John Travolta’s Charity Buzz Lunch for a Good Cause So Far Isn’t Finding Many Bidders


Doesn’t anyone want to have lunch with John Travolta? There’s an auction going on to raise money for the Louis Zamperini Foundation– remember he was the Olympian subject of “Unbroken”? His foundation helps kids. Lunch with Travolta is set at $20,000, in LA or in Central Florida (god forbid) and it’s not required to be at a Scientology Center. Still, only a few bids have come in, and they’re only up to $6,250. Come on! He’ll teach the “Saturday Night Fever” walk, the “Pulp Fiction” dance, and you can ask him about his hair. Doesn’t that sound like fun? Maybe he’ll give you a preview of his John Gotti movie.
