Since the conclusion of Star Trek: Enterprise, star Anthony Montgomery has been involved in numerous charity events to raise money for young people.
Montgomery's home town paper, The Indianapolis Star, reports that the actor will be directing and starring a play to raise money for the media centre at the Washington Community School which he attended. The Travis Mayweather actor will appear in August Wilson's Jitney in a production directed by Obba Babatunde and co-starring Bill Cobb.
The one-time performance will take place at the Madame Walker Theatre on September 17th, with proceeds going purchase equipment that Montgomery said was not available when he was a student at the Washington Community School.
In addition, the actor will take part along with several other television alumni in the Third Annual Zeke Lerner Celebrity Bowl-a-thon in Chatsworth, California. On Saturday, August 20th at AMF Rocket Lanes, fans will have the opportunity to bowl with and watch celebrities to raise money for Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, targeting the disease which is the leading genetic killer of children under two.
A list of other participants is here. Last year the event brought in $26,000.00.
And at the recent Trek Expo in Tulsa, Montgomery attended a dinner-dance to benefit the Tulsa Boys Ranch. "Several of the boys were in attendance, and Anthony personally spoke to every one of them," reported a guest at the GeckoTech Forums.
