Canadian country rock star Johnny Reid will headline the entertainment at the Richmond Hospital Foundation’s 16th annual Starlight Gala, organizers announced this week.

Reid is a platinum-selling artist with three Juno Awards under his belt. The Scottish-born, Canadian-raised soul singer has numerous hit singles in Canada.

This year’s Starlight Gala—the foundation’s signature white tie event—is set for Oct. 18 at River Rock Casino Resort. Since its inauguration in 1999, the event has raised more than $3.2 million for hospital equipment and programs.

Gala guests can expect a cocktail reception and dinner, silent and live auctions, the foundation’s annual Leadership Challenge, as well as an inspiring story of a patient’s personal journey through Richmond Hospital.

Tickets are $400 each. For more information, visit the foundation’s website or call 604-244-5252.
