What happens when you're skateboarding, hit by a car, severely injured and undergo four brain surgeries? In the case of dancer Kim Hagen, tonight a bunch of artists and musicians throw a benefit to help pay off nearly a million dollars in medical bills.

If your you, ten bucks gets eight hours of live music, DJ's, and registered for some nice door prizes (like wine tastings, gift certificates and a good bottle of tequila.) The lineup features headliners the Gene Butler Band, Thomas Ian Nichalaus and a bevy of other acts. There's also a silent auction with art, entertainment and sports memorabilia including some slick Elvis stuff and an autographed Reggie Bush/Matt Leinart photo of "The Push" from their famous USC Notre Dame game. Proceeds from the auction and the cash bar go to the Kim Hagen Foundation, and you can eat for free.
