TORONTO—David Foster and friends raised a miraculous $4.2 million for the David Foster Foundation on Dec. 5 at Toronto’s Allstream Centre. 

Among the attendees were dignitaries, celebrities, musicians, athletes, and philanthropists. Award-winning musician David Foster hosted the event, with Laureen Harper, wife of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, acting as the honourary chair. 

Guests were treated to a host of celebrity performances including The Tenors, Karl Wolf, Sinbad, Earth Wind and Fire, and Andrea Bocelli.
