Help Support The Festival



















On Sunday, March 20th, 2005, we celebrated three birthdays of people we care about--Jon & Betty Jane Berberian and Larry J. Andrade--with a special film screening and party. It was an amazing evening that generated over $2,000 for the Friends of the Columbus Theatre Arts Center Fund.
