Thanks to the many hosts who have provided beautiful outdoor spaces for Eastern Long Island Hospital’s Annual Summer Gala, no two Galas are ever quite the same. Held each year on the second Saturday in August since 2001, this event has grown in popularity and is attended by more than 450 guests under an expansive tent. Guests enjoy a festive cocktail party atmosphere with sumptuous local cuisine that includes flavorful hors d’oeuvres , signature drinks, a full course dinner and dessert. Opportunities to bid on fabulous luxury prizes are available throughout the evening, and include vacation getaways, private sail excursions, restaurant experiences, theater tickets, spa packages and more. Sponsorship opportunities offer special recognition at the event and premiere seating. 

Our second Gala at Home will be available during the month of August. If you would like to host a Gala at home please call the Foundation Office at 631.477.5164 for available dates.
