The Heart to Heart Gala was established by Kettering Medical Center and Kettering Medical Center Foundation trustees who looked for a special way to strengthen community ties and raise funds to benefit expanding cardiac programs. Over the years, sponsors and attendees of this event have raised more than $7.5 million to provide state-of-the-art surgery equipment, patient and physician education, cardiac community outreach and support to the Kettering Cardiovascular Institute.
Donny & Marie are bringing their catalog of chart-toppers like “Puppy Love,” “Paper Roses,” and countless more. This showcase of unmatched harmonies continues today with their recent # 1, "A Beautiful Life," from the new duet album, "Donny & Marie" (2011).
Donny delivers a commanding performance, featuring hits from his solo career with innovative choreography and vocals, proving why America voted him ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" Champion, season nine.
Marie has proven to have a magnetic presence on stage, and has numerous gold records and hit songs, including a CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” Award. On Broadway she mastered a new style of singing, to which she received outstanding reviews.
These performers exemplify the art of entertaining. Not only is their show rated The Best of Las Vegas for three years in a row, Donny and Marie were also voted "Best Performers of Las Vegas" in 2012. Their incredible vocal range, from 'a little bit country' to 'a little bit rock and roll' will have you on your feet by the end of the show.
