Steve Spielberg in Philly for Shoah Foundation dinner
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Steven Spielberg will be in Philadelphia Monday night, but it has nothing to do with scouting locations for his next blockbuster.
Instead, the Oscar-winning director will attend the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s fundraiser honoring Comcast CEO Brian Roberts.
The Philly Daily News reports that Spielberg is expected to tour the city’s National Museum of American Jewish History during the day. The director’s Righteous Persons Foundation donated $1 million toward the museum’s construction efforts in 2008, “donat[ing] his first 8mm film camera to be displayed at the museum, which opened at its new home in November.”
The paper reports that Jon Bon Jovi “will perform at tonight’s benefit for Shoah, which works to preserve memories of Holocaust survivors and those of other genocides.”
