Swank will be hosting the Big Game Big Give charity event, which was named the best Super Bowl party of 2010 last year. The Texas-themed event brings together celebrities and athletes on the weekend of the Super Bowl, all in the name of charity: The Giving Back Fund hosts the event with help from title sponsor Starkey Hearing Foundation, and additional sponsors like ONEHOPE, Dewar’s, Aston Martin, and others. The event itself is held on the 5-acre estate of restaurateur Phil Romano and is limited to only 350 attendees at $1,000 a ticket. Last year’s guest list included Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (who will, of course, be playing on Sunday). The Saturday party follows a Friday night art auction for The Giving Back Fund, hosted by former NFLer-turned-sportscaster Troy Aikman.
Swank’s record of activism is a good one, as the Oscar-winning actress has backed hydrogen cars and hair donation for cancer patients in the past, so she’s a great pick as the host of this charitable event. And hey, it will help make up for her stopping her vegetarian diet!
