Cyndi Lauper to perform in Palm Springs

Cyndi Lauper performs during New York Fashion Week.

Girls aren’t the only ones who want to have fun in Palm Springs.

It turns out the volunteers who tirelessly worked, donors who generously contributed and others who loyally supported AIDS Assistance Program during the past 20 years also deserve to have a good time – and that’s what they’re likely to get with Cyndi Lauper.

The pop singer is slated to perform in May during AIDS Assistance Program’s 20th annual Evening Under the Stars. It was announced Sunday at the Jeannette Rockefeller Angel Program kickoff party that Lauper will provide the entertainment.

Lauper, who ascended to stardom with “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and ”Time After Time”  in the early 1980s and showed her diverse talent with an assortment of music in subsequent years, is a longtime advocate for prevention education and care to end HIV/AIDS. Her involvement includes AMFAR, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the Gay Men’s Health Crisis.

Evening Under the Stars will take place at 6 p.m. May 11 at the O’Donnell Golf Club in downtown Palm Springs. The Go-Go’s, Barbara Eden and Lainie Kazan were featured at the gala earlier this year.

What do you think? Is Lauper a good choice, someone who will bring out new and existing supporters of the cause?
