Same Kind of Different as Me - Pre-release Screening Benefiting The Stewpot

4x6_postcard_download.jpg

“Change Your World with One Simple Act of Kindness”

Join us for a red carpet preview screening of Same Kind of Different as Me benefitting The Stewpot!

SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME is based on the inspiring true story of international art dealer Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear), who befriends a homeless man (Djimon Hounsou) in hopes of saving his struggling marriage to Debbie (Renée Zellweger), a woman whose dreams will lead all three of them on the most remarkable journey of their lives. Jon Voight plays Hall's father, with whom he reconciles thanks to the revelations of his new life. Based on the New York Times bestseller by Ron Hall and Denver Moore.

Thanks to a generous donor who is covering all costs for this screening, all proceeds will go directly to The Stewpot. The fair market value of each ticket is $8; therefore, the tax deductible amount of the ticket price is $7.

To purchase tickets, please click here.

Should you have any questions, please contact Rebecca Eldredge, Development Director of The Stewpot, at rebeccae@thestewpot.org.

Come Celebrate Dallas’ Musical Heritage at the Site Where Many Moments Were Made!

Come Celebrate Dallas’ Musical Heritage at the Site Where Many Moments Were Made!

At one time in the early to mid-20th Century Dallas was poised to become the center of Western music. Some of the biggest names in early country music made some of their best hits here in Dallas.

From time to time Dallas gets around to looking back at its past, and with a little digging, is rewarded by being reminded of its rich, cultural history. The story of music producer Don Law is a great example.

It was Don Law’s 1937 session that produced bluesman Robert Johnson’s rare recordings on June 19-20 at 508 Park in downtown Dallas. At the same location Law contributed to producing the recording of “San Antonio Rose” by Bob Wills, which went on to sell a million records. Later, Law produced Lefty Frizzell’s classic “If You’ve Got the Money (I’ve Got the Time)” at Jim Beck’s studio on 1101 Ross Avenue and helped to define the hard county sound of Ray Price at Beck’s studio. Law continued throughout his career to help shape the music of Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, and many others.

Longtime Dallas band the Lucky Pierres will celebrate Don Law’s western swing, honky-tonk, and hard country recordings on the very site where many were created. Friends Alan Wooley, from the Dallas bands Killbilly and the Cartwrights, and Erik Swanson and Dustin Ballard, fromShoot Low Sheriff, will also perform some of Law’s legendary productions.

Tickets are free but please reserve them here: http://www.prekindle.com/promo/id/24116491636583029

Who: Lucky Pierres & Friends
What: 
Sing the Don Law Story
Where: 508 Park Amphitheater, Encore Park, Corner of Young at 508 Park Ave., Dallas
Parking: Available in First Presbyterian Church’s garage across the street at 408 Park Avenue.
