Kiss’ Gene Simmons to host 2011 Salute to U.S. Troops

First of all, best wishes to everyone on this Remembrance Day (Canada) and Veterans Day (U.S.), and to military personnel around the world who work, and have worked, to try and keep the world a safer place for us all.

Gene Simmons of Kiss will host 1,000 Texas servicemen and women and more than 3,500 partygoers at the "2011 Aces and Angels Salute to the Troops," a benefit supporting The Wounded Warrior Project and the USO.

It is the first major event of the big game week in Dallas and takes place at Fair Park's Centennial Hall, Wednesday, February 2, 2011, 6 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.

"There is one man who will blow the roof off Dallas and that man is Gene Simmons. This is absolutely the one event that you definitely don't want to miss," said Executive Producer Michael Eakman.

Simmons will be personally escorting a select group of servicemen from Ft. Hood to Dallas for the Aces and Angels Salute to the Troops via caravan and hosting a small group of injured troops at the big game. His Aces and Angels Salute to the Troops Dallas visit will be documented for his A&E reality series Gene Simmons Family Jewels, and Aces and Angels Salute to the Troops attendees will experience the live filming of the one of the episodes.

This year - for the first-time ever, Aces and Angels will be unveiling a one-of-a-kind Gene Simmons Salute to the Troops Custom Chopper at the event.

Aces and Angels began in 2007 and to date has raised more than $427,000 for various non-profit organizations including the Wounded Warrior Project (WPP) and the USO. The mission of Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors.
