A charity found its good-luck charms in Jessica Alba and Dane Cook, who attended a screening of their new comedy, "Good Luck Chuck," at a Knoxville theater.

Fans paid $75 to see the actors and attend the screening, which raised $260,000 for Variety of Eastern Tennessee, a charity benefiting children with disabilities.

Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam proclaimed "Jessica Alba and Dane Cook Day" on Tuesday, and Regal Entertainment Group CEO Mike Campbell unveiled commemorative tiles to be placed at the Walk of Fame at Regal's Pinnacle 18 theater.

"I've never had a proclamation except, `You're fired,'" Cook, 35, told the crowd of about 1,000.

"Good Luck Chuck" opened in theaters Friday. Alba, 26, plays Cam, a clumsy penguin-keeper who captures Cook's heart.

Knoxville-based Regal Entertainment Group has hosted several screenings to benefit Variety, including a showing of "Talladega Nights" with Will Ferrell and "The Dukes of Hazzard" with Jessica Simpson, Seann William Scott and Knoxville native Johnny Knoxville.
