PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - Fall 2017
Dear Members and Friends,
Well, it happened! We made it through the summer - and now we have our gorgeous weather! The October light is especially nice in our 'hood!
Lots going on right now - more and more films are being shot here - Kip Serafin , along with Sean Hoessli and Lindie Kuzmich, producers, shot another feature length film here in the Palm Springs area - and is not only traveling the world in festivals, is screening right here for all of us! Check out PALM SWINGS. Many of our locals participated in the film - this is what we want!
Much thanks goes to many of our community members who are really working to bring more production here - our Riverside County Film Commissioners, The Agua Caliente, Palm Springs Tourism, Palm Springs Film Alliance, Palm Springs Hospitality Association, PSWIFT and the CVB!
This month we celebrate our wonderful Readers for BookPALS - now in its TENTH year! Tere Britton does an amazing job each year wrangling over 50 readers, collaborating with the schools to get the readers in for the students - and making sure all have a good time - and oh, yes, providing over 2500 books for the students! This month we will honor these readers at a special luncheon at the Acqua California Bistro at the River. Much thanks goes to Tere, her supporters and Barbara and Jerry Keller. If you can join us - great! - If you can DONATE either cash or Books - that is fantastic too! And we thank you!
November 6th is our 9th Annual Broken Glass Awards at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage. This year we are - again - honoring AMAZING women from our industry: Lucie Arnaz, Stefanie Powers, Jane Austin (LA SAG-AFTRA President), Kellee McQuinn and the one and only Nelda Linsk! Tickets are still available, but going fast, so we hope you can make it!
Thanks sincerely for all your support and participation in our events! Your support helps us fund BookPALS and provides Scholarship monies to local Programs and Academies that support education in the Production and Digital Media Arts - and we are truly grateful!
See you soon!
