Comedy actor Will Ferrell
will host a live fundraising auction for a charity his cancer-surviving friend founded.
star and his wife Viveca
will host the event during the 15th Annual Cancer for College Golf Classic
in September, which also includes a golf tournament, banquet and after-party. Craig Pollard
, who was friends with Ferrell at the University of Southern California, set up the Cancer for College charity after he lost both his feet when he twice battled Hodgkin's lymphoma.
The charity aims to help cancer survivors seek college education - and Ferrell has supported the charity since 2006, calling it "one of the purest charities" he has ever seen.
Pollard says, "They (Ferrell and his wife) bring an instant awareness to the charity that we probably couldn't have achieved on our own. In life, people can choose to be charitable with their time or their money. Will and Viveca have been extremely generous to Cancer for College with both. He really goes out of his way to make sure everyone from the participants to the scholarship recipients and their families have a memorable day."
