NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - A hometown celebration for Michael Vick
in Virginia has been postponed.

An organizer of the "Michael Vick Community Celebration" scheduled for Saturday says the job-hunting former NFL quarterback informed him Monday he could not appear at the Newport News event because of a conflict.

President Andrew Shannon of the Peninsula chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference says Vick told him he had a commitment with the Humane Society of the United States. He did not know if the event was open to the public.

A spokesman for the Humane Society did not immediately return a
telephone message left by The Associated Press.

Vick has been conditionally reinstated in the NFL after completing a 23-month federal sentence for running a dogfighting ring.
