The411 with Sherlene Shanklin:  Tonight, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are among the celebrities expected to attend London's Victoria & Albert Museum. The charity gala is being held in honor of Louisville native Muhammad Ali.  The Sports for Peace gala is hoping to raise money for the Muhammad Ali Center educational programs which is located in Louisville and for research into Parkinson's disease.  The 70 year old former heavyweight champion is expected to be in attendance.  Tickets for this event start at $3,900.  We know the "Greatest" is in London because he attended the Beyond Sport award ceremony last night in London.   
Ali won gold at the 1960 Rome Olympics when he was known as Cassius Clay.
Olympic officials are being very secretive in regards to Ali's possible involvement in the Olympics opening ceremony.  
Are you going to London Olympics?  I'm starting to see a lot of facebook messages and tweets from residents from Kentucky and Indiana enroute to London right now.  If you want to share your photos with WHAS11 viewers send them to me at The411@whas11.com.
