On Monday, November 6th, the Palm Springs Women in Film and Television will hold their 9th Annual Broken Glass Awards. The gala luncheon was created to honor women who have “broken through the glass ceiling” in film, television, the arts and philanthropy to pave the way for others to follow. The event will be held at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort and Spa starting at 11:30am. Tickets are available for purchase at www.pswift.org.
Each year the BGA’s honor 4-5 women who have distinguished themselves as wonderful examples and successful pioneers in our industry. This year, the Broken Glass Awards will honor Lucie Arnaz, Jane Austin, Kellee McQuinn, Nelda Linsk & Stefanie Powers. Past honorees have included Jane Seymour, Mary McDonnell, Barbara Sinatra, Beverly Johnson, Alfre Woodard, and local philanthropist Art Museum Chair Donna MacMillan to name a few.
More than 300 guests attend the BGA’s each year. With Red Carpet arrivals and extensive media coverage, it is one of the outstanding events in the social season in the Palm Springs area. Proceeds from the BGA’s are directed to industry networking, workshops and scholarships enabling young people to advance their educations in film and television studies.
The BGA’s also support BookPALS, an outreach program where SAG alum read to nearly 2,400 elementary school students each week.
