L.B. Center for People With Brain Injuries to Share Concert Proceeds

March 24, 1988

The third annual Singers' Salute to the Songwriter, which will benefit the Betty Clooney Foundation for Persons With Brain Injury as well as its newly opened Betty Clooney Center in Long Beach, will take place at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Los Angeles Music Center.

This year's honorees are: Adolph Green and Betty Comden ("Wonderful Town"), Antonio Carlos Jobim ("The Girl From Ipanema"), Burton Lane ("Finian's Rainbow"), Melissa Manchester ("Come in From the Rain"), Michel Legrand ("Yentl") and Ralph Burns ("Annie").

Singer Rosemary Clooney will again serve as master of ceremonies and some of the entertainers will be Debby Boone, Diahann Carroll, Vic Damone, Michael Feinstein, Jack Jones, the L.A. Jazz Choir, the Lennon Sisters and Maureen McGovern.

Tickets may be purchased for $35, $150 and $275 by calling the foundation at 553-8417. The top two prices include a champagne reception after the concert.

The first two salute concerts were sold out and raised more than $700,000 for the foundation.

The Betty Clooney Center is a nonprofit institution that functions like a club whose members, suffering from brain injuries, work at various tasks that enable them to regain skills such as decision-making and problem-solving. There are also opportunities for social interaction and recreation.
