Win Two Tickets to the MusiCares 2011 Person of the Year Gala & Concert Honoring Barbra Streisand

Would you like to see Stevie Wonder sing live? How about Barry Manilow, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Donna Summer, LeAnne Rimes and the stars of the hit TV show Glee? All these performers are set to appear at one once in a lifetime show saluting Barbra Streisand!

The 2011 Grammy Foundation selected Barbra as their “Person of the Year” honoree at the upcoming February 11th MusiCares gala. And Barbra will close the evening with her own special performance.

You can win two tickets to this show by fundraising for Barbra's campaign for the Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai on Crowdrise between today and February 7th.

Here’s how you get started:
Click the Join the Team button on this page. With one press of this button your own personal fundraising page is set up and ready to go. Once you have joined Barbra's team as a fundraiser, you can reach out to your friends and family and ask them to help support this important cause. Raising $10 or $20 from lots of people can go such a long way in fighting heart disease.


The MusiCares Person of the Year Gala is one of the most high profile events held during GRAMMY Week. Announced performers at the concert include Tony Bennett; singer/actress Kristin Chenoweth; GRAMMY-nominated Glee cast members Darren Criss, Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison; Herbie Hancock; Diana Krall; Barry Manilow; Donna Summer; Stevie Wonder; Jeff Beck; LeAnn Rimes; Seal; BeBe Winans and singer Nikki Yanofsky. Streisand, an eight-time GRAMMY-winning artist and current nominee, will close the evening with her own special performance.

Thank you for all of your support and good luck!

The work of the Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai is vital. Did you know that heart disease takes the lives of more women than all cancers combined? Can you imagine? I was so surprised when I learned this.

The symptoms of a heart attack are often different in women than in men. But for decades, women have been treated for cardiovascular disease based on medical research done on men.

How is this possible? Women are different physiologically from men—and we are paying a terrible price for this knowledge gap. Because of these staggering statistics, I am committed to taking on this epidemic, and I need all of your help. I hope to raise $10M dollars (of which I will match up to $5M) for research, treatment and education on women’s heart disease.


I was thrilled to learn that the brilliant Dr. C. Noel Bairey Merz, MD, is conducting the proper research and educating women and physicians about cardiovascular disease right in my own backyard—at the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Heart Center.

The research at the Women’s Heart Center is revolutionary. Few institutions in the country are so focused on how heart disease presents itself differently in women. The Center is changing how women are diagnosed, treated, and educated about heart disease. And their work is helping women everywhere.

But this is not just about women. The latest research at the Center on women’s stem cells is showing that these cells may not only help a woman’s heart, but a man’s as well.

I think science is finally revealing what women have known all along!

Learn more about Dr. Bairey Merz, the Women’s Heart Center, and their amazing work at They are leading the nation.

I am very proud to be a part of this endeavor. Together, we have an opportunity to save many lives—the lives of our mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters, wives, and friends.

Please join me in supporting this life-giving program.
