Proceeds will benefit the Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) mission to build and donate specially adapted custom homes for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, enabling them to rebuild their lives. The charity auction will give shoppers the opportunity to bid on personal Zoom experiences, luxury items, and autographed memorabilia from various movie stars, musicians, and sports figures to help achieve the nonprofit’s mission.
CNN’s Jake Tapper, a longtime HFOT supporter and mission ambassador, along with George Clooney, Mindy Kaling, and HFOT Mission Ambassador Wynonna Judd, have enlisted the help of friends, namely movie stars and entertainment icons, to arrange an extensive assortment of auction items up for grabs to benefit Homes For Our Troops this Veterans Day. Tapper’s fellow Celebrity Auction co-host and actor George Clooney, has generously donated his Omega Seamaster 300 Gold Watch to auction off. Other celebrities who have donated items include: Adam Scott, Al Yankovic, Alyssa Milano, Ben Stiller, Beth Dover & Jo Lo Truglio, Bob Saget, Bryan Cranston, Chelsea Handler, Chris Evans, Dave Matthews, Don Lemon, Elizabeth Banks, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Jerry Seinfeld, Judy Woodruff, Jim Gaffigan, Kevin O’Leary, Patton Oswalt, Phil Rosenthal, Richard Marx and many more.
“Even with everything going on in the world right now, there remains a need for severely wounded Veterans to have mortgage-free specially adapted custom homes from Homes For Our Troops. It is an honor to be an Ambassador for this organization on our annual Celebrity Auction again. Each year we increase the amount of support from well-known stars, musicians, celebrities, artists, and sports figures. We are expecting this year’s auction to be a great success,” says Jake Tapper.
“I am happy to be joining this auction for another year and bring attention to Homes For Our Troops’ important mission. The adapted homes built by this nonprofit help Veterans regain their independence and move forward in their lives,” says George Clooney.
“I am thrilled to be a part of Homes For Our Troops 4th Annual Celebrity Auction again and even more excited to headline this year. HFOT is doing so much for severely injured Veterans by providing them with the adapted homes they need and deserve,” says Mindy Kaling.
“We are looking forward to another exciting auction with Jake Tapper and his team,” says HFOT President Tom Landwermeyer. “With the challenges of the ongoing global pandemic, it is paramount that severely injured post-9/11 Veterans have specially adapted custom homes where they can safeguard themselves and their families.
