…BECAUSE OF THE STRIKE”
BTL thanks the Artful Writer blog for this announcement:
WGA WRITERS THANK OUR COMMUNITY
FREE EVENT AT SHERMAN OAKS CASTLE PARK
FOR ANYONE OUT OF WORK BECAUSE OF THE STRIKE
As the WGA strike moves into a second month, we, a group of writers, want to recognize the members of our community who are out of work or otherwise impacted. While we support our union’s actions, we feel badly that the strike is taking a toll on so many people who are not writers. We know that many in the industry have been going through a tough time…and at this point we probably could all use a dose of levity.
To that end, if you are not a writer and are out of work because of the strike, we invite you and your kids to a free afternoon of mini-golf and arcade games at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park. We will provide pizza, ice cream and lots of fun.
The Details: WGA writers thank our community December 11, 2007 4pm-7pm Sherman Oaks Castle Park 4989 Sepulveda Blvd. Sherman Oaks, CA 91403 818-756-9459 http://www.laparks.org/shermanoaks_castlepk/
Unfortunately, we can only accommodate 100 people. Please RSVP to [email protected] or 323.908.3076.
Reservations will be taken on a first come first served basis. When RSVPing please leave your name, number in your party (maximum of 6 per reservation), phone number, and company for which you work/worked. We will reply to you with a confirmation of your RSVP. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. In case of rain, please call into the RSVP line to check if the event is being postponed.
At the event, we will be collecting toys as part of the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Spark of Love Toy Drive. Feel free to bring along a donation of a new unwrapped toy or sporting good, which will then go to a child in Los Angeles county who would otherwise go without a gift this holiday season.
