CSI: New York leading man Gary Sinise (Mac Taylor) will be the special honoree at "A Night of Honour", a benefit being held on October 4 in Universal City, California to raise money for the Iraq Star Foundation.
Sinise was chosen as the guest of honour for the benefit because of "his compassion and commitment to our troops and the children of Iraq." Sinise travels around the world to perform for American service members with his Lt Dan Band. He also co-founded Operation Iraqi Children, which provides much-needed supplies for children in Iraq. Sinise is also a spokesperson for the US Disabled Veterans Life Memorial Foundation.
"A Night of Honour" will feature a performance from comedian and talk show host Dennis Miller. The evening will also feature auctions to raise money for the Iraq Star Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that helps wounded soldiers in need of reconstructive surgery. Men and women who have benefited from the Iraq Star Foundation will share their stories at the event.
In addition to Sinise and Miller, "A Night of Honour" will feature Dr Phil McGraw, Scott Baio, Adam Baldwin, Stephen Baldwin, Robert Davi, Paul Stanley, Tom Dreesen, Angie Everhart, Kevin Farley, Marla Maples, Robin McGraw, Katharine McPhee, John Ratzenberger, Kevin Sorbo, Kristy Swanson, Karri Turner and Jon Voight. The evening will start out with a celebrity red, white and blue carpet arrival at the Universal Hilton. "A Night of Honour" is sponsored by TriWest Healthcare Alliance, American Airlines and MilitaryConnection.com.
