CAL Film Series: Outside Ozona @ Cline Library Assembly Hall
Nov 12 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Meet the filmmakers! NAU alumni producer Carol Kottenbrook and director Joe Cardone, who worked on over thirty feature films, to introduce and discuss “Outside Ozona”.  Eleven NAU students and associates worked on the film.

“After all the slick formula movies, it’s refreshing sometimes to see a film that isn’t working from the rule book… there are moments I will remember, and Cardone evokes a real sense for the deserted night highways.”        – Roger Ebert, RogerEbert.com

Blood Donation Appointments: Visit BloodHero.com (Enter City) or Call 1-877-25-VITAL (1-877-258-4825)

Did you know . . . every month, it takes about 1,250 blood donors to save the lives of kids in Arizona’s two largest children’s hospitals. Blood donors save kids like 4-year-old Nathan who has required more than 58 blood transfusions. The Casa Grande toddler was born with a rare disorder that causes his red blood cells to rapidly break apart. Every month, he relies on the generosity of strangers to donate lifesaving blood – a need that will most likely continue the rest of his life. “To all the donors out there, I would like to say that you have gone above and beyond to save my son’s life and the lives of others,” expressed his mother April.  “Without blood transfusions, I would have lost my little boy!”

Because blood has a shelf life of 42 days, donations given in November can save lives through Thanksgiving – the longest extended holiday weekend of the year.  To make an appointment to transform lives by donating blood, call 877-25-VITAL (877-258-4825)) or visit www.BloodHero.com (enter your city or zip code).
