His passionate and ongoing support for Angelman's Syndrome has helped raised public awareness about the disease and directly impacted financial support for pharmaceutical research.

Presenters will include singer/actress Miley Cyrus, award-winning actor Terrence Howard, "Dancing with the Stars" winner J.R.

Now through December 8, Facebook fans of Chase Community Giving (CCG) and some Chase online customers will determine how much each charity will receive by voting for their favorite featured charity online. The winning charity will receive a $1 million grant from Chase, to be revealed during the television broadcast.
