Lights! Camera! Action!

Fifteen of Avenues’ volunteers came together to assist with a pledge drive at WTTW Channel  11 studios in Chicago on December 4th.  The group was seated in the studio behind tiers of laptops and phones and given a brief training session before “going live” during the programming breaks.   While some volunteers experienced a little stage fright, the group quickly became initiated to the surroundings and technical procedures of entering subscriber pledges and auction bids.  Special shout out to Marc Blumenthal who took in the winning bid - $6,200 – for a trip to New York City and tickets to the Broadway production of Hamilton.
