This past Saturday, stylish Hamptonites gathered for the 13th Annual Midsummer Night Drinks, benefiting one of New York City’s most beloved charities, God’s Love We Deliver. For three hours, guests ate, drank and socialized at Villa Maria, the spectacular Water Mill estate of Louise and Vince Camuto. I was honored to attend the benefit, which takes place every summer at a unique
home in the Hamptons.
Vicente Wolf and David Kleinberg, as well as
Architectural Digest Editor in Chief and board member, Margaret Russell. Fashion favorites like Tory Burch and Dennis Basso mixed, mingled and tasted divine hors d’oeuvres by Canard Inc., while
D.J. Karin Ward provided a selection of funky tunes as background music. Simple white
peonies by The Bridgehampton Florist dressed the neutral linens on cocktail
height tables. Guests sipped flavorful specialty drinks like the Absolut Citron
Lemonade provided by Pernod Ricard USA.
God definitely delivered an evening of ideal weather for
this special occasion; the area had been soaked with rain just a day prior.
Tents were intended as a back-up plan, but the cool temperatures and lush green
foliage at the Camutos’ home created the perfect backdrop for this special
fundraiser and no tents were required.
