Bullock to attend red carpet in NOLA

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Actress Sandra Bullock will walk the red carpet in New Orleans on Thursday for an evening premiere of her latest film, "The Blind Side." Bullock, who recently bought a home in New Orleans, is hosting the event with film studio Warner Bros. to raise money for Warren Easton High School, which was flooded by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Bullock already has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the school for scholarships, new band uniforms, auditorium renovations and a new health clinic. The movie, which opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, is based on a true story of a poor teenager taken in by a family and recruited by a major college to play football. It also stars country singer Tim McGraw, a Delhi, La., native.
