Suspended NBC News anchor Brian Williams attended a fundraiser and donated $50,000 in a bid to keep his Catholic high school in New Jersey from closing.

Mater Dei Prep announced in February it will close in June because of financial problems unless it can raise $1 million.

Williams and his wife attended Saturday night's Save the Seraphs Gala in Atlantic Highlands.

The Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1B67ula ) reports the event sold out, with 464 people paying $125 apiece for tickets. It raised $95,000, which brought the fundraising campaign's total to $962,000.

Williams was a 1977 graduate of the school.

NBC in February suspended Williams without pay for six months for misleading the public about his experiences covering the Iraq War.
