So Everyone Can Hear

The Starkey Hearing Foundation hosted A-list performances at their annual gala to raise money for hearing awareness

Who, What, Where: Starkey Hearing Foundation’s So The World May Hear Gala, held at the St. Paul RiverCentre, July 24.

See and be Seen:
The red carpet was full of notables, including former president Bill Clinton and actress Marlee Matlin, both honored for their humanitarian work.

Show Me the Money: The event reeled in $7.2 million—the largest amount in the gala’s 11-year history—to bring aid in hearing to people here and around the world.

Listen Up:
One after another, high-profile performers like Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, and Miley Cyrus waltzed on stage. And yes, even Meat Loaf —the rock legend, not the food—sang a few notes.

After Hours: Gala-goers partied late into the night as Kevin Costner and his band Modern West pumped out tunes.
