Clooney (and mashed potatoes) at the Movies

Villagers cleaned up real good for the "Clooney At the Movies" Auction Gala, Friday night, June 25, held at Antioch University Midwest as a benefit for the Little Art Theatre. The event included a silent auction, wine and buffet, video tribute by Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar, live auction, and journalist, author and guest speaker Nick Clooney addressing "The Movies That Changed Us." Jenny Cowperthwaite, Executive Director of the Little Art Theatre, was visibly moved by the outpouring of support for her "baby" which she has struggled to maintain for 38 years. Proceeds from the event will keep the theatre in operation as a non-profit venture. The highlight of the event was George Clooney's dad with the Mashed Potato Bar coming in a close second.
