In 1999, Act One will celebrate its 10th year of mentoring and training a new generation of Christians for careers in mainstream Hollywood. Our little program has made a huge impact by drawing hundreds of committed believers into the front lines of the culture, and we have big dreams to expand a whole lot more in the coming years. In addition to training writers and executives, Act One wants to create bridge programs for directors, actors, critics and pastors. We wnat to build an artist's chapel, and operate a state of the art think tank for the Church on the arts, enterainment and storytelling.
It's going to take money and many new networks of established professionals in these areas to act as mentors and faculty. We invite you to please come on board and help us! And one way to do that is to buy a seat, or become a sponsor of our upcoming 10th Anniversary Kick-Off Gala celebration on October 11, 2008. Here is a message from Act One's Director of Advancement about the event.
Dear Friend of Act One:
Saturday, October 11, 6:30 pm, Act One will officially launch our 10th Anniversary year with a Black Tie Gala. The exciting event will include a cocktail party, dinner and Broadway style entertainment. It will be held at the historic and beautiful Main Concourse of Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles.
We see this event as an opportunity for the faculty, mentors, alumni and supporters of Act One to come together to enjoy each other and celebrate the great goods that have come to the Church and the world through this vital program. We hope it will be an occasion for friends to introduce the program to many new friends who could come on board and help Act One meet and expand in its next ten years. If you think Act One is a good thing, we really need you to step up now and show us by supporting this event in whatever way you can.
Please do mark your calendars now, and consider attending, or sponsoring seats at the Gala if you can't be there in person. We are also looking for silent auction items if you can help us out in that way.
We have just launched a section of our web site to take reservations to the Gala. It would help us out tremendously f you are planning on attending the Gala or hosting a table, if you could make your reservation sooner rather than later. (It would be a good idea in any case because we have 700 members of the Act One community, and probably only about 300 seats at the Gala!) Would you please consider reserving your ticket or table now? Making your reservation by July 9th will not only hold a seat for you at this momentous occasion, but will also enable the Act One Gala Planning Committee to better prepare for the celebration which will mark the kick-off of Act One’s 10th Anniversary.
