ORGANIZER: Brooklyn Academy of Music
EVENT: BAM 24-Hour Movie Marathon
EVENT DATE: Sep 05, 2014
Dear friends, colleagues, and forget-me-nots,
From 8pm on September 5 through 7:59pm on September 6, I will be participating in BAM24, a 24-hour movie-watching marathon/madness in support of BAM's art-based education for kids.
It's not about the money, but in this case IT IS ABOUT THE MONEY. With my pledge to watch movies (of all kinds, mostly of not my choosing: the good, bad, and quite possibly, the ugly) for 24-waking hours, I ask that you donate to a cause that directly benefits students through BAM Education's after-school programs in dance, theater, poetry, film criticism, and more.
For more information on BAM Education, please take a gander at: http://www.bam.org/about/education
Officially, and more succinctly: "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 hope you will join me for a great cause, if not in physical reality, then vicariously through your financial support. My 24 hours is your cause.
