Proceeds from the benefit went to Johnny Crisstopher Children's Charitable Foundation, an organization Angel created after his son was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The charity is working to "raise awareness of pediatric cancer and provide funds for research, treatment, and, ultimately, a cure."
