Last night Dennis Basso and Michael Cominotto put together a black tie gala for Silver Hill Hospital at Cipriani 42nd Street. With the help of their friends, Michael and Dennis raised more than $1 million, which will go toward young people who can’t afford the rehab facility. After a detox program at the hospital, if a patient wants to stay on, he or she must to commit to four weeks at $1,000 a night. The cause is very important to Michael — Silver Hill saved his life. Last night in his honor, Silver Hill named a house on their property after him.
Everyone showed up last night to support including Natalie Cole, Shafi Roepers, Jamie Tisch, Tory Burch, Samantha Boardman, Rena Sindi, Perri Peltz, Danielle Ganek, Bettina Zilkha, Christine Leone, Al Roker, Caryn Zucker, Derek Blasberg, Lyle Maltz, Neil Sedaka and Joan Collins. DJ Cassidy performed so the guests could dance the night away.
