Solano College Theatre announced the establishment of the Tom Hanks/Rita Wilson Endowment Fund. The endowment is a living legacy from Tom Hanks and honors the students as well as his long friendship with SCT Artistic Director George Maguire. It will provide scholarships to Theatre Arts students at Solano Community College.
Mr. Maguire met Hanks at Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival in Cleveland, OH, 32 years ago and the two have maintained a close friendship ever since.
Tom Hanks is also planning a spring appearance at Solano College Theatre. Details of the appearance are to be announced.
