The annual MusiCares Person of the Year dinner will be preceded by a cocktail reception and silent auction.

MusiCares is honored to pay tribute to him as our 2024 Person of the Year. Bon Jovi has also lent his life’s work to philanthropic efforts that align with the health and human services mission of MusiCares, forever changing the lives of those in need.”
