Danson, 55, who played SAM MALONE in the sitcom for 12 years, went behind the bar and mingled with donors at a fundraiser for the MUSEUM OF NORTHERN ARIZONA.
The screen star's father, EDWARD B 'NED' DANSON, became the director of the museum in 1959 when Ted was 12, and the family lived in the homestead across the street from the museum.
Danson says, "It is really a little jewel. It really needs to be supported. It's all private and it really does need the community, which includes all of Arizona, to support it. That's my hope."09/11/2003 21:16
