John Travolta donated $15,000 to central Florida tornado victims at the premiere of his new film, “Wild Hogs.” Travolta presented a personal check for $15,000 to Lady Lake Mayor Max Pullen before a screening of the biker-buddy comedy Friday night that raised an additional $15,000 in donations. A string of tornadoes killed 21 people, many from Lady Lake, and destroyed hundreds of homes as they skipped across central Florida on Feb. 2. “These things happen in Florida and when they happen we all have to do something to help,” said Travolta, who has lived in Ocala for about four years. “I just felt the time was right,” the 53-year-old actor said. “We’re promoting a movie. I think the best movie openings and promotions are when you can do it for charity and help people. I live here. These are my people.” Pullen said he was moved by Travolta’s gesture, and Ocala Mayor Randy Ewers presented the actor with a key to the city. “This means a lot and helps lift the spirit of our people,” Pullen said. “When they know somebody as big a star as John Travolta cares about them, it makes a difference.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
