“HOLE IN THE HEART OF HOLLYWOOD” RALLY: KEEP THE MPTF NURSING HOME OPEN!
While elderly residents of the long-term care facility suffer daily under threat of eviction, the Motion Picture Television Fund (MPTF) will host “Heartbeat of Hollywood,” a golf tournament and “lavish cocktail party” on the very same campus. Unfortunately, even if requested by donors, the money raised will NOT go towards saving the home. Members of Saving the Lives of Our Own will gather outside this gala MONDAY, JUNE 1ST, AT 4:30 PM to protest that fact and to give a voice to the seniors directly affected by the closure.
To ALL members of the entertainment industry and various guilds, we urge you to show your support of the residents and their families by personally participating in the rally. We’re at a tipping point! Help ensure that this world-class facility remains open for these seniors and for generations to come who’ve contributed to the fund with the expectation that this important safety net would remain in place.
Wear your guild gear and tell the MPTF that it is NOT okay to evict elderly seniors, nor to abandon their 80-year-old mission of taking care of Hollywood’s own. Thank you!
