Say what you want about Kevin Costner, but we’re going to call him a class act. After walking away unharmed last week when a stage collapsed he was meant to perform on, the actor/rocker let it be known that if he could help out any of the victims, he would.
A 35-year old concertgoer, Donna Moore, who also was hired to work audio for Costner’s gig tragically died when a speaker fell on her during the collapse. Costner has decided to auction off a dinner with himself to raise money that will go to Donna’s children.
Costner helped victims that included one of his band members immediately after the incident happened. He was eager to continue that help for the future stating, “We hope to return to Alberta in the future to help with the healing.”
Its nice to see when faced with tragedy, there are stars that are eager to help. Costner stuck to his words and though tragic, his help will hopefully provide the well needed healing those families deserve.
Thousands were on hand to enjoy the Big Valley Jamboree, a Canadian music festival. Thunderstorms were blamed for the collapse that left more than 75 others injured.
