Performers Announced For City Of Hope Gala Honoring BMI’s Frances Preston

Posted in News on October 11, 2000

Michael Bolton, James Ingram and Jon Secada will perform at the City of Hope's annual Spirit of Life Award presentation to BMI President & CEO Frances W. Preston at a gala dinner October 19 at the Barker Hangar, Santa Monica Airport. Producer/composer David Foster is serving as Musical Producer.

The dinner, part of the Music and Entertainment Industry Group's annual fund-raising effort, benefits the California medical and research center. Since the group was founded more than 20 years ago, it has raised more than $30 million in support of City of Hope programs.

The City of Hope was founded in 1913 as a haven for those stricken with tuberculosis. Today, the center stands on a 108-acre campus at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains and has become an internationally recognized medical and research facility.
