On Friday, July 28, French Heritage Society hosted its inaugural Summer Soirée at the home of Maria and Kenneth Fishel in Bridgehampton. The festive evening took the form of a cocktail party around the pool and under the tent at the Fishel residence with art on the table provided by Christofle.

The soirée’s host committee included CeCe Black, Maria Fishel, French Heritage Society Board Chairman Elizabeth F. Stribling, and Ann Van Ness, and was held in the presence of Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy in the United States Gaëtan Bruel. Golden Benefactor supporters included Patricia Cossutta Arostegui and Egle Rincon, Sharon Bush and Bob Murray, Melody Clarke, Alina and Rich Dovere, Mitchell Draizin, Rosann Gutman, Brenda Howard, Helen K. King, Bonnie Comley and Stewart F. Lane, Judy McLaren, Frank Morgan and Brent Feigenbaum, Maria Pessino, Nicole Salmasi, Odile de Schiétère-Longchampt, Maria Pessino, Jean and Martin Shafiroff, Lauren and Geoff Smart, and Tom Brown and Missy Van Buren-Brown. Young Patron Benefactors included Elena Ayot, Stark D. Kirby, Jr. and Collin Kearby, and Julissa Perez. Generous support for the evening was also given by Nanci and Nick Lanni.

Proceeds from the Summer Soirée provide support for FHS’s mission to ensure that the treasures of our shared French architectural and cultural heritage survive to inspire future generations. Additional funds were also raised for FHS’s restoration grant to the Grand Palais in Paris, which will host fencing and taekwando during the 2024 Olympics.
