He said that by organizing the benefit he is taking the kindness people extended to his family, and "paying it forward."
The staff of the hotel is doing its part to help Morgan pay it forward.
"All of the kitchen staff, and all of the servers will be volunteering their time for the event," said Morgan.
According to Morgan, another goal of the benefit will be to raise awareness about cancer, and the staff will provide cancer awareness materials to people who attend.
"The management of the property is humbled and inspired by the selflessness of the employees and how they look out for each other," said Monsoor Mustafa, the general manager of the hotel.
So far, the event has about 50 confirmed guests; however, Morgan said he also expects other supporters to show up as well.
Those who would like to donate, but cannot attend the event, can send donations to the Best Western Sovereign Hotel, 1228 Western Ave., Albany, NY 12203.
