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!
