  • Matt was unable to attend the Shjon Podein Children's Foundation events last weekend in Rochester, Minnesota, but still made a contribution. Thanks to the Rochester Post-Bulletin for access to the articles (excerpts below), including the celebrity participants:

    Barry Melrose, the hockey analyst and former coach; Chuck Foreman, former Minnesota Vikings great; Brad Paisley, country music star on the rise; Kimberly Williams-Paisley, his wife and well-known actress; dozens of current NHL and top college hockey players; musicians, actors. Actor Matt Damon shows up when he can and always sends a big donation if he can't make it. The event just keeps getting bigger.

    Podein's friends Matt Damon and Ben Affleck didn't make it to Rochester this year, but their contribution -- two tickets to the premiere of the Project Greenlight Vegas Palms movie -- fetched $20,000, the evening's highest bid.

    Two tickets to the premiere of Damon's next movie brought in $15,000.
