Lake Baldwin To Aid Animals


Hollywood couple ALEC BALDWIN and KIM BASINGER are to be immortalised on the American map - they will each have a lake named after them.

The pair, who have been said to be in a marriage crisis, will be honoured after donating to the PERFORMING ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY (PAWS), which cares for abused and unwanted circus animals.

Baldwin won $250,000 (166,000) on the celebrity version of hit TV show WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE? after using a lifeline to phone his wife, and donated the cash to the animal charity.

PAWS are using the money to build two lakes at their sanctuary in California. Founder PAT DERBY says, "We're calling the elephant lake Lake Baldwin, and we're thinking of calling the bear lake Lake Basinger."
