John Travolta, Kelly Preston and their daughter Ella Bleu made an emotional public appearance in their hometown of Ocala, FL Friday, and it was a night to remember. It was their first public outing in Ocala since the January death of John & Kelly’s son, Jett.
The family hosted a special screening of their new movie, Old Dogs, that raised $37,500 for five local charities. The Travoltas spent 30 minutes on the red carpet, signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans.
“Kelly, Ella and I want to thank all of you for supporting us over the last year,” John told the crowd of several hundred locals. “It’s meant the world to us. We know that we have a community…..We appreciate it. Jett appreciates it.”
