STARS OUT TO SHINE
Oprah, Goldie Hawn and more to visit Vancouver for David Foster’s fundraising gala
They don’t call it Hollywood North for nothing. The starstudded guest list for David Foster’s 30th annual Miracle Gala and Concert continues to grow with celebrity heavyweights Oprah, Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler and Goldie Hawn confirmed to visit Vancouver later this month.
The David Foster Foundation’s marquee event raises funds each year to support families who often have to travel to other cities so that their children can undergo life-saving organ transplants. The foundation has helped more than 1,100 Canadian families cover their non-medical expenses such as travel to cities where the pediatric facilities are located, mortgage or rent payments, car payments and more.
This year’s event will also feature Dr. Phil, Jay Leno, Bo Derek, B.C.’s Carly Rae Jepsen and The Tenors. Performers for the concert portion of the event include Tyler, Robin Thicke, Leno, the Tenors, Matteo Bocelli and Laura Bretan.
