Attendees kickstart effort to support BAYCAT’s free arts program
What a night! It was a full house for the World Premiere of Zoom In – Episode 33: Me, Myself, & I!
Our first ever screening at Z Space, this evening of films, music, and a live performance is one we won’t soon forget. (You can relive and share all the fun with those who didn’t make it at https://baycat.org/baycatlive) All of us at BAYCAT were especially touched by the outpouring of community support to keep our free programs strong.
We raised the ante to prep our next set of youth for producing Zoom In: Episode 34. Our goal is to raise $34,000 before our next term starts on September 14th. From the premiere, we’re off to a great start with $2,044 raised that evening toward our goal. Keep this effort going – you can donate or share the http://donate.baycat.org link.
Together we can make sure this program is available for the youth who need it.
YOUTH PERSPECTIVE: “Being a live host for BAYCAT only took 1 hour and 36 minutes, but has had such a huge impact on me. I went from a shy little girl to a teenager with courage. BAYCAT over one summer, one term, has changed me in the best way possible. As a cinematographer, graphic artist, editor, and host, this helped me improve my experiences. For example, my dream is to go to Italy for college. Having these experiences now gives me a higher chance of getting accepted into the school, and getting a good job. It’s so much more than I had before BAYCAT.” – Lucrezia Berry, 14, BAYCAT Student, and Zoom In Co-Host
