Los Angeles: Actor Chris Pratt has donated USD 500,000 to teen center built in honour of his father Dan Pratt.
The "Passengers" star lost his father to multiple sclerosis while filming "Jurassic World," but Pratt is keeping his spirit alive by helping break ground on the Dan Pratt Memorial Teen Center.
The 37-year-old actor attended the Groundbreaking Celebration to help with the initial dig, talk about his memories with the Boys & Girls Club and give a check for USD 500,000.
"I have never been more grateful in my life. My hometown of Lake Stevens, Washington just broke ground on the Dan Pratt Memorial Teen Center. Thank you so much to the folks at Omaze for all your hard work, and to all the people around the world who donated through the campaign.
"We couldn't have done it without you. I just handed the teen center committee a USD 500,000.00 check like on publishers clearing house. What a trip! That's half a million dollars! We broke ground! It's gonna be fabulous too! The plans are amazing," Pratt wrote on Facebook.
