  David Foster Foundation
2017 Miracle Gala and Concert
For more than a decade, Executive Visions has partnered with David Foster and the David Foster Foundation to produce the Annual Miracle Gala and Concert. The event is a premier date on the calendar of influential Canadians, and brings
out the who’s who of the philanthropic, business and entertainment communities. In 2017, the Gala was held in Vancouver, BC at the Rogers Arena, and carried special significance because it marked the event’s 30th anniversary!
With the goal of raising funds to support Canadian families with children undergoing organ transplants, the event is produced
with a balance of fund-raising activities and entertainment. Attendees contribute in a number of ways, including Family Sponsorships and the wildly popular Foster Foundation Auction. The fund-raising portion of the program is a benchmark example in the world of charitable events, and a bevy of stars support the proceedings, including Oprah, Dr. Phil, Rick Hansen, Katharine McPhee, Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf. The program was hosted by CNN Anchor Michaela Pereira and TV Personality Ben Mulroney.
