George Lucas Funds Biggest Donation in USC History

More Southern California news: George Lucas, already a major donor to the University of Southern California, today announced a $175 million donation to build a new state-of-the-art facility for USC's film school.

I note this not only because I'm a STAR WARS fan, but because our daughter attends said university. :)

Today it was also announced that Mr. Lucas will be the Grand Marshal of the 2007 Rose Parade. 2007, as all STAR WARS fans know, will mark the 30th anniversary of the release of the first STAR WARS film.

Let's just hope that this year Stephanie Edwards isn't left covering the parade in the rain...

Thank you for a great link. My boys were fascinated to read about the Clone Troopers who will be in the parade.

Best wishes, Laura
