AMERICAN WOMEN IN RADIO AND TELEVISION announces an educational and donation ceremony on NOVEMBER 13th at ROOSVELT MIDDLE SCHOOL in SAN DIEGO. The ceremony will celebrate an important national educational program for public middle schools across the country called "AWRT EMPOWERING AMERICA". AWRT and FORD MOTOR COMPANY have joined forces to make this program happen.
Following the donation ceremony on DECEMBER 5th THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER's 17th ANNUAL WOMEN IN ENTERTAINMENT POWER 100 BREAKFAST will take place at the BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL.
"AWRT has worked for more than half a century to help women gain parity with their mal counter-parts, and an event of this magnitude goes a long way in demonstrating that progress is being made," AWRT National Chair MARRY BENNETT said. "WE appreciate THR for holding the event and the support of AWRT's sponsoring partners for helping us toast the collective achievements of these inspirational women."
"THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER is proud to recognize the accomplishments and highlight the powerful position of women in the entertainment industry," PUBLISHER ERIC MIKA said. "We are very excited to be working with AWRT, which has helped paved the way for so many women and contributed to the success of not only this year's "WOMEN IN ENTERTAINMENT" honorees, but also for other women to follow in their footsteps."
