The Point Foundation

Calpernia and Andrea hope you will join us at The Point Foundation's gala event in Hollywood on Monday, June 12, 2006 at 6:00 pm for a benefit reading of Save Me, with proceeds to go to GLBT scholarships.

The goal of the event is to raise $250,000 to support The Point Foundation which provides college scholarships and mentoring programs for LGBT students of distinction. This year TPF is expected to receive more than 5000 applications from students attending colleges and universities throughout the United States. These students represent the full spectrum of diversity. Many of these students would not be able to pursue their dreams of higher education were it not for the critical support of The Point Foundation. Fundraising is being spearheaded by Point Foundation Trustees Judith Light, Herb Hamsher, and Joe McCormack, with the assistance of a 75 member Host Committee comprised of leaders and philanthropists in the LA LGBT and Ally community.

TICKETS FOR THE EVENT ARE BEING OFFERED AT TWO LEVELS OF SUPPORT

Prime Seats at $1,200 per person. Choice Seats at $350 per person. Ticket sales and marketing will be directed towards The Point Foundation’s extensive database (apx.10,000) of contributors and volunteers. This group presents highly attractive demographics for any business seeking to build its profile in the LGBT and Ally community. Additionally, special invited guests will add to the glamour and excitement of the event.

ABOUT THE CAST OF SAVE ME

Chad Allen starred in the acclaimed TV series “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.” Recently, Chad played a dual role in the film “End of the Spear” which earned a Crystal Heart Award from Heartland Film Festival. Courageously, in the October 9, 2001 issue of The Advocate, Chad came out as a gay man.

Robert Gant continues to emerge as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors. Robert recently played Professor Ben Bruckner on the hit television series “Queer As Folk.”

Judith Light has captivated audiences worldwide since her portrayal of ‘Angela Bower’ on the ABC-TV hit comedy series “Who’s the Boss?.” She is currently starring in the new Jennifer Westfeldt (‘Kissing Jessica Stein’) film “Ira and Abby.”

The Point Foundation will present a premiere live reading of Save Me, June 12, at the Directors’ Guild of America, Los Angeles. Currently in production, this independent film starring Chad Allen, Robert Gant and Judith Light challenges the ideals of the entire community when Mark (Chad Allen), a good looking and lost young gay man, leaves his life of drugs and sex and comes home, looking for answers to the emptiness in his soul. He checks into a Christian run (by Judith Light) Ex Gay Ministry hoping to be “cured” of his “affliction”. He winds up confronting the truth of his heart and spirit after falling in love with Scott (Robert Gant). Everyone involved is transformed. A poignant story that tackles the myths surrounding this kind of therapy.

“There is a revolutionary new organization called The Point Foundation reaching out to gay teens.” — Oprah Winfrey

“The Point Foundation is one of the few national groups conceived explicitly to help gay kids, and it is a leading example of how the gay movement is responding to the emergence this decade of hundreds of thousands of openly gay youths.” — TIME Magazine
