Celebrities and former football stars teamed up in Baldwin Hills Tuesday night for a special football charity event that benefits kids with special needs.

It’s called the Stars and Stripes Bowl and it gives hundreds of Los Angeles-based kids the opportunity to play flag football against NFL legends and some of the biggest names in entertainment.

A second game featured NFL greats as they went head-to-head with wounded warriors.
