Here are the Hollywood stars heading to St. Paul this weekend

It's for the annual Starkey Hearing Foundation gala.

It's that time of year when a host of celebrities head to the Twin Cities for the star-studded Starkey Hearing Foundation's So The World May Hear Awards Gala.

The exclusive gala is being held on Saturday at Grand Ballroom in St. Paul's RiverCentre, with tickets to the event starting at an eye-watering $1,500.

Among this year's honorees is Oscar-winning actor and director Ben Affleck, who is being recognized for his charity work on the East Congo Initiative. His soon-to-be-ex-wife Jennifer Garner was herself an honoree in last year's gala (she won't be attending this year ... that would probably be awkward).

In addition to the Good Will Hunting and Argo star, there are plenty of other celebrities flying in from Tinseltown to put in an appearance – among them Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, who will be among the musical performers at the event.

The Pioneer Press notes the best place to catch a glimpse of the stars will be getting a spot outside the RiverCentre main doors on Kellogg Boulevard, with the celebs expected to walk the red carpet from 3-5 p.m.

Here's a list of some of the celebrities in attendance:

  • Ben Affleck
  • Steven Tyler
  • Caitlyn Jenner
  • Darius Rucker
  • America's Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal
  • Sinbad
  • Portia Clark
  • John Fogarty
  • Forest Whitaker
  • Kevin Sorbo (Hercules and Andromeda actor)
  • Shark Tank's Daymond John
  • Adrian Peterson
  • Kyle Rudolph
  • Evander Holyfield
  • Larry Fitzgerald Jr.
  • Chad Greenway
  • Stefon Diggs
  • Harrison Smith
  • Xavier Rhodes
  • Paralympian Mallory Weggemann

By the way, if you do head to the red carpet and see Kevin Sorbo – you know what to shout:
