“American Idol”
season five winner and Bally’s Las Vegas headliner Taylor Hicks presented a check for €10,000 (approx. US $12,000) to the Wounded Warrior Project during his show on Tuesday, July 31 (Photo credit:

On Thursday, July 26, Hicks won The BiLLe Celeb Charity Challenge, an online contest where “Superfans” upload celebrities and “Fans” vote daily, ultimately directing a pool of charitable donations to the winning celeb’s favorite charity. Each week, the Superfan who nominated the winner and one Fan who helped vote that celeb to victory have a chance to take part in a ceremonial check presentation.

Superfan Holly Dey from Connecticut received a final push with the help of Taylor Hicks himself, which helped her to gain the win.
