The Unconditional Love Gala, hosted by the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation, is one of the biggest events of the Hamptons’ season, so in order to raise awareness for it, the event’s chairwoman, Jean Shafiroff, hosted a wine tasting summer kickoff party on May 23rd. Guests were invited to show their support for the no-kill shelter and its successful spay/neuter initiatives and to get ready for the upcoming season with a few glasses of the best red from OneHope, Raphael, Palm Bay, Herbert & Rist and Fiol Prosecco.

Foundation board president Jonathan McCann and volunteer coordinator Regina Martini were on hand at the event to speak about the shelter’s great work, before guests, including Southampton Mayor Mark Epley and his wife Marianne, got the chance to interact and play with some of the adorable puppies from the shelter.

Other notable animal lovers in attendance were Susan Allen; Clif and Raya Knight; Town supervisor Anna Throne-Holst; Leesa Rowland; Larry Wohl; Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin; Sheila Rosenblum; Janna Bullock; Emanuele Fiore; Elaine Sargent; Dr. Kenneth Mark; and fitness trainer Louis Coraggio; as well as Martin and Liz Shafiroff; Victor de Souza; Cheri Kaufman; and Bill Sclight.
