Keep Memory Alive will honor country music sensation Blake Shelton at the 27th annual Power of Love® gala on Friday, May 10, at MGM Garden Arena. Tickets are on sale now for the star-studded event that raises essential funds to benefit Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health at KeepMemoryAlive.org/POL

Renowned chef Wolfgang Puck, a supporter of Keep Memory Alive since its inception, will join forces with chef Evan Funke of the acclaimed Mother Wolf at Fontainebleau Las Vegas to take attendees on a culinary journey with unique dishes made especially for the Power of Love gala. Each course will be expertly paired with wines selected by master sommeliers from Southern Glazer’s Wine, Spirits & Beer of Nevada.

The Power of Love gala is a vital platform to generate funds to enable the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health to find, fund, and facilitate the most effective and innovative research, treatment, and educational support programming for patients and their families affected by brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, multiple system atrophy and multiple sclerosis.

Shelton, country music’s unapologetic ambassador, will be honored for his remarkable two-decade career filled with boot-stomping bangers, heartbreak anthems and endearing odes to love gone wrong and right. He will kick off round two of his “Back To The Honky Tonk” Tour, on February 21 in Hershey, PA. The second season of his highly successful USA Network gameshow, Barmageddon, recently wrapped but is streaming now on Peacock.

With 52 million singles and 13 million albums sold and nearly 11 billion global streams, Shelton has received numerous awards, including six Academy of Country Music Awards, three American Music Awards, 10 Country Music Association Awards, 11 Country Music Television Awards and six People’s Choice, among many others.

Heavily involved in philanthropic endeavors, Shelton has been supportive of pediatric cancer research and care, establishing the Blake Shelton Cancer Research Program in 2018. Alongside his wife, singer Gwen Stefani, he has performed at numerous benefit concerts around the country.

“Blake Shelton’s music rocks our world, but it’s his philanthropy that steals the show and touches countless lives and we are proud to honor him at the Power of Love gala,” Keep Memory Alive Co-founder and Chairman Larry Ruvo said. “Together, we are directly impacting our local community and improving the lives of family, friends, and neighbors. It is our belief that what happens in Las Vegas at Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health benefits the rest of the world.”
