Ellen Fan Wins Hearts at Humane Society


Chris Bernheisel has three jobs and he received a $1,000 bonus for Christmas so he decided to share the wealth.

What he did was inspired in part by his love for animals and in part by Ellen Degeneres.

Chris handed his $1,000 bonus check over to the Nebraska Humane Society on Tuesday.

Animal shelters are close to Ellen's heart and Chris is a big fan. In fact he won a bidding contest at the Field Club and won tickets to see Ellen tape a show next month on Valentine's Day!

Chris said, “She's my valentine. I can't just ask more for that you know to be there. I can't wait to dance. That's going to be incredible. I've been working on my moves, so that's really cool."

Bernheisel wanted to personally donate the money to Ellen when he is there next month but the people there suggested he keep it local instead.

By the way, his winning bid that got him the tickets to Ellen was a benefit to another local group - Partnership 4 Kids.
