July 11th BBQ Mixer Now A Celebration in Memory of Larry Goldsmith

July 11th BBQ Mixer Now A Celebration in Memory of Larry Goldsmith

Come Remember Our Colleague With a Party! Bring your Stories! Wear Hawaiian Shirts! Enjoy BBQ and Music! Celebrate a Life!

Upon hearing of the sudden passing of PVN and MCAI member Larry Goldsmith, who died early Monday morning July 2nd, the two organizations were ready to cancel the July 11th event. However Larry’s wife, Olivia, suggested it would be more appropriate to use the occasion to celebrate our friend’s life.

So it’s still a party. You might say we’re re-purposing it. We’ll still be cooking up fresh burgers, dogs, etc. on the grill but we’ll hold the Swap Meet on a later date. Rick Sherman, of Sherman Sound Suite, will provide live music so expect to have fun!

Everyone who knew Larry Goldsmith would agree his sense of humor and good nature—and his dedication to Aloha Shirts—made him memorable. So, we’re asking everyone to wear a Hawaiian shirt and bring your best Larry Goldsmith story to share.

This will be a fun, casual gathering of media professionals and as always, a great opportunity to make new business connections and connect with old friends. Whether you knew Larry or not, come and enjoy our celebration of friendship with a man who will be deeply missed.

Larry Goldmith, the owner of Starlight Video, based at the South Coast Media Center, has been a well-known figure in the OC Media Community for well over 25 years. A videographer, producer and editor, Larry was an important part of many of OC’s professional media associations, particularly PVN and MCAI. As the manager of the OC SoundStage Larry made it possible for our organizations to use the studio for meetings and functions—including the one on July 11th! So, it’s the perfect location for a gathering in his honor!

All proceeds from this event will go to Larry’s family to help with expenses. So please pre-pay and Register on line

The event is $15 at the door
Members of MCAI and PVN are technically FREE But please register anyway so we know how much food to buy! And if you choose to donate remember the money will go to Larry’s family.

    Thanks to those of you who put the time and effort into making this event a fitting tribute to Larry. The video, photos, Rick Sherman's time and talents, the testimonials, both formal and informal, all reminded us of who he was, both as an industry professional and as a husband, father and grandpa. Thank you all!

    This event was a wonderful celebration in honor of our good friend Larry. He has left a mark on the lives of many people and tonight the media community came out to honor and pay their respects to this "one of kind" individual. Nice job PVN and MCA-I.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
