ENGLEWOOD, N.J. -- The Bergen Performing Arts Center is presenting its 11th Annual Gala on Tuesday, June 7 -- and Ringo Starr and His All Star Band will headline.
This celebratory evening -- the theater's major annual fundraiser -- will benefit bergenPAC's Performing Arts School. It will feature the legendary music icon Ringo Starr and His All Star Band.
"Peace and love are his life's rhythm and melody, and he propels this universal message in everything he does: his evocative artwork, his enthused live performances, his legendary songs, all imbued with the joy, reflection, and wisdom of the music icon the world knows and loves simply as 'Ringo,'" a news release notes.
Ringo Starr and His All Starr Band features Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie, Steve Lukather, Richard Page, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette. This current All Starr line up is the 12th and longest running, and as Ringo recently told The Boston Globe, "I love this band -- we have a lot of fun together on and offstage, so here we come again."
BergenPAC's honoree this year is Dr. Hetal Gor, and the organization will recognize her with the "Rising Star Award" for her staunch support and dedication to bergenPAC and the entire community. Her "tireless efforts and enthusiasm has helped introduce and build the theater's multicultural offerings -- pivotal to the growth of both the theater and its education mission," the news release added.
The theater will also honor its longtime staff member Rosalie Berlin with the "Distinguished Service Award," for her dedication to the theater since its inception.
