Martin Sheen appearing at sold-out benefit dinner for Dawn Farm
Mark Bugnaski | The Kalamazoo Gazette
The event has sold out its 80 seats, each costing $250 to support Dawn Farm's programs. Roadhouse Chef Alex Young has created a special menu for the meal reflecting Sheen's Spanish and Irish heritage, Dawn Farm President James Balmer said in an email.
Billed as an "Intimate Evening with Martin Sheen," the event will give attendees the chance to hear Sheen speak and ask him questions.
Although probably best known for playing President Josiah Bartlett on "The West Wing," Sheen has also enjoyed a long and distinguished career in movies, including "Apocalypse Now," "Gettysburg" and "Catch Me If You Can." A recovering alcoholic, Sheen is active in recovery-related causes.
