Some time ago, this Web site announced that Elton would play the Star Ball on April 22, 2006 at San Francisco’s Ritz-Carlton, to help fund mental health research.
The Nob Hill Gazette has elaborated on this further, noting that Sharon Osbourne will be mistress of ceremonies.
Tables are going from $7,500-$25,000, while single tickets cost $750-$1,000.
After Danielle Steel‘s son committed suicide, she decided to honour him by forming the Nick Traina Foundation. Each year, there is a ball, and in the past, Ray Charles, Barry Manilow, the Temptations and Mariah Carey have taken part.
