The Curtain Drops Again Until 2014

Indiana Cares Campaign and the Film Festival Committee wish thank everyone who attended the concluding night of the 10th Annual Indiana LGBT Film Festival. All in all, we were able to raise over $500 for the Pat Rawls Memorial scholarship, bringing us close to our $5000 goal.

We also want to extend a special thanks to Sal Rendino, one of the actors from A Perfect Wedding and our special celebrity guest. Sal made the trek from Yonkers, NY to Indiana, PA just to be with us for the evening. Sal provided a question and answer session following the night’s features.

Indiana Cares Campaign will present the 11th Annual Indiana LGBT Film Festival in October 2014. Stay tuned for more details in the coming year.
