Atlanta's 7th Annual "Lend Me an Ear" Fundraiser

The Atlanta Tri-Union Radio Players came together for our 7th Annual "Lend Me an Ear" on Monday, October 25 to help out the Atlanta Community Food Bank. We packed the house at the New American Shakespeare Tavern while having over 30 AEA, AFTRA, and SAG members entertain our audience with great elan and fervor. Raising nearly $3000, our best take ever, it translated into almost $25,000 in grocery buying power for the ACFB!

.i The radio show recreations included the perennial favorite Fibber McGee and Molly, the groundbreaking New World A-Coming, an NYC radio program from WWII that dealt with the Black experience in America, the children's program Let's Pretend, and a segment with Abbott and Costello, among others.

So here's a BIG BRAVO to everybody who was involved. We were pleased to see so many new and diverse faces in the cast this year and we were honored to have join us fellow Georgian Joel Godard, the long-time announcer from Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

Until next year then, "Happy Imagining" everybody!
