Bette Midler to Match Fan Donations for Haiti Earthquake Victims

January 18, 2010 by  

Living up to her famous moniker “The Divine Miss M.,” Bette Midler announced she would be collecting monetary donations and matching the amount received from concerned fans through the final performance of The Showgirl Must Go On at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Sun., Jan. 31. So far, the combination of Bette’s fans and her matching donations has resulted in $38,742.62 that will go to aid the relief efforts.

Deeply touched by the devastation in Haiti, The Divine Miss M. encouraged fans to keep the victims in their thoughts and made the announcement that she would match the funds raised before she sang, “Wind Beneath My Wings.” Bette’s showgirls, affectionately known as the Caesar Salad Girls, were taking collections at the doors once the show was over.

Bette was so overwhelmed by the generosity and caring hearts of her fans after the final amount was totaled that she committed to match monetary donations taken during all shows through the final performance on Sun., Jan. 31, 2010. All funds will go to Doctors Without Borders, an international medical humanitarian organization operating in Haiti.

Fans can still catch all the show’s excitement with Bette’s final performances available now through January 31.
