Photos from the Wounded Warrior Project benefit at LA Live

Monday evening was the opening night for the 1st Annual Rocktoberfest at LA Live, which began with a charity jam with the proceeds from this evenings function going to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Gene Simmons got on stage and played a set with the band along with several others. Wolfgang Puck provided the food for an Octoberfest meal with a California twist. There were lots of celebrities whose names I do not know, but James Gandolfini, Nikki Sixx and Bill Engvall were among those I did recognize. The true stars were the Wounded Warriors that attended tonight’s event.

Besides the food, beer and live entertainment there was a silent auction for everything from beer, to signed guitars to a wedding package. This silent auction goes on until Rocktoberfest ends on Sunday, October 21. Every night there are different events going on at LA Live so if you are looking for something fun to do this week, you might want to check out LA Live. You can get more details at Rocktoberfest.com.

On it was the image of one soldier carrying another, obviously wounded soldier, with the words, “Wounded Warrior Project” below. Upon closer inspection I could see that it had been signed by many people from different branches of the armed forces. I made a mental note to investigate the Wounded Warrior Project and see if there was some way I could get involved.
