Telus backs David Foster Foundation miracle show

Josh Groban, Kenny G and American Idol winner Ruben Studdard added to list of entertainers

The David Foster Foundation announced that Telus is now the marquee sponsor of the foundation’s May 25 to 27 Miracle Concert and Gala Weekend in Victoria as the foundation celebrates its 25th anniversary.

“I am so excited to be coming back home to Victoria – my hometown,” said Foster. “To be able to celebrate our 25th anniversary with the Victoria community who supported the foundation from the very beginning is a thrill for me.”

Foster announced Josh Groban, Kenny G and American Idol winner Ruben Studdard to the growing list of entertainers who will join him May 26 for the Miracle Concert at Save on Foods Memorial Centre. In August 2011, the Canadian Tenors were named as the first act on board for the once-in-a-lifetime show.

Ticket sales for the concert and gala go on sale tomorrow (March 1) at noon.

“Telus is pleased to support the exceptional work being done by the David Foster Foundation and we are proud of their tireless efforts to assist organ recipient families at a time when it is needed most,” said Mel Cooper, Chair of the Telus Victoria Community Board. “For 25 years, the David Foster Foundation has helped more than 700 families across Canada. Together, we will continue to support transplant recipients and their families and raise awareness of the importance of organ donation in Canada.”

Tickets will be available through Select Your Tickets at the Save on Foods Memorial Centre box office, by phone at 250-220-7777, or online at www.selectyourtickets.com. Ticket prices range from $75, $125, and a limited number of $250 VIP seats and are subject to applicable taxes and service charges.

The David Foster Foundation is dedicated to providing financial support to Canadian families with children in need of life-saving organ transplants. In addition to helping families with their non-medical expenses, the foundation strives to increase organ donor registration through public awareness campaigns in Canada and the United States.
