Celebrities from near and far are expected to attend the Starkey Hearing Foundation's 14th Annual "So the World May Hear Gala" this Sunday at the St. Paul River Centre. A handful of A-listers usually come to town for the event, which raises money to provide hearing aids to people in need around the world.

Some of the confirmed stars who will be in St. Paul include: former first lady/Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Forest Whitaker, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Adrian Peterson, Paul Molitor, Dave Winfield, Greg Jennings, Shannon Elizabeth, Verne Troyer and Marlee Matlin among others.

John Legend,  Rob Thomas and Sammy Hagar are a few of the VIPs scheduled to perform throughout the evening. Comedian Norm Crosby is hosting the event.

Gala organizers usually keep the names of a few famous faces under wraps, so there's no telling if other stars plan to grace the red carpet. Want to catch of glimpse of the star-studded hoopla? The celebrities will be walking the red carpet outside the Kellogg Boulevard entrance from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

The Starkey Foundation is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The annual fundraiser raised more than $8 million last year.
