for a wonderful evening of fun, food and cocktails, all benefiting God's Love We Deliver. This signature event supports one of New York City's most beloved charities, the only organization of its kind that cooks and home delivers nutritious meals to clients living with severe illnesses, their children and senior caregivers.
Seen at the event were Donny Deutsch, Tamara Tunie and Gregory Generet, Alexandra Cohen, Aviva and Reid Drescher, Margaret Russell, Scott Bruckner, Jonah Disend, Alan Rogers, Jon & Rebecca Bond, Dennis Basso, Jon Gilman & Brad Learmonth, Bill & Jessica Koenigsberg, Mark Lanspa, Mark Moskowitz & Yuval Hadadi, Jeff Pfeifle, Robby Browne, Ford Huniford, Bruce Horten & Aaron Lieber, Peter Huffine, Gerald Madigan & Richard Pipia, Steve Markov & Jeff Meleski, Laura Michalchshyn, Lisa Sherman and Vicente Wolf.
At "The Love Table," guests were invited to "give 'til you smile" and received a groovy item donated by JoNathan Adler for each gift to God's Love.
Throughout the evening, in between dining, laughing and talking, guests also enjoyed the photo booth generously donated by Dirty Sugar Live. The evening's "Downton Abbey" theme was made complete by the photography set-up which included parasols, bowler hats and other clothing and props from the era.
Delicious passed hors d'oeuvres such as curried large gulf shrimp, deviled eggs and crab cakes were catered by Canard, Inc. along with a selection of crudités, cheeses and tea sandwiches; guests also enjoyed a carving station and finger sweets. Pernod Ricard USA generously donated all beverages at the bar including the event's specialty drinks, Absolut® Outrageous Cocktail, Absolut® Pomegranate Martini and Midsummer Night Drinks Beefeater® Gin & Tonic, all delicious concoctions for the warm summer evening. Guests danced the night away to the music compiled and spun by DJ Karin Ward.
