Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler is one of the stars who have signed on to perform at the 21st annual Race to Erase MS charity event, scheduled for May 2 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. The benefit raises money for the organization's Center Without Walls program, which supports a collective of some of the world's top research scientists in their efforts to discover the cause and develop a cure for multiple sclerosis.
Other performers at this year's gala include Natalie Cole and Cee Lo Green . The event also will feature a live auction offering a variety of interesting collectibles and packages, including an Aston Martin Vanquish car designed by Ozzy Osbourne 's family. Last year, Osbourne's wife, Sharon , and son Jack -- the latter of whom was diagnosed with MS in 2012 -- were presented with the organization's Medal of Hope honor.
This year, the Medal of Hope honor will be presented to MediaNews Group founder Dean Singleton , a longtime MS sufferer who has contributed a large amount of time and money to support the fight against the disease.
