An event not to be missed! An exclusive and intimate evening with The Righteous Brothers and Kathie Lee Gifford, with special guest Nate Sallie, benefiting Hope and Healing at Hillenglade.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo The Righteous Brothers topped the charts in four decades. Now, Bill Medley joins forces with one of the most versatile vocalists in America, Bucky Heard, to bring the Righteous Brothers back to the stage. The Righteous Brother concert experience features a string of their biggest #1 hits, including You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ (the most played song in radio history), Soul & Inspiration, Unchained Melody, Rock and Roll Heaven, Medley’s Grammy-winning Dirty Dancing theme The Time of My Life, and much, much more!

Kathie Lee Gifford is the three-time Emmy award winning co-host of the fourth hour of “TODAY,” alongside Hoda Kotb. The Gifford-Kotb hour has been hailed as “appointment television” by Entertainment Weekly, and “TODAY’s happy hour” by USA Today.

Prior to NBC News, Gifford served as the co-host of “Live with Regis and Kathie Lee” for 15 years, where she received 11 Emmy nominations. She was also a correspondent for “Good Morning America” for three years. In 2015 Gifford was inducted into the Broadcast & Cable Hall of Fame.

A playwright, producer, singer, songwriter and actress, Gifford has starred in numerous television programs and movies in her 40-year career. She has her own record label and has written several musicals including Broadway’s SCANDALOUS, which received a Tony nomination for Best Actress in 2012. Gifford also starred on Broadway in “Putting it Together” and “Annie.” She recently debuted three new songs, "Love Me to Death", "He Saw Jesus" and "Jesus Is His Name" with Grammy-winning, Brett James. Each song debuted #1 on iTunes. She has just wrapped principal photography on THEN CAME YOU, a film she has written, produced and starred in alongside Craig Ferguson. Gifford co-wrote all eight songs for the movie, alongside Brett James.

Gifford authored four NY Times bestselling books including “The Rock, The Road and the Rabbi”, “Just When I Thought I’d Dropped My Last Egg,” “I Can’t Believe I Said That,” and the popular children’s book “Party Animals.” This October she’ll be releasing a new children’s book called, “The Gift That I Can Give.”

She also launched GIFFT, a line of wine with the Scheid Family Vineyards in Monterey, CA.

Gifford lends support to numerous children’s organizations including Childhelp and the Association to Benefit Children, which spawned Cassidy’s Place and Cody House, named after her two children. A devoted humanitarian, she received an honorary degree from Marymount University for her humanitarian work in labor relations.

Gifford resides in Connecticut.
