A portion of proceeds will also go to fourteen other non-profit organizations.

The evening will include performances by Robin Thicke (Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter), Wynonna Judd (Grammy-nominated singer), John Elefante (former lead singer of band Kansas), and Dennis DeYoung (founder and former lead singer of band Styx).
