The Real World’s Greg Halstead is set to attend a benefit in Knoxville, TN later this month. Halstead, the first housemate ever to be chosen by viewers, will be at the Knoxville Center Mall on Saturday, May 31 for a meet-and-greet benefitting the Damon and Stella Foundation.
The Damon and Stella Foundation For Mental Health was founded in 2006 by survivors of suicide, and is an alliance of artists and health care professionals dedicated to expanding cultural awareness of mental disease. The charity strives to raise awareness of the issue through public service announcements, and has had three such PSAs made with country singer Randy Travis.
In exchange for a $10-15 charitable donation, fans will have the opportunity to get autographs and have a picture taken with the model/aspiring comedian. Halstead’s appearance, from 1-3 next Saturday, will help raise funds to make and air more PSA’s. He is quoted as saying in a press release, “I like doing charity work and any time that I can use my celebrity status to bring attention to a wonderful charity like the Damon and Stella Foundation, I like that even better.”
