The 18th Annual “An Evening Under the Stars” Gala Dinner and Charity Auction to benefit the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for Children’s Cancer will be held on Saturday at the Mann Biomedical Park in Valencia.

Motown Legend Louis Price, former lead singer of the Temptations and The Drifters, will perform.

“We’re going to have a great meal, wonderful entertainment by Motown legend Louis Price and of course a rousing auction — an evening of fun but also one that emotionally connects our guests with the Michael Hoefflin Foundation and its work,” said Julie Benson, 2011 Gala chairwoman.

The Reverse Raffle offers a 14-day cruise to Hawaii courtesy of Princess Cruises. There are only 200 of the $100 tickets available.

“We appreciate the support of the community,” said Ed Lin, interim executive director of the Hoefflin Foundation. “This is our most important fund raising event of the year and we promise everyone a really great event.”

Among the items to be auctioned at the event will be two separate items autographed by boxing legend Muhammad Ali.
“Muhammad Ali is no longer autographing items, and we have an autographed boxing robe and autographed boxing shorts,” said Lin.

Other items up for bid include an LAPD helicopter ride along, a 9-week-old Yorkie puppy, sports memorabilia (Shaquille O’Neal, Andre Eithier and Mike Scioscia, among others) and vacation packages.

Hundreds of silent auction items and baskets will also be available.

The Hoefflin Foundation was founded in 1994 and provides money for pediatric cancer research and support services to pediatric cancer victims and their families in the SCV.

The nonprofit is named for Michael Hoefflin of Canyon Country who died of recurrent brain cancer at age 11.

To purchase Reverse Raffle tickets or for tickets to the event visit Evening Under the Stars, 6-11 p.m. Saturday, Mann Biomedical Park 25104 Rye Canyon Loop, Valencia 91355.
