Legendary three-time Grammy Award nominee and star of the Broadway musical “Aida,” Taylor Dayne will perform during LifeStream Blood Bank’s Thanks4Giving Gala on Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Westin Hotel and Resort in Rancho Mirage, California.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Taylor Dayne join us during this special evening,” said Dr. Rick Axelrod, LifeStream’s president/CEO and medical director. “To have an artist who has sold over 75 million albums worldwide be our feature performer is an incredible addition to
our fundraising event. We are thankful to be back in-person this year and know it will be a night to remember for our guests.”

The evening will start with a reception at 6 p.m., followed by a dinner and program from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., where La Quinta Mayor and Desert Care Network Chief Strategy Officer Linda Evans will receive LifeStream’s Humanitarian of the Year award. San Bernardino County
