HITS Daily Double


After a two-year, pandemic-induced hiatus, City of Hope’s Spirit of Life Gala returns on 10/27 at L.A.’s Pacific Design Center.

Honoring brothers Monte and Avery Lipman, co-founders and chief execs of Republic Records, the gala will also feature a performance by multiplatinum singer/songwriter Jack Johnson.

“I’m excited to be part of City of Hope’s gala honoring my friends Monte and Avery Lipman,” Johnson said. “Over the past 20 years, they have always been there for me. Now it’s my turn to shine the spotlight on them and the important work they do with City of Hope!”

The honor is presented to industry leaders who “have made a significant commitment to improving the lives of others through the advancement of research and clinical innovation and the delivery of personalized, compassionate care.”

Prior honorees have included the likes of Sylvia Rhone, Jon Platt, Mo Ostin, Clive Davis, Quincy Jones, Shelli and Irving Azoff, Doug Morris and Sir Lucian Grainge.
