One of the biggest and best events coming to Dallas for the football championship will be Aces & Angels “Salute to the Troops” hosted by legendary rock star Gene Simmons from KISS.
Aces & Angels is getting a jump on the festivities by taking place on Wednesday, February 2nd. The party kicks off at 6pm in the The Centennial Building at Fair Park.
In addition to the national media outlets that will be covering this event, there will also be an A&E production crew filming Gene Simmons’ reality show Family Jewels. Partygoers will enjoy five hours of live music with performances by Five for Fighting, Little Texas, The Grascals, Rival Sons, and 4Troops (a quartet of military veterans).
Aces & Angels supports the Wounded Warrior Project and the USO. Gene Simmons will personally be escorting a group of 1,000 Texas soldiers from Ft. Hood and he’ll take a few injured troops to the Sunday game.
Many famous actors, comedians, rock stars and professional athletes will be playing the Vegas-style casino games and partaking in the gourmet food. Celebrities at past Aces & Angels parties include Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Shannon Elizabeth, Dane Cook, and Derek Hough.
There will also be a cigar lounge, VIP cabanas, and silent & live auctions. For the first-time ever, a special-edition Gene Simmons “Salute to the Troops” custom motorcycle will be unveiled at the event. Plus, someone will win a seat in the 2011 World Series of Poker by playing in the Aces & Angels poker tournament.
