Attend Film Screening in Beverly Hills

After more than 50 years in Community Theater, one of the biggest things on my "Bucket List" was to be in a movie. Last fall I actually had that opportunity when I auditioned for, and got, a small role in the production "Bucky and the Squirrels" which was filmed in Appleton WI. Working on this film was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

I received an invitation to the first screening of the film at a theater in Beverly Hills CA. I would love to once again spend time with all the wonderful people I met during the filming of this movie. I would very much like to take my granddaughter who was an extra in the movie. She will be pursuing a degree in theater and this would be a wonderful experience for me and her to share together.

Beverly Hills is a long way from Wisconsin. At 72 years old and retired, living on a Social Security check there is simply no way I can go. This may be my only opportunity to experience something like this. I am using GoFundMe in hopes of getting the opportunity of a lifetime. I would appreciate any amount you can spare to help me check this off my bucket list!

Bucky and the Squirrels. Back in 1968, a one-hit wonder rock band from Appleton, Wisconsin vanished in a plane crash somewhere in the Swiss Alps. Now, 50 years later, the aircraft has just been discovered with the Squirrels still inside - frozen alive. After they're returned home, thawed, and are struggling to return to their former selves, the IRS arrests them for owing a half century of back taxes. To stay out of prison, the Squirrels have to prove they can pay the money back by convincing the government they're capable of performing once again. Unfortunately, they're not.
