The Southampton home of NBC 4’s Chuck Scarborough and wife Ellen will be the site of the Ellen Hermanson Foundation’s Summer Solstice Celebration Benefit next month.

The event, on Saturday, June 21, will honor Jean Shafiroff, philanthropist and humanitarian, and Robert Chaloner, president and CEO of Southampton Hospital.

East Hampton resident Julie Ratner created the foundation in 1997 after her sister, Ellen Hermanson, passed away due to breast cancer. The foundation has raised more than $3 million to help those living with the terrible disease.

Shafiroff is a celebrated philanthropist who has donated much of her time and money to various charities and causes. She has also been named by Gotham Magazine as one of the “100 most powerful New Yorkers.”

Chaloner took the helm of Southampton Hospital in 2006. The hospital is home to the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center, which has received designation as a “Breast Imaging Center of Excellence” by the American College of Radiology.

Tickets vary from $175 to $2,500.
