Silver Hill Hospital will host its ninth annual fall benefit, the Giving Hope Gala, on Nov. 12 in New York City.

This year, the hospital will honor Emmy Award-winning talk show host and Ridgefield resident Dick Cavett, who is an advocate for electroconvulsive therapy to treat his clinical depression, with the 2018 Visionary Award.

The award honors an individual who has inspired others and helped remove the stigma of mental illness or addiction.

In addition, professional golfer, author and mental health activist Michael Wellington will be the evening’s guest speaker.
