The Cuffley resident is hoping to raise a further �2,500 for the �2.4m unit which provides diagnostic and outpatient services for the women of Hertfordshire.
During the concert Dean will perform chart-topping tracks such as Lucky Stars, Lydia, Woman of Mine and Ariel together with recent tracks.
Richard, a regular contributor to Channel Four's Countdown, is the "master of nostalgic comedy" with his distinctive blend of music and humour.
He said: "It's a great pleasure being asked to appear with my old friend Dean Friedman.
"He's someone I have a lot of respect for. I last appeared in your area quite a while ago and look forward to the show - and am only too happy to support such a great cause."
Other artists confirmed are singers Holly Rose and Ben Smith and Welwyn Harmony Chorus.
Tickets cost �17.50.
The concert starts at 7.30pm.
