Rihanna and Jim Parsons bring red carpet premiere of "Home" to Plano on March 17

Cheryl "Action" Jackson is the angel behind Minnie’s Food Pantry, a family-run nonprofit that has fed 4 million meals to the Plano community. On March 13, Rihanna, Steve Martin and Jim Parsons appeared on “Good Morning America” and informed her that she would get a red carpet premiere of their new animated movie “Home” in her hometown of Plano, Texas. Not surprisingly, Jackson screamed, cried and fanned her face at the news she won the "'GMA' Brings 'Home' to Your Hometown" contest. You can click here to see the whole hilarious ugly cry. LOL. “I just want to say that we are so amazed by the work that you've been doing in your community," Rihanna said. "We are inspired and we're so proud of you." Jackson started the food pantry in Plano in 2008. She named the pantry after her mother, Minnie, and, in the early days, when she donated her own food, had the mission to just serve as many people as she could. “If you can’t feed a hundred people, feed just one,” Jackson said.

DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox in partnership with Good Morning America invite the public to attend the red carpet event on Tuesday, March 17 at the Cinemark West Plano. The red carpet will open at 4pm and the event will begin at 5pm. While some tickets will be given away, the public at large will primarily be there to cheer on the stars as they walk the red carpet into the theater. It may be the closest you ever get to Rihanna...
