The Beach Ball! Southampton History Museum’s Summer Gala has been set for Saturday, July 6th from 6 to 8 pm, at the Thomas Halsey Homestead, 249 South Main St., Southampton.
Guests will first walk through Halsey House, said to be the oldest English-style wood frame house in New York State and Southampton’s oldest home. This year’s theme comes courtesy of the Estate of Roy Lichtenstein. The late artist’s iconic 1961 painting, Girl with Ball, will serve as the inspiration for the invitation design and gala tent décor.
The Annual Halsey House Gala typically welcomes more than 400 guests. There will be a full bar, generously provided by Herbert & Rist Wine & Liquor Shop, hors d’oeuvres prepared by Robbins-Wolfe Eventeurs, an enticing silent auction and an evocative beach party soundtrack courtesy of renowned DJ Joel of Jarrell Entertainment, all in an oval party tent set in the garden of Halsey House. A generous supply of rose wine has been donated by Whispering Angel.
Gala Chairs for this year’s celebration are Doug and Amy Halsey, James and Laura Lofaro Freeman, Kathleen King, Peter L. Hallock and Craig Mowry, Rome and Lisa Arnold and Will and Katie Milligan. This year’s Associate Gala Chair is Alexandra Halsey-Storch.
Tickets are $200 in advance, $250 day of event; 21-35 y.o. $100, $150 day of event. RSVP to (631) 283-2494 or click here.
