A night of stars to benefit Family Services of the Desert

You could really become jaded with all the charity fundraisers that offer a stellar line-up of performers here in the desert.

Most charity events with star quality offer up one or two, and on rare occasion three, celeb performers to sell the high-end tickets.

Photographer and film producer Michael Childers goes one better by assembling 21 stars for One Night Only: A Benefit for Family Services of the Desert on Saturday at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert.

The lineup for the night includes Chris Calloway (Cab's daughter), Wilson Cruz, Loretta Divine, Joely Fisher, Betty Garrett, Sally Kellerman, Andrea Marocovicci, Rod McKuen, Robert Morse, Valerie Pettiford, Stefanie Powers, Brian Lane Green, Nancy Dassault, Freda Payne, KT Sullivan, Kevin Spirtas, Bruce Vilanch, Ronobar Lahiri, Channing Cook Holmes, Susanna Guzman and emcee Doris Roberts.

“In addition to the right mix of reserve and stately beauty, she also possesses a lovely soprano voice.” –Variety

As a Hollywood star, Stefanie Powers is known for inimitable style and sophistication. Now she brings those same qualities to the American songbook and unveils yet another facet to her remarkable talent.
