Steve “Woz” Wozniak’s wife Janet is throwing an online “11-days of Wozdom,” to celebrate her husband’s 70th birthday and also raising funds for the charity Jewel’s Inspiring Children Foundation.
The “surprise birthday” party will take place on Woz’s 70th birthday, August 11, and will feature streaming events. It will then be followed by 11 days of “daily challenges,” such as scavenger hunts with new and retro Apple prizes.
“Join us for an unforgettable night of music, entertainment, stories & heartfelt expressions of love, for an extraordinary man who has dedicated his life to making other people’s lives better,” says the special birthday website.
“Help us celebrate a man who has impacted so many by helping him save and transform more children’s lives,” it continues, “through his favorite charity, Jewel’s Inspiring Children Foundation.”
Numerous celebrities have RSVP’d for the virtual event, including musician Jewel, who is the founder of the charity the Wozniaks are supporting.
Other stars that have RSVP’d include Chris Rock and Emmylou Harris, Drew Carey, Mark Cuban, William Shatner, Marina Sirtis, and George Takei, Jay Leno, Richard Branson, and Nancy Pelosi. They and around 50 other notables will be bringing what the organizing team says will fill the virtual surprise party “music, comedy, magic, and stories.”
