One year later, almost to the day, in partnership with Assistance League Long Beach (ALLB) a virtual fundraising event was held of A Pebble in the Pond. The live, but still virtual event was the perfect way to allow people the opportunity to see our film (since the covid pandemic had removed most options including film festivals) while also raising awareness and money for ALLB! The event included a preshow countdown, prepared remarks from ALLB members and both Paul Howard, the film’s Director and its star, Ann Benson making short speeches. After the film was screened it was immediately followed by a live Q&A including cast and crew and Long Beach Assistance League participants.

In addition to creating awareness and entertaining those who participated, the event raised over thirteen thousand dollars and was deemed a huge success by Assistance League of Long Beach!


On Saturday, November 9th, 2019 a private screening of A Pebble in the Pond was held for the team that helped make the documentary feature film a reality. We were joined by individuals from all over the world including the editor, who is based in the UK, and some of our interviewees who appear in the film and are based throughout California, Michigan and Nevada. In addition to cast and crew, we were joined by representatives from the Long Beach, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles chapters of the Assistance League. After a brief introduction by the film’s Director, Paul Howard, A Pebble in the Pond was screened on the big screen at Los Feliz Theatre. The special screening was immediately followed by a reception at the Atrium. Which included themed drinks and appetizers. The screening was the first time many who had worked on the film had an opportunity to see what had been created.

Beyond being an inspiring and celebratory event, it was also one of ripples created…. One of our audience members, who had never heard of the Assistance League or Operation School Bell, signed up for her local Assistance League chapter the very NEXT DAY because she was so inspired by our film and the work being done at the Assistance League! Creating ripples, indeed!
