In an effort to educate dog owners and bring about canine lymphoma awareness to Australia, CLEAR (Canine Lymphoma Education Awareness and Research) has joined forces with Australia’s foremost canine cancer awareness advocate, Caninecancer.org.au.
Our Risqué Agility Drag Race was a huge success, raising nearly $15,000! I want to thank everyone involved, and especially Terri Brink, Stephen Carazo and Kim Clark for everything they did to help raise money and awareness.
We are still moving at a fast pace to get the documentary finished on time. If you’ve been following our saga, you know that we have finished what is called the “paper cut” and are now on the “string out”. We are putting the movie together and it is exciting.
I want to welcome a new member to our film team, the awesome and talented Mimi Freedman, as our writer. Mimi is a documentary filmmaker and reality TV producer who has written, produced and directed more than fifty films and nonfiction television programs, including the Emmy-nominated Turner Classic Movies documentary Brando. She is currently a senior story producer on ABC’s long-running favorites, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
It has been announced quietly, but our 2nd Annual Fundraising Gala will be November 1, 2014, at 5:30 at the beautiful Vertigo Event Venue in Glendale. This year’s theme, CLEAR the Premiere! Your ticket includes your opportunity to see the premiere of My Friend: Changing the Journey, along with a red carpet reception party with beer, wine, special photo ops with cast and crew, movie concessions, music by Mary Carves the Chicken, vegetarian delights, silent auction and more. For more information please read our blog.
When I decided to start CLEAR, I honestly had no idea where I or CLEAR was going, but now with the documentary on the horizon and the buzz it is generating, I think we have started our journey off on the right foot!
Thank you everyone for your continued support! Because of you, we are who we are and proud of it.
