And the award goes to.... Many of you saw Scooby's debut on the big screen in the film "The #1 Fan" which was part of the Easterseals Film Challenge. We are excited to share that out of 60 films and 150 eligible actors, Scooby is one of four up for the award of "Best Actor"!
The awards are being held in Los Angeles on May 10 (yes, that is very soon) and we would love to help Scooby and a family member get from Covington, Ohio to LA to attend in person, walk the Red Carpet and have an experience of a lifetime.
This would be an incredible opportunity for Scooby to not only be acknowledged for his amazing performance in the film but also for his inspirational performance in everyday life. From his unwavering commitment to give 110% in all he does to his genuine care and concern for people is something we can all learn from.
I'd also like to mention how much work my brother (Brian) put into writing and directing this film. When he told me the idea just a few short weeks before the contest it seemed almost impossible that everything could be aligned in order to pull the filming off, but he did it. He had a vision of what the film could be and he went after it, but most importantly he wanted to highlight Scooby and the contribution he has been to not only our hometown, but to all those he's touched.
As you can imagine a trip to Los Angeles is no small endeavor and to that end I am hoping that the generosity of the people reading this can make this once in a lifetime trip a reality for Scooby.
Any donation and sharing of this page would be greatly appreciated. If anyone would prefer to donate airline miles or has a place in the Los Angeles area for them to stay this would be incredibly helpful as well.
Thank you in advance for helping Scooby get to celebrate just how spectacular he is!
