The Partnership for Baylor College of Medicine will host a tribute to “The Magic of Motown” April 8 at the Revention Music Center, 520 Texas Ave. in downtown Houston, benefiting the Baylor's Lung Institute

The comprehensive, multidisciplinary Baylor College of Medicine Lung Institute at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center includes a team of healthcare specialists and researchers who diagnose and treat patients with complex lung conditions. It is led by lung disease expert and surgeon Dr. David Sugarbaker, professor of general thoracic surgery at Baylor.

“I’m so pleased that the Lung Institute was selected by the Partnership for Baylor College of Medicine to receive this generous support from our community,” said Sugarbaker.

The evening will include a light show, video and music performed by Motown tribute vocal artists, accompanied by the award-winning Kashmere Stage Reunion Band.

The Lester and Sue Smith Foundation is the presenting sponsor, with entertainment sponsors Joe Ellis and Robin Ellis-Young. The event is co-chaired by Robin Ellis-Young and Carol Sawyer, along with honorary chairs Lester and Sue Smith.

The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a VIP reception for major sponsors. The reception for all guests starts at 7 p.m., with dinner, entertainment and dancing following remarks and announcements from special guests.
