Eight Local Vocalists Compete
The Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center Foundation (PVHMC) is hosting
its first-ever “Singing for Survivors” fundraiser, an American Idol-style competition, to benefit
The Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center Endowment Fund.
The event, on Saturday, October 27 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Ontario,
will be hosted by comedian, actor, producer, director and writer Jeff
Garlin and will feature eight outstanding local vocalists.
The eight finalists are:
- Braxton Gohde, Covina
- Leilani Jones, North Rialto
- Arianna Nelson, Rancho Cucamonga
- Mia Perez, Walnut
- Jolleen Mejia and Crystal Williams, Chino
- Vivian Ridgway and Ryan Wirtz, Chino Hills
The finalists will be singing in front of a panel of judges, as well as
audience members who will have the opportunity to cast votes. Many of
the finalists are singing in honor of loved ones who are either cancer
survivors or currently battling cancer.
Singing for Survivors is the new annual fundraiser to benefit The Robert
and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center Endowment Fund, replacing the
Celebrating with Style Fashion Show.
In addition to the singing competition, the event includes a welcome reception,
theme basket raffle and luncheon.
