GLWD 19th Annual Midsummer Night
On Saturday, June 15th, three hundred guests attended 19th Annual Midsummer Night Drinks benefiting God’s Love We Deliver at the historic Samuel Parrish house, est. 1889 in Southampton, NY. This signature event supports God’s Love We Deliver, the only organization of its kind that cooks and home delivers 1.8 million nutritious, individually tailored meals annually to clients living with severe illnesses, their children and senior caregivers.
“We look forward to Midsummer Night Drinks every year,” says David Ludwigson, Vice President & Chief Development Officer of God’s Love We Deliver. “It’s a special way for our guests to support God’s Love and kick off the summer season with a really fun event.”
Guests bid on God’s Love program items such as meals for one year for a person living with HIV/AIDS or the special holiday meals that God’s Love We Deliver sends to their clients.
Guests left the beautiful evening with “Chuck’s Famous Brownies,” baked with love by Chuck the Baker, who has been the baker for God’s Love more than 28 years.
God’s Love is the New York metropolitan area’s leading provider of life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people living with severe illnesses. All of the agency’s services are provided free to clients, and full of love. In its history of more than 34 years, God’s Love We Deliver has never had a waiting list. Because the demand for the services of God’s Love has grown more than 135% in ten years, this year’s Midsummer Night Drinks was more important than ever.
