Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy, reaches out and touches high-school students in North Carolina. No, not that way…
Turns out a Rockingham County High School English class noticed the film The Tragedy of Macbeth was produced by Hefner back in 1971. They were watching the film on an old television set, so students joked that Hefner could buy them a new TV.
The teacher wrote a letter to Hefner asking for a new TV. The letter signed by the students and sent to the Playboy Mansion and the Chicago headquarters. Two weeks later, a new 32-inch TV was on the way.
My favorite part is that Hefner’s aides asked for copies of the school newspaper with an article about the donation for his scrapbook. 🙂
