Chicago will entertain Nancy Davis' star-studded Race to Erase MS Gala. The 24th annual benefit will take place May 5 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles in an effort to further treatment for multiple sclerosis.

The gala has previously featured performances by Elton John, KISS, Stevie Wonder, Aerosmith, CeeLo Green, Natalie Cole, Steven Tyler, Ne-Yo and Rita Ora. This year’s event will honor Sopranos alum Jamie-Lynn Sigler with the Medal of Hope award for her battle against multiple sclerosis for the past 15 years.

“Chicago is one of my favorite bands of all time and has endless hits that remind me so much of all the special moments in my life,” said Nancy Davis, who founded Race to Erase MS. “I am so excited that they can join us at this year’s Race to Erase MS Gala to support the cause.”

Davis’ gala has raised over $46 million toward researching and curing MS -- a disease that Davis was diagnosed with over 20 years ago. Funds raised from the event will go toward the Center Without Walls program established to bring together top doctors to find a cure for MS.
