Jedediah Hawkins Inn
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Dining at Jedediah Hawkins Inn is a truly marvelous experience.  Chef Craig Atwood's culinary experience and expertise in creating delicious edible dishes was a delight and truly a treat to experience.

Surrounded by 22 acres of fragrant gardens and farmland, Jedediah Hawkins Inn is a luxurious North Fork boutique hotel, celebrated for its history, genuine hospitality, good food and good wine. Here you will want to stroll the gardens, enjoy a glass of wine in the gazebo or enjoy the surrounding vineyards, farms and beaches of the North Fork.

Captain Jedediah Hawkins built his home in 1863 in the popular Italianate style, complete with ornate architectural features and a belvedere. It was one of the finest residences on the North Fork. After having fallen into disrepair and becoming “haunted”, the house was saved from the wrecker’s ball and meticulously restored. The Inn, a cozy blend of traditional and contemporary design, reopened with a Decorator Show House. The New York State Historic Preservation Award confirms JHI’s investment in the community’s heritage and rejuvenation.

For information about dining and staying at this charming boutique hotel and inn please visit http://www.jedediahhawkinsinn.com/

Hagins & Mortimer Design, the newly launched venture of acclaimed interior designer Elizabeth Hagins and noted Art Advisor & Collector Richard Mortimer show ed the works of two well known painters - artists Christopher Milne and William Pagano at their recently opened design gallery at 9  Windmill Lane, Southampton, 11968. The exhibition set in the midst of important 20th Century  furniture and lighting opened with a reception for the artists on Saturday, August 9 from 5 pm to 7 pm. The show will continue through Monday, August 18. Milne's and Pagano's works can be seen Thursday through Monday from 12 to 6 and Sunday, 12 to 5.
 
 
Christopher Milne is a New York-based artist whose formal approach to art making is primarily concerned with painting. The nuanced underpinnings of his work are conceptually driven and through a decidedly self-aware use of artifice, Milne's work touches on themes of identity, superficiality, idealization and fantasy.  He earned a Bachelor's degree at NSCAD (Nova Scotia College of Art & Design University) in Fine Arts and Art History, has mounted two solo exhibitions, and has been included in numerous group exhibitions. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Financial Times: How to Spend It, ARTLOG as well as other publications and has been placed in private collections throughout the United States and abroad. Recently, he was a visiting artist at NYU Steinhardt School’s Fine Art graduate program. Milne lives and works in New York City and Water Mill, New York.
 
William Pagano is a New York based artist whose work explores architecture and its primary structural components, including volume, scale and light. Pagano earned a BA in art education from C.W. Post College and a MA in Art, from Long Island University. After 32 years in art education, Pagano has reestablished his studio practice. In 2013, Pagano had a solo exhibition with Sara Nightingale Gallery and has been included in numerous group shows including artMRKT Hamptons 2013. His work was also featured in the 2013 Hamptons Designer Showhouse.  Pagano lives and works in New York City and Water Mill, New York.
 
 
Hagins & Mortimer Design celebrates the glorious diversity of 20th century design, spanning the decades from the 1920s to the present.  Hagins & Mortimer Design features furniture that runs the style gamut from Art Deco to 1970s Brutalism.  The design gallery features luminaries of 20th century design such as T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Karl Springer, Paul McCobb, and Grosfeld House, among others. Lighting is another important part of the mix, and Murano glass from Barovier and Toso, Arteluce, Gio Ponti, and Mazzega are also featured as well as the firm's own custom upholstered pieces. Hagins & Mortimer Design offers interior design and art consultations by appointment.
 
Milne's and Pagano's works can be seen Thursday through Monday from 12 to 6 and Sunday, 12 to 5. Hagins Mortimer Design is located at 9 Windmill Lane, Southampton, NY 11968, 631-488-4310. For more information please contact

Guests gathered to celebrate Endless Summer The 56th Annual Southampton Hospital Summer Party.

I had a chance to chat with Hospital President and Chief Executive Office Rob Chaloner.
 
I inquired "Tell me what this theme is all about."  "Endless Summer" theme is very pleasant, a little more relaxed than in the past," Hospital President and Chief Executive Officer Bob Chaloner revealed.
 
The accomplishments have growing at a steady pace.

 "It's been a slow and steady climb up," Bob Chaolner revealed. These days, "waiting times in the emergency room are virtually non existent. We've got a lot of new equipment, including some ultrasound that we added this past year. There has been additional training and augmentation for the staff, as well. We just achieved a 95% Press Ganey patient satisfaction score in the emergency room that is just off the charts.

Laura Lofaro Freeman, Michael Kors and Douglas Elliman Real Estate served as Benefit, Fashion and Corporate Chairs for this years gala.
 
The night raised $1.5 million to provide critical support for the Jenny and John Paulson Emergency Department.
 
WNBC anchor Chuck Scarborough emceed the Hamptons fundraiser supported by Corporate Chair Douglas Elliman Real Estate and Fashion Chair Michael Kors.  Guests included Audrey and Martin Gruss, Dottie Herman, Southampton Village Mayor Mark Epley, New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr., New York State Senator Ken LaValle, Martin and Jean Shafiroff, Howard Lorber, Larry Wohl, Leesa Rowland and Jean Remmel FitzSimmons.
 
Supporters were greeted at the tents on Wickapogue and Old Town Road by nine artist-designed surfboards from the likes of Peter Max, Michael Dweck and Peter Tunney, which were provided by media partner Hamptons Magazine to support the cause and auctioned off on CharityBuzz.com. Guests danced to the music of the Alex Donner Orchestra and enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner catered by Robbins Wolfe Eventeurs under the gorgeous tents designed by Steven Stolman.  The night’s silent auction included fine jewelry from Sintessi and LJ Cross.

The Host Committee for the Sovereign Order of Malta's relief agency, Malteser International, held the inaugural Legacy of Hope Sunset Cocktail reception at the Southampton Historical Museum, 17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton, 11968 on Friday July 18 from 6 pm to 8 pm.

 
The event  celebrated the legacy of the ancient order, the Knights of the Sovereign   Order of Malta and Malteser International’s commitment to providing relief and dignity to those caught up in natural disasters or man-made crises.
 
 
The Order of Malta, the world’s oldest Christian charity founded in Jerusalem over 900 years ago, opened the first American branch of its humanitarian relief agency Malteser International last November. In 2013, Malteser International helped around 10 million people in 26 countries, delivering over $60 million in aid. The agency has provided emergency relief and recovery aid for nearly 60 years worldwide, responding to major crises such as the 2004 Asian Tsunami, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Hurricane Sandy in 2012, and more recently, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and the ongoing Syrian crisis. Malteser International helps the vulnerable and marginalized lead a healthy life with dignity, without distinction of religion, race or political persuasion.

 
Steven Krawciw, KM, of the Order of Malta's American Association and a resident of the Village of Southampton chaired the event with the assistance of a Host Committee comprised of prominent residents of The Hamptons, Long Island, New York City and Palm Beach. Committee member include Sherri & Joseph Abruzzes,  Cass Almendral, Maura Almy, Sandra Alvarado, Katherine & Gary Andreassen,  Angela Anton, Christopher Arnold, Eileen Duff Babcock, Kenneth Craig, KM, Ertel and Erin Dere,  Sara Herbert Galloway &  Barry Klarberg, Michael Gibbons, KM & Maureen Gibbons, DM, Lucia Hwong Gordon,  Constance Hunter, Ann & Vincent Madonia, Ms. Susan Madonia, Joanna Mincarelli, William Morosse, KM and Mar Morosse, DM,  Joyce Mullins - Jackson, Ann Rapp, Jean & Martin Shafiroff, Mark & Kim Standish,  Nancy Stone,  Father Michael Vetrano, Pastor, Basilica of Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary,  Dr. Frank and Myra Weiser and Daniela Zahradnikova.
 
The evening included a special exhibition of photos of various Malteser International's projects including its work in the Philippines following the devastating typhoon and closer to home their efforts to help Long Islanders post-Sandy. In addition, there was a display of rarely seen memorabilia from the Knights of Malta’s private archives including a replica of the 900-year-old Papal Bull authorizing the mission of the Knights of Malta. Delectable hors d'oeuvres from 230 Elm were served along with  ales & lagers courtesy of Southampton Publick House and superb wines. 

 
Highlights of the evening  also included a silent auction of luxury goods and one-of-a-kind experience such as a sumptuous tote bag from designer Berry Brown, luxury fashion from Space 16, a gift basket of bath items from Joanna Mincarelli's stylish emporium Erika's Place, VIP Passes to Art Southampton, the premier contemporary and modern art fair for acquiring investment quality art in the Hamptons, a glamorous white cashmere summer shawl from Christopher Fischer, precious jewels form the renowned Tamara Commolli and gift certificates to many of the area's finest dining establishments.
