Tempus Networking Group hosts fundraiser for One of Us Films
Royal Oak, Michigan - The Tempus Networking Group will host a happy hour fundraiser to benefit One of Us Films on Tuesday, Feb. 20 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at D'Amato's restaurant located at 222 S. Sherman St. in downtown Royal Oak.
Those in attendance will be asked to provide a $10 donation to benefit One of Us Films' movie project The StretchMarks starring local singer/songwriter Jill Jack.
The Stretch Marks is a feature film project in development by One of Us Films. While the film is about soccer moms who form a rock band, it is also about two best friends and what happens when one of them battles breast cancer.
"We're very excited to have Tempus Networking take an interest in our next project," said Carrie Lezotte director of One of Us Films, a nonprofit film production company whose mission is to create films that increase awareness for social issues as a means for affecting positive change.
"We are very excited to begin production on The Stretch Marks. Several talented and influential women from the community have really pulled together in support of this project. Everyone seems really inspired by the script and just feels that this is a story that needs to be told," said Lezotte.
The Stretch Marks will feature acoustic folk singer/songwriter Jill Jack who has agreed to star in the film as well as contribute original music. Jack has been the recipient of 18 Detroit Music Awards over the course of her career.
"I am really committed to seeing this project through to fruition," said Jack. "I just love this story and I love that music is such an integral part of this film. I am truly honored that I've been asked me to be a part of this," she added.
Lisa Marie of WNZK 690 AM's Metrochick Radio will welcome Tempus Networking Group guests to partake in complimentary hors d'oeuvres and happy-hour drink specials.
One of Us Films' Producer/Director LeZotte is scheduled to attend.
One of Us Films is a non-profit film and video production company. Projects focus on raising awareness of social issues.
