Join us for a Mimosa Matinee to learn more about our communities homeless and to raise funds for the Homeless in our community. Presented by the Rotary Club of Tacoma Sunset, the Rotary Club of Tacoma North and the Rotary Passport Club of Pierce County.
 
Signs of Our Times, The Signs You See, The People You Don’t - Have you ever wondered about the person behind the cardboard signs by the freeway on and off ramps? What is the story there? That is exactly what was behind the making of the documentary 
 
Date:          Saturday, January 18, 2020
Time:         10:30 AM
Location:  Blue Mouse Theatre, Tacoma Proctor District
Tickets:     $25     
 
 
The event will feature mimosas, a small silent auction, fun and games, a raise the paddle, and a showing of this important film all to benefit this important cause. The Blue Mouse will also donate a portion of all concession sales back to the event!
 
Tacoma Sunset Rotary member Sue Pivetta spent a year driving up and down the I-5 corridor from Canada to San Diego interviewing people holding cardboard signs, asking surprising questions. Still Sue wondered how could this full length fascinating film could be more than an artistic adventure to be shown at film festivals? Her question was answered when the creativity and passion of Tacoma Sunset Rotary members took action.
 
Sue Pivetta commented:
 
“I knew the film was compelling and moved people to better understanding from various showings I had given to the art community. People said they were ‘changed’.  But when Rotary did the paddle raise and so many responded, I was truly proud of the film and grateful to Rotary. I want this film to be shown by every Rotary in every community.  Together we can raise awareness and raise money for helper agencies.  And you will be enriched seeing the people and hearing the stories of those behind the signs - as I was.
 
Proceeds from this event will benefit LASA, an organization committed to the prevention and recurrence of homelessness.
