Who donated $100 mil to Erie, PA?

Here is a "real-life" blind item. Someone has made an anonymous donation to the city of Erie, PA in the amount of $100 million. The city officials are sworn to secrecy and will not reveal if the donor is alive or dead. Who has ties to Erie, PA that has that much money? This would be a very rich, very generous person who cares about the city of Erie enough to give that big of a donation. Some famous people from Erie include:
  • Ann B. Davis (Alice from the Brady Bunch) - does she have that much money from Brady reruns? Is she dead or alive??
  • Billy Blanks (inventor of Tae Bo) - is Tae Bo still as successful now as it was in the late 90's? I know they keep coming out with new workouts.
  • Patrick Monahan (lead singer of Train) - I don't think Train had enough hits to make that much money.
  • Chris Vrenna (former drummer of Nine Inch Nails) - where have they been recently?
  • Eric Hicks (of the New York Jets) - those NFL guys do make millions!
There are more who I am not familiar with enough to comment on. Of course, the donor could have been just some random billionaire from the area, one of the various businessmen/scientists from the area who have more money than they know what to do with... someone who really thought the city could use some help. Regardless, it was very generous of them. Erie will be changed for the better. Hopefully more rich people will follow this mystery donor's lead and give back to the people!

Any guesses feel free to comment.

ha - Ann B. Davis! I would guess that it wasn't a celeb, because they all crave attention so much, that if they donated that much money, they would announce it to the world for the publicity.
