November 1, 2008 - The Second Annual Adrienne Shelly Foundation Fundraising Gala will take place on Monday, November 17 to celebrate the life of the late filmmaker. The Adrienne Shelly Foundation supports the artistic achievements of female actors, writers and directors through a series of scholarships and grants, providing recipients with financial support and consultative access to the Foundation's advisory board of actors, directors, producers, composers, law, publicity, academic and trade professionals.
The Gala will also honor the 2007-2008 ASF Grant Recipients. Each year the Foundation recognizes the passion and commitment of women artists as they create their own work, providing them with support and guidance particularly during periods of transition and struggle.
The Gala will take place at the Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, New York University. To purchase tickets, visit http://www.adrienneshellyfoundation.org/gala2008.html.
