Jennifer Garner is set to attend the July 19 event at University of Charleston in Kanawha City, W.Va., to raise money for Herbert Hoover High School, which was damaged in the June 23 floods.
Actress Jennifer Garner is scheduled to participate in a fundraiser Tuesday, July 19, for Herbert Hoover High School in Clendenin.
Garner, who grew up in Charleston, will join West Virginia Sen. Corey Palumbo, D-Kanawha, and Herbert Hoover Principal Mike Kelley at the event for the flood-ravaged school. The fundraiser begins at 6 p.m.
“From the moment she heard about the flooding, Jennifer has been working hard to raise money and provide supplies for flood victims,” Palumbo said in a news release from the event’s organizers. “As a strong supporter of education, she was heartbroken to hear about the flooding at Herbert Hoover High School and has been working hard to help.”
Tickets for the event will be available on a first-come first-serve basis at http://www.supportherberthoover.eventbrite.com/ and will cost $100, $500, or $1,000. Tickets costing $100 are general admission, while $500 tickets include a professional photograph with Garner and $1,000 tickets include a photograph and private reception prior to the event.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be collected by the Save the Children organization and earmarked for Herbert Hoover High School.
Garner graduated from George Washington High School in Charleston and starred in the hit television show “Alias.” She also will star in the upcoming film “Tribes from Palos Verdes.”
