Red Carpet Film Premier
Monday, October 15th 5:30 p.m.
We are so thankful to our members, community partners and school district. In just a few days - we will be hosting Joey Travolta's Summer Film Camp Red Carpet Premiere Event. We cordially invite you to this FREE event to support our filmmakers!
Last June, the California Department of Rehabilitation funded a Summer Camp in which Joey Travolta taught 55 young adults with special needs how to make a movie from beginning to end.
To celebrate the students success Stockton Unified, Lodi Unified, Solano County, and San Joaquin County of Education decided to host a Red Carpet Premiere Event. Junior League of San Joaquin County volunteered to coordinate and contribute to the event. Mayor Michael Tubbs of Stockton donated the Historic Bob Hope Theatre for the premiere.
Through generous donations, Junior League of San Joaquin County held a dress boutique where the girls came to try on and choose their gowns. Many local business's including University Plaza Waterfront Hotel, Aurora Limo and Star Class Limousines LLC, Tim Ulmerphoto Ulmer and Jahaziel photography, Formal Connection, Gian's Deli, and the wonderful Scott at Bob Hope Theatre have been so generous with their time and treasures to make this premier an extraordinary event.
The evening for our film makers will start by arriving at a "salon" at the Waterfront Hotel where a team of volunteers will provide hair and makeup and a jewelry "store" set up for the girls. The students will be picked up in Limos from The Waterfront Hotel, along with Joey Travolta, his partners, and guests of the school districts. They will be dropped off in front of The Bob Hope Theatre to walk the Red Carpet and wave to the Paparazzi in style!
They will enjoy their film, including filmed interviews of their experiences about the camp; followed by a certificate from Joey, and of course, a swag bag!
This will be a night for the young adults and their families to remember for a lifetime. We are so honored to be a part of this special event. We appreciate all of the support of the school districts, members and friends of Junior League of San Joaquin County with special thanks to Toria Leanne Dahl-Nelson, Heidi Schipper, Daisy Plovnick, Suzanne Webb, and our community partners.
THANK YOU to everyone that has helped, and THANK YOU to everyone volunteering the day of the event.
