It’s the end of another remarkable social season in Saratoga, with some standout moments we’ll never forget.

The Double H Ranch held its 25th Anniversary Gala at the end of June, and it kicked off the summer with such a bang, we’re still thinking about it. With a record-breaking 954 attendees, the night brought in hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Ranch.

Also unforgettable was Opening Day Eve at Siro’s Cup, when amid a 1,200-guest crowd we spotted the impeccably dressed John and Marylou, out to support the Center for Disability Services. The evening raised $200,000 for the center, and seeing The Queen of Saratoga out on the town only made the night more memorable.

Our August was a blur, but the long-awaited Saratoga Hospital Summer Gala didn’t disappoint. A perfect “Adirondack Summer” night, the gala raised $370,000 for the hospital’s Community Health Center and the 1,080-guest crowd left with auction prizes from Hamilton tickets to exotic trips. And again, a Marylou sighting paired with her surprise $50,000 donation topped off a wonderful summer of giving.
