‘Harold & Kumar 2’ cast, crew to host public fundraising party for Carol Trevino

The makers of “Harold & Kumar 2” will host a fundraising party on Saturday, March 10, at artspace.

Money raised through the event will be donated to the children of Carol Trevino. The Ohio native worked on “Harold & Kumar 2” as an assistant to the producers. She was killed in a car accident south of Shreveport on Feb. 13.

The party will take place between 5 and 7 p.m. and will be open to the public. A $10 donation will be requested at the door.

Inside artspace’s galleries, partygoers will be able to bid on a variety of movie memorabilia donated to a live auction. Items will include autographed photos, posters, DVD, scripts, storyboards and sheet music.

Some items will be signed by the stars of “Harold & Kumar 2” like Kal Penn, John Cho and Neil Patrick Harris. Other items will be signed by a variety of celebrities, including Will Ferrell, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Bacon, Jane Fonda, Jon Heder, Bret Easton Ellis, Samuel L. Jackson, Sam Raimi, Frank Darabont and Andre Braugher.

Partygoers will also be able to bid on a visit to the set of “Harold & Kumar 2,” which finishes filming in northwest Louisiana on March 14.

Artspace is located at 710 Texas St. in downtown Shreveport.

Cast and filmmakers will be present at the party.

I’ll dish more details as they become available.
