The awards dinner will be hosted by entertainer and musician Paul Shaffer of The Late Show with David Letterman.

"We are pleased to have the help of Paul Shaffer on an evening where we celebrate our long commitment to improving the lives of people throughout the world through education and advocacy."

On behalf of The CHEST Foundation, Shaffer will present $140,000 in grant money to the 22 award recipients at the dinner.
