To celebrate the upcoming release of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, The Walt Disney Company will be hosting a star-studded gala to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of America at Disneyland, Anaheim, CA on May 7th, 2011. Individual tickets for the premiere event are priced at $1,000 and are now available for sale at www.piratespremiere.com. Disney is donating 100% of the proceeds from the ticket sales directly to Boys & Girls Clubs of America, whose mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
