Fonzie Coming to Richmond Tomorrow

Heyyy, the Fonz is in town tomorrow.

Actor, director and producer Henry Winkler, best known for his portrayal of Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli on “Happy Days” and Marlee Matlin, the only deaf actress to ever win Best Actress Oscar, are coming to the Virginia Home (1101 Hampton Street) on Thursday, April 9 from 3 to 4 p.m.

There, residents will present them with donations to their respective causes — for Winkler, the Motion Picture and Television Fund, and for Matlin, KODAWest, which serves hearing children with parents who are deaf.

The actors will be guest speakers for “Stories of Courage and Grace,” a fundraising event to be held at the Jefferson Hotel later that evening to benefit the Virginia Home.

If someone from Style ends up at the event, we’ll be sure to let you know if anything crazy happens. Or if the “Jumping the Shark” episode is analyzed in detail.
