Greg London, the master musical impressionist who pays hilarious homage every night to scores of today’s top icons will be bringing his popular and critically acclaimed show "ICONMAN" to the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada, on Saturday, October 3, 2009. London will be giving a special performance at "An Evening of Stars," a major fundraising benefit organized by friends and family of 5 year old Reno twins, Addi and Cassi Hempel.

The identical twins are stricken with a rare and fatal cholesterol disease called Niemann Pick Type C, otherwise known as "Childhood Alzheimer’s." Addi and Cassi Hempel’s battle against cholesterol and dementia has been featured on DATELINE, Good Morning America and covered by The Wall Street Journal as discoveries into their cholesterol disease may lead to understanding of illnesses that could impact millions of people.

Nevada Magazine recently named London Nevada Entertainer of the Year 2009 and “ICONMAN” is one of the longest running shows ever at Harrah’s Reno. Harrah’s has graciously allowed London to perform his hit show at the Grand Sierra Resort Ballroom for one night as the venue can accomodate a large audience.

Last year, The Addi and Cassi Hempel Fund’s Moonlight Garden Gala drew over 1,000 people to the Downtown Reno Ballroom including world renown scientists and local dignitaries. Ventriloquist sensation and America’s Got Talent winner Terry Fator and former American Idol singer Melinda Doolittle performed and with the help of the Silver Legacy and scores of local businesses helped raise over $500,000 dollars for research into"Childhood Alzheimer’s."
