“Ours to Give” Premiere
’Twas a beautiful
Sunday pre-Thanksgiving celebration – and “thankful” we were. “Ours
to Give – the Long Legacy of an American Family” premiered to an
estimated audience of 275 in the J. C. Nichols Auditorium at Liberty
Memorial, Sunday, November 18, 2007. Culminating efforts by
Director Rich Luckin, Screenwriter Peter Hansen along with Executive
Producer Bonnie Hansen, produced a wonderful documentary which left many
in attendance with new knowledge and a desire to learn more.
Out of state guests included the Hon. Mayor and Mrs. Dennis Weber, City of Longview, Washington, featured voice actors, Johanna and Michael Rowan, Lakewood, Colorado, and Director Rich Luckin, Golden, Colorado.
After acknowledgements and the film presentation, guests were invited to a beautiful reception held in the auditorium lobby. White linens, candles, and fine silver adorned the tables which included beautiful horse displays. Desserts and warm drinks were enjoyed as Vice-President Craig Walker, board members Robyn Walker, Bonnie Hansen, and society member, Phyllis Hamilton circled the crowd dressed in vintage clothing.
“To give is to receive,” and we are very thankful to those who made this premiere event possible: Mr. Eli Paul and staff, Liberty Memorial, Alycia Nichols, Owner, Something Borrowed, Rob Loethen, Joy Brigman, Tam Asplund, Joyce Cromer and Barbara Cattle.
Giving embodies the values of the Long family. As we share this “gift” of a film, a Thanksgiving season celebration was never more appropriate.
Most grateful thank you’s for cash donations toward our R.A.L.H.S. documentary, “Ours To Give,” to:
Without the above financial support, our project would not have been possible. Much appreciation!
Last of all, without President Tim Sullivan’s initial investment of cash and time, R.A.L.H.S. would not have been organized in August 2006.
... and A Big Thank You
... to Bonnie Hansen for the time she spent on our Board and for the long hours she put in as Film Chairperson.
... to Pete Hansen for sharing his talent and writing the script for “Ours to Give.”
