Breaking News: Sting, Sam Moore, and Elvis Costello to Headline Inaugural Ball

The Creative Coalition announced today that rocker Sting and R&B legend Sam Moore will join Elvis Costello to headline their sold-out inaugural ball. All three are Grammy Award winners. The arts and entertainment organization is packing in the star-power for their January 20 event—confirmed attendees include Anne Hathaway, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Seal, and lots more.

Ticket packages for the ball, which benefits the Creative Coalition, ranged from $10,000 for two ball tickets to $100,000 for 50 VIP passes and 20 tickets to a pre-ball dinner. For red carpet junkies and members of the paparazzi, celebrities will begin arriving at the Harman Center for the Arts at 8:30 PM.
