Celebrities are coming together to support wounded veterans at the Wounded Warrior Project® Courage Awards & Benefit Dinner® May 16 at Gotham Hall. Mario Lopez, host of the entertainment news magazine show Extra, is hosting the event.

The event honors both wounded warriors and the supporters who help make WWP programs and services possible.

Lopez has hosted Extra since 2008. His career in television and film spans more than 30 years. Among his credits include This is Us, Jane the Virgin, Brooklyn 99, The Rookie, Dancing with the Stars, and Saved by the Bell.

Former America's Got Talent contestant Johnny Manuel will perform the national anthem at the event. Other celebrities in attendance will include country music performers Luke Pell and The Band Steele.

WWE wrestler Dolph Ziggler will host a livestream from the red carpet before the event on the WWP Instagram page at www.instagram.com/wwp. Once the event begins, viewers can interact via WWP's Facebook and Twitch livestreams at www.facebook.com/wwp and https://twitch.tv/wwp.

There will also be a silent auction that supporters can participate in, both online and on-site. Check out the items you can bid on at http://wwp.news/CABD_Auction.

Veteran donations go directly toward providing critical mental and physical health programs and services to wounded warriors and their families. They never pay a penny for WWP programs because they paid their dues on the battlefield. WWP is committed to helping injured veterans achieve their highest ambition.
