The SeriousFun Children’s Network rounded out their upcoming charity gala's star-studded list of celebrity performers with actors Jamie Foxx and Michael Keaton.
The celebrated, award-winning stars have signed on to make special appearances during "An Evening of SeriousFun Celebrating the Legacy of Paul Newman," a gala fundraiser featuring music, comedy and moving personal stories.
Keaton and Foxx join a long-list of celebrities slated to participate in the evening's entertainment, which includes performances by Carole King, Natalie Cole, Burt Bacharach and Jay Leno, and appearances by Annette Bening, Renee Zellweger, Danny Devito and Anjelica Houston.
The fundraiser will benefit the SeriousFun Children’s Network, a global organization and community of children’s activity camps serving kids who are living with serious illnesses and their families.
The annual event's star power stems from the network's founder, late-movie star Paul Newman. The three-time Oscar recipient founded the program in 1988 and worked tirelessly to help it develop into the global charity organization has become.
The star-studded evening takes place on May 14 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Tickets for the gala are available now on Ticketmaster, and start as low as $40, with all proceeds going directly to the many facets of the charitable organization.
