This year’s 50th annual Dinner with the Stars features pop superstar Lionel Richie! This black-tie gala event celebrates Variety’s extensive impact on the lives of children with special needs. What started as a 24-hour telethon featuring live performances by legendary entertainers like Sammy Davis, Jr., Tony Bennett, Liza Minnelli, and many more, the Dinner with the Stars has evolved into an evening celebration culminating with a performance by a top national artist. Recent headliners have included Toni Braxton, Harry Connick, Jr., Carlos Santana, and Diana Ross.
Variety has selected the Peabody Opera House, a historic theater in the heart of downtown, as the venue for this year’s gala. This year we honor TricorBraun Chairman, Ken Kranzberg as 2016 Man of the Year, and community philanthropist, Judy Jones as 2016 Woman of the Year.
