Multi-Grammy winner Pink and Dallas Green (City and Color) will perform as the duo You + Me, joining retired Montecito rocker Kenny Loggins in headlining the One805Live! gala at the oceanside estate of Oscar winning actor Kevin Costner in September.

Co-founder, chairman, and CEO Kirsten Cavendish Weston-Smith revealed the latest addition to the stellar lineup at a pre-bash event at the Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, where more than 300 guests raised in excess of $80,000 to help First Responders in Santa Barbara County.

Pink, 44, known for her raspy voice and accomplished stage presence, has sold more than 135 million records worldwide.

Steve Postell and the Night Train Music Club, with some of the best session and touring musicians worldwide, headlined the sunny sunset soirée with Goleta rocker Alan Parsons – who wrote “Out Loud,” the 805 anthem – Steve Ferrone, drummer for Tom Petty and The Average White Band, who has played with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, and Mick Jagger; Leland Sklar, bassist for The Immediate Family, who has worked with Phil Collins, James Taylor, and Toto; Russ Irwin, vocalist, who worked with Aerosmith, Sting, Jeff Beck, and John Fogerty; and Elliot Easton from The Cars.

A live auction featured guitars signed by Kevin Costner, Kenny Loggins, and Elliot Easton, a luxury $3,500 a night suite at the Belmond El Encanto, a helicopter flight champagne picnic at Lake Cachuma, and vintage cognac and cigars with county sheriff Bill Brown.

Among the tidal wave of guests noshing on the Lucca wood-fired pizza and quaffing the Sunstone wine and creative cocktails, were Adam McKaig, Jeep Holden, Richard Weston-Smith, Bill and Donna Brown, Oscar Gutierrez, John Thyne III, Maitland Ward, and KLITE radio host Catherine Remak.
