EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2014
I am going to pull an all-nighter watching movies at the BAM 24-Hour Movie Marathon!
On top of that, I have the ability to support a cause that is dear to my heart – Arts Education.
If you've ever experienced the transformative, joyous, life-changing power of art, then you know we'd be living in a much better world today if more people could have the same experience, and more often. It is even more important to have these experiences in one's formative years.
This is why I am proud to take part in BAM's endeavor to enrich the hearts and minds of so many New York kids.
BAM is an incredible arts organization (if you know me well, you know I'm there every week) and every dollar I raise will help give kids greater access to the amazing performances, movies, after-school programs, and workshops that BAM offers. Just $25 helps get one kid involved in Arts & Justice, a free after-school program in which high school students create original theater works about social justice issues.
I can honestly say that some of the most important experiences I've had in my life, I owe to BAM. This is where I was first introduced to the Maly Drama Theatre of St. Petersburg. Had I not seen their production of "Uncle Vanya" four years ago, my life would have been a mere shadow of what it is today.
So, let's help BAM give the gift of art to the children of New York.
For my part, I'm going to stay up all night and watch movies!
Seriously, I will be forever grateful!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
