Dorinda Medley Turned a Charity Event into the Ultimate Date Night

The #RHONY philanthropist cuddled up to her sweetheart at the event in NYC.

Dorinda Medley used her love of a good party for a good cause when she gathered up her closest pals for a little get-together at Bagatelle in New York City (as you may recall, Ramona Singer is a fan of the Miami outpost) on Wednesday. Dorinda hosted Celebrity Page's Holiday Party, which celebrated all things charity and her work with the anti-trafficking organization, BeautyForFreedom.org.

The event included a nice mix of downtown and uptown city dwellers who dined on small bites, sipped cocktails, and bid on the silent auction. Items up for auction included tickets to Watch What Happens Live, a dress from the Sonja Morgan New York collection, and a chance to hang out in the Berkshires with Dorinda, among other things. In addition to Dorinda's The Real Housewives of New York City crew, the event also included appearances from her daughter, Hannah Lynch, and her longtime love, John Mahdessian, which basically means that she turned the night into the perfect date night.

Dorinda was definitely feeling the love in the room as she addressed the crowd. "I'm so proud to be here. It's a great cause to raise money for," she told the room, before noting that she owed quite a lot to her "partner" John in helping to organize the event. "I couldn't have done it without him, really."

She ended her speech with this little bit of wisdom: "It's the year of giving back. It's the year of gratitude."
