Four-time Grammy Award winner and co-star of the hit 1978 movie Grease, Olivia Newton-John will headline a charity fundraiser at Carmen’s Banquet Centre this fall.
“We will sell out,” predicted Paul Vaccarello, co-chair of Singing a New Tune: An Evening with Olivia Newton-John, slated for Nov. 19 with proceeds going to support the new $5 million CIBC Breast Assessment Centre slated to be built at the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre starting this fall with completion by the spring of 2013.
The 64-year-old Newton-John, who overcame her own battle with breast cancer in the 1990s, will speak about her career and battle with cancer and take questions from the audience.
She’s also expected to sing one or two of her hit songs.
About 900 tickets are available for the evening which includes gourmet dinner and a live and silent auction
Tickets start at $100 and are available through Carmen’s box office at 905-387-0007.
