One of the first of many charitable events to come our way this summer, a barbecue party is to take place on Saturday at a private residence in Southampton as a benefit for Stony Brook Southampton Hospital's Edie Windsor Healthcare Center. The fund-raiser will be from 1 to 4 p.m., and tickets start at $125.
The center, located in Hampton Bays, supports the medical needs of the L.G.B.T.Q.+ community and provides care and prevention education for those at risk of contracting H.I.V. or who have been diagnosed with it.
Ms. Windsor, who died in 2017, was a prominent civil rights activist and part-time Southampton resident. She was the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court case United States v. Windsor, which resulted in a landmark 2013 legal victory for same-sex marriage. Her wife, Judith M. Kasen-Windsor, will host the barbecue on Saturday.
Tickets and more information can be had by calling 631-726-8700, emailing [email protected], or visiting southampton.stonybrookmedicine.edu.
