Enrique Iglesias + the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving! That's match made in Turkey Day heaven! The Cowboys game on Turkey Day is as much a part of the holiday as cranberry sauce itself! It's all for a good cause, too!
Iglesias will be the featured performer for The Salvation Army's 15th annual Red Kettle Kickoff during halftime of the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game against the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 24, 2011 at 4:15 PM ET on CBS. Enrique's live nationally televised performance will mark the start of the 120th anniversary of the Army's iconic Red Kettle Campaign, which began in San Francisco in 1891.
The iconic kettle campaign is the largest and longest running fundraiser of its kind and raised a record $142 million in 2010, with more than $1.4 billion raised since the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day partnership began. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of this iconic musical partnership, fans will have an opportunity to win an expense-paid trip to see the Cowboy's game and halftime show performance by signing up to be an online virtual bell ringer by going here.
"This is a great opportunity – to spend Thanksgiving in Dallas where music, football and helping others truly comes together," said the singer in a statement. "The Dallas Cowboys and The Salvation Army have a great partnership -- throw in some great music and I know we can get viewers dancing and encourage donors to give generously this Christmas when so many need a hand up."
"We are more than excited to have superstar artist Enrique Iglesias kickoff the Red Kettle Campaign. We know he will put on a halftime performance that will commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Cowboys partnership with The Salvation Army in style," said Charlotte Jones Anderson, Dallas Cowboys' executive vice president of brand management and Chairperson of the Salvation Army's National Advisory Board.
