Dear KATH members,
I’ve been recently invited to serve as a consultant for the KY Commission on Women’s new movie on the history of Kentucky women. The producer, Michael Breeding, said he wanted to contribute to a fundraising effort if we could encourage volunteers to come and sit in as an audience for Governor Collins as she is being filmed. If you are willing to volunteer as an audience member, will you target KATH for his philanthropic effort?
He is looking for some volunteers for Dec 17th to attend the filming as “extras” in the auditorium listening to Governor Collins? His call for volunteers – and the signup sheet – is below.

NOTICE FOR VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR FILMING:
On Wednesday, December 17th, you are invited to participate in an interesting film event while helping support your favorite charity. Producer/director Michael Breeding will be filming segments for a new documentary about Kentucky women entitled “Dreamers & Doers: VOICES of Kentucky Women” on NKU’s campus from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at NKU. The film has been commissioned by The Kentucky Commission on Women and will feature stories about the lives of more than forty Kentucky women whose contributions to public service and civic life have shaped the Commonwealth. Former Governor Martha Layne Collins will serve as one of the on-camera narrators for this documentary.
Governor Collins will be filming segments of her narration on the December 17th in the NKU Digitorium. We need from 60 – 80 people to serve as her “mock audience.” At this point, we have a commitment from CASA for Kids of Kenton and Campbell County Inc. to help us with twenty-five volunteers. Yet, we need at least fifty more men, women and students. For every volunteer to participate in this filming, Michael Breeding MEDIA will donate $20 to a chosen charity. We are hoping one or more charities will take this project on as a fundraiser.
If you or your nonprofit are able to participate on December 17th between 11:00 and 1:00 at the filming, please fill out the reply form located at http://www.michaelbreedingmedia.com/mbmedia/film-shoot-at-nku/.
You will receive a follow up notification with specific directions to the NKU Digitorium along with parking instructions, a timeline for the filming, attire to wear, etc.
The project is an independent production from Michael Breeding MEDIA and is commissioned by the Kentucky Commission on Women, an office of the Governor. Major funding for “Dreamers & Doers: VOICES of Kentucky Women” is provided by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky, Inc., The Gheens Foundation and Madeline & Jerry Abramson.
