His one-night only benefit event is going to take place on September 12 at the Luxor Hotel and Casino on September 12, where Angel will be joined by some esteemed entertainers, comedians, musicians and sports legends.
HELP is an acronym for "Heal Every Life Possible." The performers that will be a part of this charitable event will include Jerry Lewis, Tony Orlando, Mike Tyson, Wayne Newton, Carrot Top, and magicians Siegfried & Roy, among many others.

His goal is to raise $1 million in that evening, where every single dollar will go directly to pediatric cancer research and treatment, to help find a cure through the Johnny Crisstopher Children's Charitable Foundation.
Angel and Shaunyl Benson are the parents of his two-year-old son, Johnny Crisstopher, and they were both devastated when their boy was diagnosed with leukemia. At that moment, the world renowned magician decided to do his part in an effort to help cure pediatric cancer. The parents are filming a documentary about their son’s battle with cancer, which is entitled "1095," for the amount of days he will undergo treatment for his leukemia.
