Kempe Children's Foundation Alliance President Gail Johnson announces that George Lucas' new movie, "Star Wars--Attack of the Clones," will debut in Denver on May 12, with all proceeds benefitting Kempe. Mr. Lucas chose Kempe as the only nonprofit in Denver to receive the honor "because he's interested in organizations that help children," she said. The man behind Mrs. Johnson crashed the party.
