They don’t call it Hol­ly­wood North for noth­ing.

The star-stud­ded guest list for David Foster’s 30th an­nual Mir­a­cle Gala and Con­cert con­tin­ues to grow with celebrity heavy­weights Oprah, Aero­smith’s Steve Tyler, ac­tress Goldie Hawn and Sarah, Duchess of York, 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.

Tick­ets for the event start at $49.

They are avail­able on­line at david­fos­ter­mir­a­clecon­cert.com.
