Streisand, Dion, Griffin tuning in to fete Foster

Celine Dion has been tapped to perform and Merv Griffin will emcee the Neil Bogart Memorial Fund’s dinner honoring record producer David Foster. Sources said Barbra Streisand will be part of the presentation to Foster of the org’s Children’s Choice Award.

Streisand, who is currently gracing the radio waves with “Tell Him,” her duet with Dion (which Foster produced and co-wrote), will be among the big names attending Wednesday’s “TV Dinner Tune-In,” as it has been dubbed, at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. Sources said Streisand has been preparing to duet with Dion for a performance during the dinner.

Dustin Hoffman, Cindy Crawford, Neil Simon and Steve Perry, among others, are set to attend.

The evening’s theme of saluting the TV shows of the ’70s will be reflected in the transformation of the hangar into a ’70s talkshow set — hence the Griffin link — complete with green rooms and pages escorting guests to their seats.

But unlike many of the town’s top annual fundraising galas, where the dress code is black-tie, the Bogart event is known for its irreverence.

This year, guests are being encouraged to sport their favorite outfit inspired by the popular TV shows of the era. “Think ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and ‘The Partridge Family,’ ” event organizers suggested in the invitations.

“It is our privilege to honor someone who has given so much to the community,” said Bogart fund founder Joyce Bogart Trabulus.

The fund, an arm of the T.J. Martell Foundation, was named after the late Neil Bogart, a music and film industry entrepreneur whose Casablanca and Boardwalk Records labels released artists whose music defined a generation.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the treatment and cure of leukemia, cancer and AIDS in children.
