David Foster event chairs named

Two people named as co-chairs for upcoming David Foster Foundation celebration in Victoria

Longtime volunteers and philanthropists Eric Charman and Michael (Benj) O’Connor will co-chair the David Foster Foundation’s 25th anniversary Miracle Concert and Galas, May 26, 2012.

Held at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, the Miracle Concert and Gala is a key celebration during a weekend that promises to bring some of North America’s brightest stars, including music producer David Foster, to Victoria.

“Having the expertise and clout of two of Victoria’s most outstanding citizens leading our gala event is a home run for us,” said Michael Ravenhill, CEO of the David Foster Foundation. “Between the two of them, Eric and Benj have raised millions of dollars for this community already. We have a significant fundraising goal, but with these two at the helm, I have no doubt we will get there.”

On May 26, Foster will bring back his popular Hitman Show for a Miracle Concert – held in conjunction with a star-studded David Foster Foundation gala grand opening weekend celebrating the rebirth of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, May 25 to 27. Concert tickets will be available in the new year.

In Canada, the David Foster Foundation supports families whose children are undergoing major organ transplants. Families receive support for non-medical expenses incurred when travelling away from their homes to be with their child during transplant.
