The $1,000-per-ticket event also includes appearances by MC Hammer and DJ Rob Garza in an after-party from 9:30 p.m. to midnight in City Hall.

The evening begins with a reception in which Dr. Michael Anderson, president of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, will present Myla Cunanan, a 14-year-old cancer survivor, with the UCSF General Colin Powell Medal of Courage Award.
