Hollywood came together for the What A Pair! Benefit Concert to support Cedars-Sinai’s Breast Cancer Research & Education Programs.

Empowered by a desire to support her sister and mother, both of whom battled breast cancer, Jo Levi DiSante enlisted fellow producers Jody Price and Ruth Stalford ten years ago to create the What A Pair! Benefit Concert—a celebration of duets and love for musical theater from which one hundred percent of net proceeds benefit breast cancer research and education. This is the first year that the event will be joining forces with the acclaimed team at Cedars-Sinai.

Stars from television, film, music and Broadway, came together for a benefit concert of duets, all to support breast cancer research and education. What A Pair! Benefit Concert included a VIP pre-party with the celebrity cast, post-concert reception, silent auction and after the show a fabulous sit down dinner for guests.

Standing Ovation

The “pairings” of celebrities in the Broadway-caliber production were comical, heartwarming, and entertaining; performances that can only be seen at this concert! Each performance delivered a unique and special message. From clapping along with the performance, to being breathtaken and touched. It was beautiful to see pregnant women amoungst the performers.
