BOBBE JOY DAWSON - ZOOM TUTORIAL
GreenLight Women members were treated to a refreshing break from Covid on Saturday afternoon (Sept. 12,) when members Marion Rosenberg and Judy Chaikin interviewed famed Hollywood makeup artist Bobbe Joy Dawson via Zoom. Bobbe shared her beauty secrets in a twenty-minute video and spoke about her notable career, starting with her work at the Jon Peters salon in Beverly Hills (the inspiration for the movie Shampoo). A full report of the event, including Bobbe’s Top Ten Tips to look great on Zoom, can be found on the GreenLight Women Website at https://www.greenlightwomen.org/event-bobbejoydawson/

Bobbe’s newly-released book Raising Eyebrows: Confessions of a Beverly Hills Makeup Artist, can be found on Amazon, Nook, Apple Books and Kindle. She will be happy to sign a copy if you wish to purchase it on her website. www.bobbejoycosmetics.com.
GREENLIGHT WOMEN AND THE MPTF "CALL SHEET"

As you may know, GreenLight Women is participating in a wonderful program with the Motion Picture & Television Fund to make phone calls to retired members of the film community. Here’s one of the many rave reviews we’ve had for this program.

“For months I have been down in the dumps, not really depressed but constantly angry that my busy, productive life has been completely turned around by this pandemic prison I find myself in.

I had heard about the MPTF daily call volunteer program through GREENLIGHT WOMEN, so decided to sign up. The red tape was a little daunting. Not being computer savvy, I plodded through all of the steps and was finally accepted.
I was matched up with a delightful 90 year old gentleman, his wife of 60 years in a care facility and he still living alone in their home.

Monday through Friday at 10am on the dot I call. He picks up before the end of the first ring and we joyfully chat for half an hour with a great deal of laughter and learning, finishing each others sentences and sharing a wealth of experiences. We both have a lifetime love of all things industry; the list of conversational topics grow (and flow) with endless ease. My phone pal has brought me full circle back to my old, energetic, optimistic self; he is a true joy. I am supposed to be cheering him up, but that thirty minutes each morning lights up my day. Covid confinement, masks, sanitizers, and social distancing don’t seem so bad."

--Patricia Cullen

Spotlight on GreenLight Women Committees
BARBARA WEINTRAUB
CHAIR, CONNECTIONS COMMITTEE

The Connections Committee meets with any GreenLight Women member who would like a sounding board on a variety of topics. It could be about careers, projects, scripts, pitch decks, etc. It’s a safe place for any member to explore whatever it is she wants or needs and exemplifies creative team work.

Many GreenLight Women members have participated in a Connections meeting. The results have included finding a distributor for one member’s documentary, helping another member attach a well-known producer to her series concept by guiding her through development and refining a pitch deck for her, and assisting a successful marketing executive’s transition to screenwriter by offering feedback on a script.

If you are interested in meeting with the Connections Committee, we meet the last Wednesday of each month. For information email barbweintraub@gmail.com
Celebrity Sale 4 Hope
GreenLight Women Members:

We could really use your help!

As you know, we have partnered with City of Hope to help raise funds to continue their research and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases (including COVID-19). We were all shocked to hear of the death of Chadwick Boseman from cancer. The money we help raise can make a difference in the lives of thousands of people.
That is why we are holding the Celebrity Sale for Hope - a "Celebrity Garage Sale." What we need you to do is reach out to any celebrity you know who could donate something to this worthy cause. It’s easy to donate. When you get the commitment of a donation, nothing needs to be picked up or done at the moment. You make the donation through the secure website at www.cityofhope.org/sale4hope. The Donation Form is filled out by the donor, including a video about the item or a photo. When the item is purchased, City of Hope will make arrangements to pick up and deliver.

Here are a few items we have already received to give you some ideas.

-- Autographed Diana Ross CD
-- Autographed HAMILTON CD
-- Signed T-shirt Hugh Jackman
-- Autographed book THEN AGAIN by Diane Keaton
-- HOMEWORK - A MEMOIR OF MY HOLLYWOOD YEARS Signed by Julie Andrews

The Celebrity Sale 4 Hope will now launch with a VIP Preview PreSale on November 17 and then open to the public on November 18 and 19. VIP Preview PreSale tickets are $50 for the opportunity to be the first to buy these items. Hosted by Eric McCormack. If you have any questions, please contact Hollace Davids at HollaceDavids@gmail.com.

GreenLight Women will also receive a percentage of money raised, to help grow our organization.

*DIALOGUES ABOUT RACE
The Motion Picture Academy has been producing an ongoing series of dialogues about race, gender, and inclusion. Member Rommel Foster-Owens sent us this link and recommends that we watch the first conversation in the series between Whoopi Goldberg and Bryan Stevenson. Bryan Stevenson is a lawyer, a social justice advocate, the founder of The Equal Justice Initiative, and the author of the memoir, JUST MERCY, and he is brilliant.

This conversation between Whoopi and Bryan is powerful, incredibly insightful, and, ultimately, inspiring. As Romell stated in her initial email, “This is perhaps the most powerful and honest conversation about Race and Hollywood around.” Please watch it.

Here’s the link to the conversation:
