Celine Dion Announces Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Benefit Concert

12/26/2012
.
Celine Dion will be the star of a special one-night-only benefit concert for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The benefit, "Adding Tomorrows with Celine Dion," will take place at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Sunday, January 20, 2013.

Celine 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 8:30 p.m. 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 Celine. "We're making dramatic progress in treating this terrible disease, and I truly hope that one day soon, CF will stand for 'cure found'."

Directed by Grammy Awards producer Ken Ehrlich, the show features a 31-piece band and orchestra and includes Celine's biggest hits mixed with timeless classics that pay tribute to some of the most celebrated songs and artists of all time. "We are grateful to Celine for her generosity and dedication to fighting cystic fibrosis," said Robert J. Beall , Ph.D., president and CEO of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. "This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and we encourage everyone to come out to see Celine's incredible show at Caesars Palace and help us bring hope to all people with this devastating disease."
