Three hundred guests attended Saturday night’s 18th Annual Midsummer Night Drinks benefiting God’s Love We Deliver and honoring Sam Shahid at Listowel, a 12,000 sq. ft. private home in Water Mill, New York.

This signature event supports God’s Love We Deliver, the only organization of its kind in New York City that cooks and home delivers 1.8 million nutritious, individually tailored meals annually to clients living with severe illnesses, their children and senior caregivers.

Guests bid on God’s Love program items such as funding meals for one year for a person living with HIV/AIDS or meals for a mother living with breast cancer and her children for six months.

They enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres and a raw bar by Canard, Inc., along with signature cocktails by Dante NYC from Campari. Flowers by Alexandra Abuza Floral & Garden.
