Movie Premier in North Carolina
Denver Hollingsworth, from Wallace, North Carolina has a 13-year-old brother, Jackson who is affected with Lamellar Ichthyosis. Denver and several friends made a movie titled “Dog Gone”. The future film stars generously donated all of the proceeds from the premier of their movie to FIRST. In addition to the admission fee of $2 to attend the premier, the group sold individual copies of the DVD of their movie and donated a portion of those proceeds to FIRST. Their efforts generated $1,000.00 for the Foundation. During the weeks prior to and after the premier, the group appeared on local morning radio shows, and in the local newspaper, “The Daily News” out of Jacksonville, North Carolina. Ichthyosis was a major portion of the conversation in these interviews and FIRST's website was mentioned often as a resource for more information.
