Stars Team Up To Honour Adrienne Shelly At Fundraiser
Rosanna Arquette, Keri Russell and Edie Falco are among the stars auctioning lunch with themselves in an online fundraiser for the charity set up to honour murdered filmmaker Adrienne Shelly. Prizes on the eBay auction include lunches with Arquette, Russell, Falco and Cheryl Hines and memorabilia signed by Matt Dillon and the late Richard Pryor. All proceeds will go to The Adrienne Shelly Foundation (ASF), a non-profit organisation that awards film school scholarships and grants to women filmmakers. The ASF is also holding its inaugural fundraising gala in New York City on Monday (12Nov07) night, where singer Alanis Morissette will perform and stars including Dillon, Falco, Mary-Louise Parker and Ally Sheedy are expected to attend. Shelly was murdered in New York in November 2006. Construction worker Diego Pillco was arrested days later and claims he killed the actress/director after she complained from noise coming from his apartment downstairs. He is currently awaiting trial for the slaying.
