Weekend event for non-writers feeling the strike’s pain

A message from WGA member Andrea Berloff, announcing an event for non-writer members of the entertainment industry who are bearing the brunt of the strike:

As the WGA strike moves into a second month, we, a group of writers, want to recognize the members of our community who are out of work or otherwise impacted. While we support our union’s actions, we feel badly that the strike is taking a toll on so many people who are not writers. We know that many in the industry have been going through a tough time… and at this point, we probably could all use a dose of levity.

To that end, if you are not a writer and are out of work because of the strike, we invite you and your kids to a free afternoon of mini-golf and arcade games at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park. We will provide pizza, ice cream and lots of fun.

WGA writers thank our community
December 11, 4-7pm
Sherman Oaks Castle Park
4989 Sepulveda Blvd.
Sherman Oaks, CA  91403

    BS! If they felt bad they’d get their ungrateful worthless butts back to work.
    “Gee, I feel awful that you lost your house. But I want what I want and that’s all that matters.”
    That sounds more truthful.

    Tuesday is a weekend? Well, yeah I guess it is WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE A JOB.
