East Hampton - The Hetrick-Martin Institute held its Thirteenth Annual School's Out benefit in the Hamptons on Saturday, June 9, 2012. The benefit which raised over $200,000 for at-risk and homeless LGBTQ youth was held at the East Hampton home of Peter Wilson and Scott Sanders.

The event was supported by A|X Armani Exchange and attracted a large crowd of celebrity and fashion-industry heavy weights. Guests danced to music by DJ Shawn Lisle while enjoying h'orderves passed around by waitors dresses shirts and khaki shorts A|X Armani Exchange.

The benefit was chaired by Brendan Monaghan and Bobby Graham. Attendees included Bravo's Andy Cohen, a long-time supporter of the organization, the Barry's Bootcamp trainers including Harley Rodriguez, Natalie Raitano and COO Joey Gonzalez. Shoe mogul Brian Atwood and his partner Dr. Jake Deutsch were also at the benefit heard excitedly discussing their marriage plans for next year.

The School's Out benefit raises funds for the 2,500 at-risk and homeless LGBTQ youth who turn to Hetrick-Martin Institute because they have been bullied out of their schools, kicked out of their homes or seeking a refuge where they can express themselves without fear, intimidation or harassment.

Every dollar donated to HMI during the month of June will be matched dollar-for-dollar to celebrate Pride and provide for the next generation of LGBTQ young people. The money during June will keep the organization's doors open throughout the summer.

Sorry peeps, many of us feel Andy Cohen is quickly slipping down the ladder cause like every other "wanna be" who finally makes some celeb friends and thinks they are A-list, and instead of sticking up for the truth and what is right, he is sitting with his so-called upper crust laughing at all of us little viewers who got him to where he is at!!!!
