Star-Studded Gala to Benefit Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health will feature music and film’s biggest stars


LAS VEGAS, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Las Vegas will celebrate the lives and legacies of two of the entertainment world’s most influential stars, Quincy Jones and Sir Michael Caine , at the 17th annual Power of Love Gala on April 13, 2013 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, while raising funds in support of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.

The celebrity-guest lineup for the night includes the expected attendance by superstar Barbra Streisand along with performances and heartfelt tributes from some of the world’s hottest entertainers including music and film legends Bebe Winans , Chaka Khan , Herbie Hancock , Jordin Sparks , Terrence Howard , Patti Austin , will.i.am, Whoopi Goldberg and more.

Celestial twins, born in the same year, same month, same hour and within minutes of each other, one in Chicago, the other in London, Jones and Caine met decades ago and have since been great friends. This glittering star-studded gala will bring together the world’s celebrities of music and film to mark this milestone year for these two entertainment marvels.

“We are incredibly excited and humbled to honor Quincy Jones and Sir Michael Caine with an extraordinary birthday celebration at this year’s Power of Love Gala ,” said Larry Ruvo , Founder and Chairman of Keep Memory Alive. “These two iconic men are helping shine light on the reason why we have this event every year: to support the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health’s continued work towards enhanced treatments and research of neurocognitive disorders.”

Named by Time Magazine as one of the six most influential Jazz artists of the 20th Century, legendary music producer Quincy Jones has spent more than 60 years in the entertainment industry working with America’s greatest musicians including Ray Charles , Frank Sinatra , Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson , among many others.  Jones is one of the most decorated entertainers of his time, garnering 27 Grammy Awards, a record 79 Grammy nominations, seven Academy Award nominations, a Tony Award nomination and an Emmy Award.

Sir Michael Caine is an English actor and is most noted for his roles in Cider House Rules, Miss Congeniality and Christopher Nolan ‘s Dark Knight Trilogy. Jones and Caine share a birthday and the Power of Love Gala will be the third time they have joined forces to celebrate.

In keeping with its 16-year history, the Power of Love Gala will include a celebrity-chef dinner, a one-of-a-kind live and silent auction, and star-studded performances.  Past memorable galas include honoring boxing legend Muhammad Ali with a 70th birthday celebration in February 2012 and the final performance of master illusionists Siegfried & Roy in February 2009. Generating the bulk of Keep Memory Alive’s revenue, the annual gala is imperative to the success of Keep Memory Alive and the Center for Brain Health in the mission to enhance treatments and research of neurocognitive disorders.

The evening’s festivities will begin with a Dom Perignon reception, followed by an extraordinary display prepared by superstar chefs Wolfgang Puck and Gordon Ramsay , remarkable auction items, and spectacular live entertainment.

“Las Vegas is the perfect destination for a celebration of this magnitude,” said Rossi Ralenkotter , president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). “No other destination has the world-class entertainment, dining and exciting atmosphere like Las Vegas. It offers the perfect backdrop for such an influential party.”

The Power of Love Gala is being produced by Bill Edwards Presents Inc. and supported by the LVCVA and Keep Memory Alive, the fundraising arm of the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
