Simon Monjack Asks For Big Donations


simon-monjack-with-brittany-murphyIf you’re in Beverly Hills this Thursday, you could attend the launch of the Brittany Murphy Foundation. According to the site, The Brittany Murphy Foundation is dedicated to supporting arts education for children, cancer research and the USO.

Simon Monjack is hosting the party. One small catch. Attending this event is not cheap!

A source told US magazine that Monjack is suggesting $1,000 a head and $10,000 from corporations to attend.

Says a source, “Everyone thinks it’s very tacky that he is making it so much about money.”

Brittany’s mom Sharon Murphy writes on the site, “We’ve created this foundation in her honor to keep her dreams alive; to enrich children’s lives through art,  to support the USO and fund cancer research.  I, myself, am a cancer survivor and Brittany was always by my side, even if it meant putting her career on hold to be there for me.  We were very grateful for the care I received and always wanted to further  contribute to cancer research to help others.”

US Magazine doesn’t name the source but do you think the story is being a little too negative on Monjack? He has claimed he put up $1 million of his own money to the foundation. Share your thoughts!
