$1 of every ticket sold went to the Summer Visions Film Program at Templeton High School (run by Jim Crescenzo and Tanya Zambrano) helping keep at risk youth off the streets through the arts.
They have created a program where they hire mentors and professionals to work with the teens in all capacities to help prepare them fully for a Career in Theatre and Film and also to help them learn valuable life skills to take with them in the real world. Their philosophy is to keep “Raising the Bar”, and not to let the young people accept mediocrity. They have both lived and gone to school in the neighborhood and realize the importance of what makes up a community. They know it takes a village to raise a child and they are so grateful to this community.
