Brad Pitt, brother donate $600k to Missouri university

ANI - May 20, 2009

Brad Pitt and his younger brother Doug have together made a contribution of 600,000 dollars to a university in Missouri to help its sporting arena land an eco-friendly title. 

The Hollywood heartthrob and his sibling donated the amount to Drury University in their native Springfield to lend a helping hand to the institution's O'Reilly Family Event Center get a Gold Leadership in Environmental Energy and Design (LEED) certification. 

According to, the arena, now the first one to boast of the title, has "low-flow water fixtures, a dedicated recycling area and a solar-reflective roof and pavement materials”, reports ‘Contactmusic’. 

And in a bid to recognise the generous efforts of the brothers, school officials have decided to rename the court of the arena after their father. It is now to be called as the William A. Pitt Court.
