Southampton Hospital has announced that this year’s Hamptons Designer Showhouse netted a $100,000 check to support its programs. 

For 15 years, the Hampton Designer Showhouse Foundation has brought together a group of designers from near and far to transform the rooms of a recently completed spec house into a real-life catalog of current design trends.

The completed house opens with a gala preview in mid-July and stays open to the public through Labor Day.

This year’s house was in a remote location on Old Sag Harbor Road, but clearly patrons were able to find it. 

The foundation has raised more than $1.3 million for the hospital since it started presenting the showhouse. Money is raised through the preview party, sponsorships, advertising in the showhouse journal, and daily admissions.
