(S.D.)-Kevin Costner Donates Items To Benefit Auction In Lead

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 09/16/2013 10:14 AM
      DEADWOD, S.D. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - Actor Kevin Costner has donated items to a charity auction to benefit a Lakota interpreter at his Tatanka tourist attraction in South Dakota.
     Costner's childhood baseball and bat and some of his movie memorabilia including a baseball jacket from "Bull Durham" will be sold at the Saturday auction in Lead. Proceeds will help Phillip Red Bird Frame, who hopes to earn a college degree in sociology.
     The 47-year-old interpreter says
he's humbled by the donations of Costner and Chief David Bald Eagle, chief of the Minnicoujou Tribe who was born in a teepee in 1919 and appeared in the 1935 swashbuckling film "Captain Blood" as Errol Flynn's sword-wielding bodyguard.
     Costner filmed much of his Academy Award-winning movie "Dances with Wolves" in South Dakota.
