Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards recently held a private black tie fundraiser at the home she shares with Mauricio Umansky to benefit the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital, and Bravo cameras were on hand to film the event for an episode that will air in the upcoming season. Guests included most of the RHOBH cast, as well as Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kris Jenner. And, the world’s most famous momager was one of the first celebrity guests to make a donation.
Bravo contacted Dan and Laura Dotson – the auctioneers from the hit reality series Storage Wars – and asked them to be the celebrity auctioneers for the fundraiser. And, Jenner reportedly donated $25,000 – the largest donation of the night – to set the pace for the evening.

By the end of the night, Richards had raised more than $100,000 for the hospital. And, during the evening, guests enjoyed amazing food like salmon and steak, drank cocktails featuring SoCal rum, and listened to live music from Carnie Wilson, Wendy Wilson, and Chynna Phillips – AKA 90s pop group Wilson Phillips.
In addition to Richards’ RHOBH co-stars and the KarJenner matriarch, Richards’ sisters Kathy Hilton and Kim Richards also attended, as well as Richards and Jenner’s good friend Faye Resnick.
Lisa Rinna reportedly donated $1,000, and Botched star Paul Nassif was also bidding on items. During the event, Richards told the crowd that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is a special hospital because not only does it have the best doctors, surgeons, and specialists, but they also care for every child regardless of their family’s ability to pay or their immigration status.
“Last Saturday my husband & I held a charity event at our home for @childrensla,” wrote Richards on Instagram. “It was such a special night. We all had so much fun while raising money for such an important cause. THANK YOU to everyone for coming out, being so generous and making the night a success 🙏❤️”
Richards and her cast mates – including newbies Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke – are currently filming new episodes, and Season 10 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere on Bravo in the spring of 2020.
