As much as we would like it, Matthew McConaughey and Drew Brees' charity event had nothing to do with them taking off their shirts and being topless. Whoever put together the event is probably kicking themselves now that we've pointed it out!
On Friday, Matthew and Drew hosted the Amazing Race Charity Event in New Orleans, raising money for each of their respective charity organizations.
The Got Your 6 campaign is a Hollywood-backed veteran campaign that just launched American Icons at an even in NYC last night — and the celebs were OUT for it!
Got Your 6 is designed to show that veterans and military families should be seen as civic assets and leaders who will reinvigorate our communities.
The event was hosted by Tracy Morgan, and Sheryl Crow even performed! Celebrities Alison Sweeney, Camila Alves, Marcus Samuelsson and others also showed up to support the cause!
Sounds fab — more pics (below)!

Richard Swanson had a goal, and that goal was to dribble a soccer ball from Seattle all the way to Brazil, and do it in time for the 2014 World Cup! Easy, right? Just do a little bit at a time?
Maybe that should have been the case, but we're sad to report that Richard has died after being struck by a pickup truck while walking south on the Highway 101 in Oregon. The 10,000 mile trip had basically just begun — just on May 1st.
Leonardo DiCaprio took some time out of his busy schedule to oversee The 11th Hour Auction, which was held at Christie's in New York. The money was set to go to conservation charities and help the world as a whole — and HOLY SHIZZ did the auction deliver!!
The auction had works by many of the world's most preeminent contemporary artists, and brought in $38.8 MILLION… meaning it was one of the largest successes of its kind!
Not only is Lady Antebellum a Grammy award-winning band, they also have hearts of gold!
Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley took a break from promoting their new album Golden and stopped by Kravis Children's Hospital at Mount Sinai to brighten up the day of some patients!
Leonardio DiCaprio isn't just all about looking good on the silver screen — he's also all about DOING good out in the world! He's teaming up with a top auction house to sell off an impressive collection of art to raise funds for conservation causes. You might have heard of the auction house: Christie's!
The 11th Hour Auction will be working with Leo and include 33 works by the likes of Banksy, Peter Beard and Julian Schnabel!
Here's what Leo had to say:
Well this is certainly a surprise!
Attendees at the Lupus LA Orange Ball got a
little HUGE treat as Toni Braxton took the stage to put on a very special performance!
The Unbreak My Heart singer took a short break from her retirement and sang a couple of her songs at the star-studded charity event, and of course she sounded amazing!
Ch-ch-check her awesome performance of Breathe Again (above)!
Toni had a lupus scare herself not too long ago, so it makes sense that she would want to give back to an organization that is hoping to thwart the disease once and for all!
She even showed some love for her doctor, Dr. Shapira, and pulled him onstage for her performance of Another Sad Love Song! Because nothing says "Thank you" like embarassing someone in front of a crowded room of people! LOLz!
But seriously, we are SO SO happy to see Toni back on the stage doing what she does best! Even if it was just for the night!
Check out the rest of her performance …AFTER THE JUMP!!
