Las Vegas Strip headliner and magician Criss Angel hosted the first HELP show on Monday at the Luxor.

HELP stands for Heal Every Life Possible. Angel came up with the idea after his son Johnny was diagnosed with leukemia last year and began treatments.

The show was a one-night-only performance featuring a star-studded lineup of world-class entertainers, comedians, music legends and sports icons.

The funds raised during the event will be used pediatric cancer research and treatment. Angel's goal is to raise $1 million during a single evening with all proceeds benefiting the cause.

There were many celebrity appearances at the event including Gary Oldman, Mike Tyson, Tom Green, Andrew Dice Clay, Tony Orlando, Vince Neil, Richie Sambora, Corey Feldman, Carrot Top, the Imagine Dragons and many more.

There was a live and silent auction of various prizes and experiences donated by other Las Vegas headliners and various celebrities.
