Celine Dion to Perform at Cystic Fibrosis Benefit
Thu, 27 Dec 2012 11:32:16
Celine Dion, Caesars Entertainment and AEG Live are teaming up to create a special one-night only event, "Adding Tomorrows with Celine Dion," to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on Sunday, January, 20, 2013.
Dion lost her niece Karine to Cystic Fibrosis in 1993 and has been involved in the fight against this disease as the Celebrity Patron for Cystic Fibrosis Canada since 1982.
The benefit concert will raise funds to support critical research for cystic fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease that causes debilitating lung infections and premature death. As the world's leading organization fighting cystic fibrosis, the CF Foundation funds more research than any other organization and is fueling tremendous advances toward a cure and improving the lives of those with the disease.
Celine will perform at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace beginning at 8:30PM Guests who have purchased special VIP packages that include the exclusive dinner are invited to attend an exclusive pre-concert cocktail reception during Celine's soundcheck–with full orchestra –at The Colosseum.
"I'm honored to be able team up with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and my partners at Caesars Entertainment and AEG Live to raise funds and awareness on January 20th for this very worthy cause," said Dion. "We're making dramatic progress in treating this terrible disease, and I truly hope that one day soon, CF will stand for 'cure found.'"
