Sir Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson will perform at the Adopt-A-Minefield's second annual "Open Hearts, Clear Mines" benefit gala to be held on September 18 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, California. Brian Wilson told reporters that he was personally invited by the McCartneys to perform at the benefit when they visited him backstage after his concert in Brighton last month (see June 6). The event, organized by Heather, will once again be hosted by Jay Leno. Other entertainers will be announced at a later date.
Individuals who attended last year's gala or made a donation to the event recently received a letter from the McCartneys inviting them to the event. Tickets for the benefit begin at $500 (for a limited number of single seats) and run as high as $100,000 (for "partner" packages that include two tables of 10, two seats at the head table and admission to a VIP reception). For more information, please contact the event coordinator Levi, Pazanti & Associates at (310) 201-5033.
