Allen and several of his Bears teammates will be on hand at the event, which benefits Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors organization.

The gala will include a cocktail reception, dinner, live and silent auction, and live performances by Grammy-nominated country artist James Otto and '80s Tribute Band MetalHead. All proceeds will go to improving the lives of America's wounded war veterans by building and retrofitting homes to meet the needs of veterans who have suffered life-altering injuries.

Homes for Wounded Warriors is a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of raising money to build or modify the homes of America's injured military veterans. It was established in October 2009 after Allen returned home from a trip to U.S. military bases in the Middle East.  

He was moved by the commitment, dedication and sacrifices that the soldiers make every day to protect our freedom. For more information on Allen's foundation, visit:
