Magician Criss Angel Gives BACK By Hosting HEAL (Heal Every Life Possible)
Superstar magician Criss Angel will bring some of the world’s biggest stars together this fall as he embarks on the challenge of a lifetime: finding a cure for pediatric cancer. Angel will host HELP (Heal Every Life Possible), a star-studded one-night-only performance benefitting pediatric cancer research and treatment with the aim of finding a cure at Luxor Las Vegas on Sept. 12, 2016, with performances and appearances from Jerry Lewis, Tony Orlando, Siegfried & Roy, Gary Oldman, Wayne Newton, Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather, Gene Simmons, Andrew Dice Clay, Chuck Liddell, Richie Sambora, Vince Neil, Dee Snider, Tom Green, Randy Couture, Carrot Top, Blue Man Group and Cirque du Soleil®, to name a few.
Tickets are available now at CrissAngelHELP.com
With the same passion and grandeur Criss lends to his craft, he is setting the ambitious goal to raise $1 million in a single evening. Every dollar generated will benefit pediatric cancer research, treatment and ultimately a cure through the Johnny Crisstopher Children’s Charitable Foundation, a nonprofit organization named after Criss’ young son who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) last year.
“Every three minutes a child will be diagnosed with cancer, and less than 70 cents out of every $100 raised by the American Cancer Society goes to pediatric cancer,” Criss said. “We must bring awareness and funding now to help these children and families living with this nightmare.”
Rallying his celebrity friends and fellow entertainers, Criss has assembled a superstar line-up for this one-of-a-kind event with appearances and performances by: iconic actor and comedian Jerry Lewis; singer and artist Tony Orlando; legendary magicians Siegfried & Roy and Lance Burton, comedians Howie Mandel, Andrew Dice Clay and Tom Green; fellow Las Vegas headliners Blue Man Group, Carrot Top, Cirque du Soleil artists, Gordie Brown, Terry Fator and Mr. Las Vegas, himself - Wayne Newton; actors Gary Oldman and Miles Brown; music legends Gene Simmons, Richie Sambora, Dee Snider, Vince Neil, Taboo; and World Heavyweight Championship Boxers Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather and MMA champions Randy “The Natural” Couture and Chuck Liddell. Other exciting stars and performances will be announced as they are added to the lineup.
In addition to celebrity performances, attendees will have the chance to win priceless experiences and memorabilia in HELP’s live and silent auction. One-of-a-kind experiences including a weekend at Criss’ personal estate, Serenity, with all the VIP trappings; a private magic lesson and behind-the-scenes backstage pass to see how Criss pulls off the spectacular illusions in MINDFREAK LIVE!®; a luxurious Caesars Palace Celine Dion weekend including dinner at restaurant Guy Savoy, a two-night stay and tickets to see and meet Celine Dion; a UFC 207 VIP package with tickets and a meet-and-greet with Dana White; show tickets and meet-and-greets with Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears; autographed memorabilia from Oprah Winfrey, Shaquille O’Neal, Floyd Mayweather, Elton John, Mike Tyson and many more. Additional experiences and items will continue to be added.
“I can promise this will be a night to remember,” said Criss. “Thanks to my celebrity friends, many unsung heroes and my insanely generous partners, Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts/Luxor Hotel & Casino, for the outpouring of love and support and making this incredible night possible.”
HELP will be held at the Criss Angel Theater at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Monday, Sept. 12, 2016. Doors open for the silent auction and the gold carpet begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by a celebrity auction at 7 p.m. and the live show at 8 p.m.
