The short, stocky, bald-headed character known as George Costanza on the popular 90s sitcom “Seinfeld” is coming to Winnipeg.

Actor Jason Alexander will headline this year’s Negev Gala honouring the Arab Jewish Dialogue at the Centennial Concert Hall. The gala event is Tuesday, June 4 and is being put on by the Jewish National Fund of Canada Manitoba/Saskatchewan Region (JNF).

“We are thrilled to feature the triple-threat talents of Jason Alexander at this year’s Negev Gala,” said regional president Karla Berbrayer. “We hope by bringing in such a popular entertainer, more people will be aware of and interested in the amazing work the JNF is doing in Israel.”

The annual fundraiser supports environmental research and development projects that benefit all citizens and visitors in the State of Israel.

Alexander is the spokesman and representative for One Voice, a grassroots organization of Israelis and Palestinians committed to a peaceful, two-state solution in the Middle East.
