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.
