Our Indiegogo Crowd Funding campaign to raise money on our Forgotten Hollywood Documentary Project will officially end on May 18th at Westminster Lanes. The bowling facility has graciously donated their location to allow folks to come in to bowl for prizes and cash. Here are the details:
The Forgotten Hollywood Bowling Bash begins with signups at noon. Three games of no-tap bowling begins at 1p, with prizes for Best Bowlers (m/f); Worst Bowlers (m/f); and a series of incentive games, including a couple of Strike Balls (for prizes/cash); Brackets (for cash); and 50/50 Drawings (for cash). All for just $20. In addition, lanes will be set aside for your children (18 and under) for just $10, so they may be able to bowl with their friends. So far, we have some really delicious prizes, such as a box-set of complete episodes of every I Love Lucy ever broadcast!
All participants who donate at least $20 will be able to attend an evening at the 10 Pin Comedy Show in the Westminster Lanes lounge at 8p. Even if you don’t bowl, the donation will guarantee entrance to the Comedy extravaganza. The bowling event is family-friendly; the Comedy program is for the adults. What a great way to enjoy and afternoon and night of fun.
All proceeds will benefit our Development of the Forgotten Hollywood Documentary Pilot. The topic of this feature will be Lionel Barrymore and his influence on theatre-going audiences to view folks with disabilities. His decision to continue working while in a wheelchair benefitted charities, including The National Arthritis Foundation, The March of Dimes, and today’s Rotary Club’s PolioPlus Program. It’s a wonderful almost-forgotten tales that needs to be shared with today’s generation of film audiences. Monies raised will be used to:
- Hire a research archivist to compile footage & photos; and secure licensing
- Hire a consultant / casting director to book actors and behind-the-scenes folks from Hollywood’s Golden Age; plus cinematic historians for original interviews
- Set up a production shoot to tape these candid moments
