The Canadian Cancer Society has set a date for their fundraiser gala of May 5th. I am the honorary Entertainment chairperson for this event and every year I sing a few songs to kick off the evening. Last year the event featured Sarah McLachlan as our special guest entertainment. Sarah was gracious and while visiting with her, I was struck by her genuine support for the cause. Her set was an amazing collection of hits and the crowd could not get enough of her.

This year the special guest has not been revealed yet but . . . the sad part is I am booked for May 5th already:(

I have a gig in Calgary that was already confirmed before the Canadian Cancer Society booked their venue for the same date. I can’t be in two places at once so I guess I’ll continue to hold the record of “Ten Thousand Dollar Man” (That’s how much an “Up close and Personal” concert by me was auctioned off for at the event last year.
