Mickey Rooney, famous actor known for National Velvet (1944) with Elizabeth Taylor, The Bridges at Toko-Ri (as a Navy fighter pilot) (1954), Black Stallion (1979) and most recently Night at the Museum (2006), is appearing at the San Diego Air & Space Museum’s “Hollywood Studs & Starlets” fundraising event on May 7. All proceeds from the event benefit the museum’s youth educational programs.
Rooney is a famed Hollywood star whose appearances on film, stage and television span almost 90 years. He has won multiple awards, including an Honorary Academy Award, an Emmy and a Golden Globe Award. Working as a performer since childhood, he rose to stardom as a teenager, and he has had one of the longest careers of any actor.
Hollywood Studs & Starlets takes off at 5:30 p.m. Cost ranges from $250-$300. The evening includes dancing, special dance performances, live entertainment (The Jazz Project Big Band with special guest Dave Scott), red carpet and paparazzi, celebrity impersonators, silent and live auctions and more, according to museum officials.
