"A Night To Benefit Haiti" At The Thompson

by Chiara Atik · January 21, 2010

Jason Pomeranc's Thompson Hotels on both coasts held twin benefits last night in support of the American Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. Among the guests who helped raise the astounding $55k in funds were Russell Simmons, Whitney Port, Olivia Palermo, Ali Wise, Derek Blasberg, Fabiola Beracasa, Andres Santo Domingo, Tinsley Mortimer, Vito Schnabel, Rachelle HruskaZani Guggelman, Becka Diamond, Joe Zee, Daphne Oz, Johannes Huebl, Julie Henderson, Lily Donaldson, Lyman Carter, Roxy Olin, Neel Shah, and Stacey Bendet.

The event was DJ'd by Mark Ronson (whose sister, Samantha DJ'd at the LA event) Jus-Ske, and Messkid. Guests were asked to donate a suggested $20, but many contributed far beyond that in donation boxes located around the bar areas.
