For those who attended the Benefit Concert for the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital on September 20, 2012, it was a star-studded treat.
Lady Antebellum, the young seven-time Grammy Award-winning trio, owned the stage at the Bill Graham Auditorium.
The program began with a touching opening ceremony. General Colin Powell presented the UCSF Medal of Courage award to a brave young patient facing medical treatment.
Following the opening ceremony, the mood shifted to humor as the entertainment commenced with Dana Carvey’s hilarious opening performance. In true Dana Carvey Style, he found ways to poke fun at politics with his signature presidential impressions.
The spectacular evening continued as Lady Antebellum gave an exhilarating performance. The crowd went crazy as the trio rocked the house with their popular yet timeless music.
Following the show, concert guests were treated to an exclusive afterparty at City Hall featuring DJ will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas, and MC Hammer. The after party brought a packed house as Will.i.am and MC Hammer took turns spinning.
Sponsored by the Salesforce.com Foundation, funds raised through ticket sales will go toward building a new home for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, one of the nation’s best children’s medical facilities.
