THE LONE RANGER world premiere on June 22 to benefit the American Indian College Fund

The world premiere of Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ The Lone Ranger will take place on Saturday, June 22, at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California. Thousands of visitors will cheer the cast as they walk down a giant red carpet on the Park’s iconic Hollywood Boulevard. Walt Disney Studios Chairman, Alan Horn, also announced today that the premiere will benefit the American Indian College Fund: “We’ve had a terrific collaboration with the Native American community throughout the production of Disney’s The Lone Ranger,” Mr. Horn said. “With the world premiere of this exciting film at hand, we are pleased to commemorate the occasion by supporting the American Indian College Fund.”

Tickets for the premiere event — priced at $1,000 each — have been donated by Disney to the American Indian College Fund, which will offer them for sale to the public; tickets will be available for purchase HERE starting today. Because Disney is also underwriting the entire cost of the premiere, 100% of the revenues received by the American Indian College Fund for the tickets will be used for scholarships and other support for Native American students.

As the Fund President, Cheryl Crazy Bull, explained,”[O]ur scholarships are an investment in a healthier, more prosperous future for tribal students and their families. We are poised to serve over 20,000 American Indian and Alaska Native students attending the tribal colleges across this country. Currently our scholarships serve less than 21% of those students so we appreciate any opportunity to bring resources into our scholarship program.”
