Remember Slater from Saved by the Bell? He was Bayside High’s star athlete. These days, Mario Lopez, who played the character on the hit NBC TV show during the early ’90′s, is using his talents, among other things, to help the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
Here’s the word on the TV star’s appearance in Rhode Island on Thursday at the Pearl Restaurant at 393 Charles Street in Providence, from 8 pm to 10 pm., from the Food Bank:
The host of the nationally syndicated show EXTRA will make a two-hour visit to the Pearl Restaurant at 393 Charles Street in Providence, from 8 pm to 10 pm. Tickets to the meet and greet are on sale for $20 at the Pearl. Five dollars from every ticket sold will be donated to the Food Bank. Tickets are limited so purchase yours today by calling the Pearl at 401-331-3000.
The Rhode Island Community Food Bank “provides food to people in need and promotes long-term solutions to the problem of hunger,” according to its web site. “Since 1982, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank has solicited, stored and distributed surplus food and grocery products to qualified member agency programs that serve Rhode Island’s hungry. Millions of pounds of donated food and nonfood household products are distributed to the community through our network of more than 250 member agency food programs across Rhode Island.”
