Choose Between Two Options

After walking down the red carpet, VIP guests at the Hold’em for Heroes event head to a mixer where they can have their photo taken with professional athletes, rock stars, and Hollywood celebrities. Take home prizes from the live auction or "first bid wins" silent auction and receive double starting chips for the poker tournament. Hosted by former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason, the event benefits charities including the Wounded Warrior Project and The Gleason Initiative Foundation, an organization that helps people with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease.

At the Old School Throwback Party hosted during the Big Game, VIP guests nosh on hors d'oeuvres and sip drinks at the open bar before dancing to a special performance by Tone-Lōc. Then they revel in nostalgia while playing vintage arcade games alongside stars of the silver screen, discussing whether any amphibians were harmed during the making of Frogger.

The Aces & Angels Foundation

As noted on CBSDFW.com, Gene Simmons and longtime partner Shannon Tweed hosted a live-music event coordinated by The Aces & Angels Foundation, which was later featured on Simmons's A&E reality show. The party was just one of many fundraisers that the nonprofit organization has created to provide assistance for active-duty and former members of the United States Armed Forces. They visit US military installations with a cadre of famous musicians, Hollywood celebrities, and athletes, doing their part to boost morale and the instances of excited, high-pitched screaming within the armed forces. They also organize charitable, star-studded events such as poker tournaments, VIP parties, and chili cook-offs.

Proceeds from the events benefit charities such as the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps veterans recover from physical and mental injuries, and The Gleason Initiative Foundation, which raises public awareness of ALS and provides equipment and services to individuals with muscular diseases or injuries.
