"'Artists for Others' is our way of giving back to the community," she added. "The AIM benefit on April 3rd will be the inaugural kickoff for other charitable performances to be held every year at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. Although we are serious about raising funds for AIM, the event will be a fun-filled evening where guests will enjoy a magical night of magnificent music, in an elegant setting -- up close and personal with these talented artists. All of our guest artists are performing at the benefit without a fee because they love children and want to do all that they can to help AIM provide more lifesaving services."
In addition, Ms. Hill noted that the evening will include a cocktail reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres, musical performances and a dessert buffet.
Ms. Grant, an American singer-songwriter, musician, author, media personality and actress, has had Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 songs, such as "The Next Time I Fall" with Peter Cetera and "Baby Baby."
