Elevation Award Gala

Join us at the Inaugural Elevation Award Gala Fundraiser!

We’re so proud of everything WIFMCO has accomplished in our first three years, and hope you feel the same way. We’ve made great strides to meet our mission of supporting and educating Colorado women in film and media. In addition to our monthly meetings, we’ve successfully launched special programs including a film finishing grant, screenwriting competition, and mentoring program, and hope to add a scholarship and a production grant in 2019. Those programs are expensive, so we hope you’ll join us in support of those programs at WIFMCO’s Inaugural Elevation Award Gala Fundraiser on February 26 at the Mercury Cafe.

The Elevation Award was created by WIFMCO to honor an inspiring woman in the film and media world whose work, both professionally and in support of others, reminds us all to bring our best to our own endeavors. The 2019 recipient of the Inaugural Elevation Award is Alison Arngrim. Yep, Nellie Oleson from Little House on the Prairie, the character you loved to hate, will be our Award recipient. Come meet her!

Alison is the New York Times best selling author of “Confessions of a Prairie Bitch: How I Survived Nellie Oleson and Learned to Love Being Hated,” a stand-up comedian, working actor, AIDS activist, and activist fighting child sexual abuse and exploitation. She’s elevated her life as a professional and by selflessly working to support others. She’s also charming and funny, so we can’t wait to hear her speak at the Gala.

The evening’s program will include live- and silent-auctions, a video presentation highlighting WIFMCO’s mission and accomplishments, a VIP book-signing, and the presentation of the Elevation Award to Alison, followed by her comments. We have some exciting auction items, so please come prepared to bid and support WIFMCO’s special programs. Ticket prices are affordable, with student, general admission, and VIP levels. VIP ticketholders will receive a signed copy of Alison’s book. We also have sponsorship levels for corporate sponsors, film and arts supporters, and philanthropists. Please contact [email protected] for sponsorship information.

We hope we’ll see you at the Elevation Award Gala Fundraiser!
