Women in Film Dallas PSA "Gilda’s Club: A Special Place" Wins Gracie Allen Award!
WIFD Founder, Betty Buckley, and WIFD PSA Chair, June Owens, and director, Linda Stogner Attend a black-tie Gala in the Grand Ballroom of the New York Hilton Hotel June 21, 2004.
American Women in Radio and Television (AWRT) selected the Women in Film Dallas produced PSA benefiting Gilda’s Club as one of this year’s prestigious Gracie Allen Award® winners.
The Gracie Allen Awards® recognize exemplary programming created for women, by women and about women in all facets of electronic media. “Year after year we continue to experience the profound impact that programming for, by and about women has on our society. Thank goodness there exists an event to recognize the great work of women in our industry,” said AWRT Executive Director Maria Efantis Brennan.
Gilda's Club Worldwide was selected as the group's choice to raise public awareness for help available for women suffering from cancer, in remembrance of Gilda Radner, the actress who died of ovarian cancer. The goal of this PSA is to reach those people who can benefit in knowing about Gilda's Club, and relay Gilda's wish: that no one should have to face cancer alone.
Highlights include actress Meryl Streep, who graciously donated her time to do the background voice over while she was promoting her latest film, Adaptation. In addition, a stellar cast and crew of 60 people from Dallas donated their time, along with some members of Gilda's Club, several children referred by Children's Medical Center, and Suzanne Ahn, respected physician and lung cancer activist. The professional women and men of Dallas’ Women in Film organization donate their time and talents to this incredible program.
Women in Film Dallas and all the members of the PSA committee would like to extend a special thanks to all the people and companies involved in this production to make a difference in the lives of others.
