Determined to keep our paid stipend program for young journalists well funded, we invite you to join the Board of Access Sacramento for a wonderfully entertaining evening – Thursday April 4 – at the beautiful Crest Theater main stage. Our talent scouts are prowling and working with our creative partner organizations to discover the best lineup of Sacramento talent you have ever seen. Funds raised will go to our Youth Correspondent program of “Neighborhood News” – check out their work at www.AccessLocal.tv.
Dennis Mangers will be our emcee and we shall honor Dr. Barbara O’Connor with our first annual “POV” Award for using her “power of voice to express a unique point of view”. Mark S. Allen of Good Day Sacramento will partner with Ron Cunningham of the Sacramento Ballet as judges – stay tuned for a feisty, female judge to be added shortly. Early event underwriters include The Sacramento Bee and Skip’s Music.
Bands, individual performers and local films will be showcased and winners in each category – Group, Individual, and Digital Media – will receive cash prizes. Performers will be announced week by week in this newsletter so stay tuned.
