EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Through emotional and energetic performances, Garth Brooks, Jon McLaughlin, and Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo helped the Starkey Hearing Foundation, a world leader in promoting hearing health awareness, raise a record $5,045,000 at its annual "So the World May Hear" Awards Gala, held Saturday, June 14 at the RiverCentre in Saint Paul, Minn.

"Because Garth performs so rarely, it was a true honor to have him headline this year's Gala and help the Foundation raise an extraordinary amount of money to help give the gift of hearing to those in need all over the world," said Bill Austin, founder of the Starkey Hearing Foundation. According to Austin, Brooks stepped in as headliner when the original event headliner had to cancel unexpectedly.

"The Starkey Hearing Foundation is a charity that Trisha believes in strongly and supports enthusiastically. Garth was as much supporting her as he was Starkey by stepping in to perform, and we are truly grateful." Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks' wife, has partnered with the Starkey Hearing Foundation on its public awareness campaign, Sound Affects, designed to educate the public on responsible listening.

"Starkey does amazing things for all people," said Brooks. "They see no flags, no income levels, no colors...just the need. These people are truly angels on this earth."

In addition to live and silent auctions and spectacular entertainment, the evening also included the Foundation's recognition of four individuals for their significant contributions to humanity. This year's honorees, all of whom attended this year's event, included Wimbledon champion Billie Jean King, Major League
