Parade costs covered privately

The Lakers and AEG just held a press conference confirming all expenses for tommorrow’s parade will be covered by the Lakers, AEG, FSN and a group of civic leaders.

Here’s a list of those fine people who stepped up to pay for tommorrow’s parade, so the City Council can go back to worrying about how to close the city’s budget shortfall.

Casey and Laura Wasserman, Margie and Jerry Perenchio, Cheryl and Haim Saban, Edyth and Eli Broad, Sharon and Joe Hernandez of Melissa’s Fruits and Vegetables, GAyle and Ed Roski adn the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.

That group combined to donate about $900,000 for the parade.
