The virtual, free event on Oct. 24 will also feature exclusive musical performances from HAIM, Judith Hill, Katharine McPhee and David Foster, McGregor and his girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead, as well as McGregor’s daughter’s band French Thyme. ​It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia​’s Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney will also make a special appearance.

All funds raised at the gala will support GO Campaign’s ongoing efforts for global COVID-19 relief and racial justice in the U.S. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, GO Campaign, which aims to raise awareness and funds to help orphans and vulnerable children worldwide, has granted more than $176,000 in COVID emergency relief to grassroots organizations.
