The Baltimore Vegan Meetup Group Message Board › Help with Film Project
Lutherville Timonium, MD
Hi Meetup Member,
Hope all is well. The Earthsave nonprofit is working to help set up a special Baltimore preview showing of the great new film "Forks Over Knives", which is being produced by China Study director Dr. T. Colin Campbell in collaboration with Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, author of Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease. They are the two people perhaps most responsible for President Clinton's recent decision to go to a vegan diet.
We would like to make the event a fundraiser for the Stadium School here in Baltimore, the first school in our nation to have a vegetarian school lunch program. The event will also feature a discussion panel at the film's conclusion. The panel will most likely include Dr. Campbell's close colleague Antonia Demas, PhD, who spearheaded the wonderful food education program at the Stadium School, Farm Sanctuary Director Gene Bauer, and director of John Hopkins' Bloomberg School of Public Health, and perhaps another such as Dr. Neal Barnard of Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine.
We're considering several locations for a December 11th showing and may go with the Charles Theater, but it's a bit pricey, so we're considering other locations. We could choose the Friends Meeting House on Charles Street, but we would have to be invited by a member. Can anyone help us with that?
We're hoping to find a location for the film showing/fund raiser that's conveniently located and easy to find, with good parking, and seating for 150-200. And of course the lower the cost the better, so that we can raise some much needed funding for the school.
Please get back to me with any suggestions.
Peace, Don Robertson
