After three years of hard work, long days, and cinematic elbow grease, the moment has arrived!!! We are proud to announce that BACK ON BOARD: GREG LOUGANIS will have its WORLD PREMIERE next month at the AFI DOCS Film Festival (formerly Silverdocs where Sync or Swim screened in 2008). Also in June our film will screen at the world famous Castro Theater at the Frameline LGBT Film Festival in San Francisco. We could not be more excited to share our film with the world!

See you at the movies,
Will Sweeney & Cheryl Furjanic

A generous donor has agreed to a "matching program" to help us get our film to the finish line. We are in the home stretch with post-production (online, color correct, music, sound mix) and we are still raising the funds we need to finish the film! This donor will MATCH every dollar that is pledged up to $25,000! That means you can double the impact of your tax-deductible contribution towards the film. With your help, we can make it through this last phase of important work on the film!  We'd be honored if you could kick in a few dollars (or a hundred, or a thousand) towards this goal!

Fwd: Twitter Party- 2nd Annual Summer Dreamers Academy Night Out 5/29 3-5PM

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Howze, Merecedes J 

Greetings All: 

In the hours leading up to the 2nd Annual Summer Dreamers Academy Night Out, Pittsburgh Public Schools (@PPSNews) and the Summer Dreamers Academy will be hosting an exclusive Twitter party.  On Thursday, May 29th, from 3-5PM, MGR Youth Empowerment (@MGRYouth) is partnering with the summer program to make this the BIGGEST Twitter party ever!  Using hashtags #SummerLearning14 and #PghSummerRocks, tweets will be filled with fun summer learning facts, summer program opportunities, giveaways and much more. 

The goal for this Twitter party is to promote positive awareness around summer learning in Pittsburgh.  Attendees are encouraged to tweet about their past summer learning experiences.  The party is also a virtual message board for all key stakeholders (parents, campers, community leaders, funders, and summer program leaders) to get on one accord about the importance of summer learning in the Greater Pittsburgh area.  Lastly, this Twitter party is an opportunity for summer programs, other than the Summer Dreamers Academy, to be heard on a larger platform.

To all of you new Twitter 'peeps', I have attached a Twitter guide with helpful tips on how to successfully be a part of the party.   Also, attached is the official invite.  Please feel free to share this email with others and post the invite on your social media pages.

If you plan to participate, please send me your Twitter handle by Tuesday, May 27th and I'll share everyone's Twitter information with the larger group.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the information below. 

Thank you,

Merecedes J. Howze
