The gala supports the acclaimed nonprofit clinical research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

There, Jay will present the prestigious Spirit of Life award to Jon.

“It’s no secret that I don’t like being the center of attention, that’s for the songwriters, but when I accept the Spirit of Life award this fall, I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather have presenting it. Jay is unquestionably one of the most giving and genuine people I know, not to mention one of the greatest songwriters on the planet. I’m lucky to call him my brother. October 11 is going to be a really special, unforgettable night,” said Jon.

Jay will be returning from his On The Run II Tour with Beyonce. We’re hoping she’ll also be in attendance at the star-studded event!
