4th Annual Meals for Monologues Post Game

by ranielle

Our 4th Annual Meals for Monologues event on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 was a rousing success! Actors from all over the Pacific Northwest — and beyond! — joined the efforts and the results were spectacular.

In just five hours, Casting Directors Lana Veenker and Eryn Goodman saw 125 actors perform monologues. That’s one actor every 2 1/2 minutes! Cast Iron Studios collected an outstanding 1,010 pounds of food for the Oregon Food Bank, and with the continuation of self-taped submissions upon proof of donation (introduced last year), an additional $437 was donated. That’s a total of 2,505 meals! That’s more than double last year’s number of meals! You guys are amazing!

What really helped put us over the top this year were donations from our generous acting community! Special thanks to Deneb Catalan, Jana Lee Hamblin, and Scott Rogers for their contribution.
