The Marvel star made a surprise appearance at a New York Daily News/Disney charity screening of the movie for young volunteers on Wednesday night in New York City.
“Buddy, you’re a real champion,” Evans told Archie Silverstein, who turns 13 this month and recently donated his bar mitzvah gift money to the charity CelebrateU, which organizes birthday parties for less fortunate kids in shelters. After giving him a superhero-themed cupcake, he added, “I heard what you did — I think that’s really heroic.”
In addition to CelebrateU, the screening honored GenerationOn, the youth services division of Points of Light, that inspires, equips and mobilizes kids to improve the world through volunteer services in their communities. Each young attendee was given a Captain America toy too.
“Knowing that the role, though demanding and though heavy with responsibility, you get that type of reaction and it’s all worth it,” Evans told the Daily News afterward.
