Our 5th Annual Meals for Monologues event on Wednesday, December 2, 2015 was once again a rousing success, bringing our industry together to give back to those in need. We’re so proud of our community!
We had an amazing turnout, and approximately 160 actors were seen by Casting Directors Lana Veenker and Eryn Goodman. Cast Iron Studios collected 780 pounds of food for the Oregon Food Bank. Combined with the $475 in donations made online with self-tape submissions for those unable to attend in person, that makes a whopping 2,075 meals. Yet another impressive haul!
This year also saw our first efforts collecting donations for Toys for Tots. Two overflowing boxes were filled with toys and stuffed animals and another $50 was donated online. That’s a lot of happy children on Christmas morning!
Thank you to everyone who came out this year!
