The David Foster Foundation Miracle Gala and Concert
He’s a 16-time Grammy Award winner, Chairman of The Verve Music Group
and known worldwide simply as
“The Hitman”. But, David Foster touches the world with much more than his music, something he’s done at a chart-topping level for nearly 40 years. Strike up a conversation and the subject invariably turns to what is most near and dear to his heart, giving back and helping families through his 26 year old charity, The David Foster Foundation.
The foundation is a year-round passion, raising millions to support families with children undergoing organ transplants and raising awareness of the importance of being an organ donor. But there is
a special time each year when David throws down the challenge to set new benchmarks for giving, and to celebrate the group’s accomplishments. The Annual David Foster Foundation Miracle Gala and Concert is one of the most anticipated and celebrated events in Canada, and for good reason; David Foster is a national’s for a great cause...and it just so happens that nobody throws a Gala like David. The event is known for attracting an all-
star cast, and this year bolstered that reputation with performances by Andrea Bocelli, The Tenors, Earth, Wind and Fire, plus the legendary comedian Sinbad.
In 2013, EVI had the honor of Executive Producing this magnificent event, partnering with David Foster, David Foster Foundation President Michael Ravenhill, Musical Director Matthew Dela Pola and Mandell Entertainment
The evening featured a multitude of diverse elements packed into one agenda:
• A Gala Reception and Dinner for 900
• Masters of Ceremonies CNN Anchor Kristi Paul and Global Toronto Anchor Leslie Roberts
• The David Foster Foundation Visionary Awards
• Miracle Family Documentaries and Testimonials
• A Live Auction with renowned auctioneer Danny Hooper • Sponsor a Family
• The Toronto Miracle Concert featuring David Foster, Andrea Bocelli, The Tenors, Earth, Wind and Fire, and Sinbad
