John Travolta and Kelly Preston made a special announcement when they attended a charity premiere of the new animated film Bolt in their hometown of Ocala, Florida, on Friday night.

The charity premiere raised $55,000 for the local Boys & Girls Club of Marion County, a figure that got cheers from the crowds that turned out to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars. However, Travolta had a bigger surprise in store.

“And just because I’m in a good mood, I’m gonna add another $10,000 to that.”

Travolta is well known for his support of the Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of America, and has held charity premieres of his films for the organization in the past.

“We’re part of this community, too,” said Travolta, “and it’s more fun to have a movie to help contribute to a charity-raising situation. And it’s more fun for us because it brings a little bit of Hollywood to the community. With the Boys & Girls Club of America, in Marion County specifically, we get to refurbish their game room, maybe increase the security. We’ll do a lot of good things with that money.”

The Boys & Girls Club of Marion County is “ecstatic” with Travolta’s donation.
