The Michael Bolton Charities held “An Evening Under the Stars” fundraising dinner and auction in Bridgehampton, NY on Saturday, August 20th, 2016. This year’s honorees, receiving the Michael Bolton Lifetime Achievement Award, were Joe and Ali Torre of The Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation for their commitment to ending domestic violence. The intimate evening, benefitting The Michael Bolton Charities, was produced by celebrity event planner Larry Scott of Lawrence Scott Events.

Not only did the talented Larry Scott produce the enchanting evening, but he donated the décor and services for the private fundraising event. The tent space was reminiscent of a starry night sky as crystals hanging from standing chandeliers, on the buffet table, glittered in the blue-hued lights. Metal lamps and white urns decorated each table, next to small white plants adding to the elegant ambiance of the evening.

Guests enjoyed dinner, dancing and an award ceremony hosted by Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. Michael Bolton, Grammy Award winning singer and social activist, headlined the evening performing classic hits. “An Evening Under the Stars” was made possible thanks to sponsors: Lawrence Scott Events, JBialsky Design & Development, Hamptons Magazine, Sabrina & Jahn Levin, Sammi & Scott Seltzer, Bespoke Real Estate, John and Lenora Klein, Lori Shabtai, Gale Sitomer, Susan Almrud & Sebastian Beck Almrud, Creative Design Landscaping, Inspirato, La Croix, and John Sills & Elizabeth Papadopolous, and Linda & Larry Weiss.
