KUSA - A black tie affair was held Saturday night to benefit a new 12 story addition to the University of Colorado Hospital.
The new emergency floor is scheduled to open in April.
9NEWS entertainment reporter Kirk Montgomery attended the event, where he spoke to five time Grammy winner Dionne Warwick.
Warwick said that when the hospital asked her to perform she never considered a 'no.'
More than One Million dollars was raised Saturday night for the cause.
Next week marks the one year anniversary of the death of Whitney Houston, Warwick's cousin. Warwick declined to answer any questions about Houston.
