One of Playback‘s Hall of Fame inductees David Suzuki will be getting the green carpet treatment, as Canuck entertainers pay tribute to the well-known scientist on September 10.

Dubbed the Live Your Legacy Gala, the event will be an eco-friendly fundraiser for the David Suzuki Foundation, celebrating its 20th anniversary. Funnyman Russell Peters and George Stroumboulopoulos will co-host the evening, which will also feature performances from songstresses Chantal Kreviazuk and Lily Frost.

Other high-profile Canadians slated to toast Dr. Suzuki’s achievements include Gordon Lightfoot, Colin Mochrie, and Andrew Ference, to name a few.

The gala will be taking place during this year’s TIFF, in which Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie will have its world premiere the following day. The doc, which revolves around Suzuki’s life, is a co-pro with eOne and the NFB.
