“UNSCRIPTED: Screen for a Cure” Fundraiser in Owensboro!
The Daviess County Public Library will play host to Verite Cinema’s special one night benefit Unscripted: Series One – Screen for a Cure to garner donations for Family Video’s national charity drive for The Lymphoma Research Foundation. The evening will be a recap of the wildly successful first season of local/regional independent films from Series One including They Said They Were Here To Help, The Red Box, Bumsicle and A Mind Beside Itself. There will be a free charity concert starting at 4 pm in the Library Courtyard with music by Jordan Bonner Fuller featuring Heather Rose, Gypsylifter, Mollie Garrigan and Pat Ballard with Johnny Keyz and James Michael Harris. This concert is sponsored by the online entertainment magazine Sugg Street Post. Then at 6 pm the doors to the screening room will open to begin showing the local/regional independent films.
All those who attend will have a chance to meet each filmmaker as well as discuss the films during the event’s unique live audio commentary experience. We will have a special appearance by Lee Goldberg from Hollywood, California via Skype during the BUMSICLE commentary.
The event is free to attend and donations will be collected by a Family Video representative that will be on site. There will be free drinks, popcorn, door prizes and a silent auction. All donations collected will be handled by Family Video to be given to The Lymphoma Research Foundation to help their cause. This event is sponsored by Owensboro Music Center, Sugg Street Post and Family Video. Get more event info here!
