Food/Beverage Donations Needed for Harvardwood TV Pilot Showcase - LA

The Harvardwood TV Pilot Showcase will be happening in August, featuring staged readings of the first acts of four pilot scripts, selected from this year's Harvardwood Pilot Writing Program.

We have a tiny budget, which comes out of the writers' own pockets - but would like to be able to thank our actors (who are working for free) by feeding them at our three rehearsals, and by providing refreshments/snacks at our performance evening in mid-August. Big, heartfelt thanks for any donations will be prominently featured in the program, which will be seen by an impressive bunch of industry folks! (And Harvardwood is a volunteer-run nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, so donations are tax deductable).
