MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Actress Sharon Stone is scheduled to speak at a civic awards dinner in the northwestern Pennsylvania county where she grew up.
The Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/1oM5Hze ) reports Stone is the featured speaker at the Greater Meadville Area Day/Winslow Award Dinner at the Country Club of Meadville on Thursday.
The invitation-only dinner is sponsored by groups which promote economic growth in Crawford County, where Stone was raised.
The 56-year-old actress was born in Meadville, the county seat, and graduated from nearby Saegertown High School before she was named Miss Crawford County.
Stone quit school at nearby Edinboro University to become a fashion model, and later turned to acting.
Stone won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Academy Award as the booze- and drug-addled wife of a Las Vegas power broker in "Casino."
