On Nov. 11, several Hollywood stars are scheduled to attend a celebrity-studded fundraiser and pre-auction reception for the victims of Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma and Rita to benefit Save the Children
. Included in the auction is a record-setting $440,000 Porsche driven by Jay Leno
and David Donohue.
In Atlanta on September 7, 2005, history was both made and remembered when a Porsche Carrera GT production car, driven by racecar driver David Donohue and "The Tonight Show" host Jay Leno, set a series of Grand American speed records at Talladega Superspeedway, where David's father, Mark Donohue, set a similar series of records in a Porsche racecar 30 years ago. As the records were being set, Porsche decided to donate the car to an auction designed to raise funds to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Celebs will autograph photos taken with the Porsche for the auction. Stars scheduled to appear include: Jay Leno, Kevin Dillon
