On February 4th, Prince will be headlining a charity event to raise money for the Goss-Michael Foundation.
Guests at the soiree, called theEvent (which is no cheap ticket), will be entertained by Prince with a special guest appearance by Erykah Badu.
George Michael and his partner Kenny Goss created the foundation in 2007 to provide a forum for British contemporary art in Dallas by organizing “exhibitions, programs and resources to educate, engage and inspire youth and adult audiences.” In addition to the gallery, the foundation offers scholarships, internships and contests for youth interested in the arts.
Tickets are still available, although the cheapest seats are $1500 and a table costs $25,000. In addition to being serenaded by Prince, guests will be treated to food, spirits, a DJ and a silent auction.
