ALUMNI WEEKEND PLANNED FOR SPRING 2012
Jupiter, Florida: Kelly Dennehy, Executive Director of the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theatre (BRIFT), announced tentative plans for an alumni reunion weekend in the Spring of 2012. To that end, she is asking that all graduates of both the Burt Reynolds Institute for Theatre Training (BRITT) and the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theatre (BRIFT) email Finance Director, Donna Carbone, with their contact information at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dennehy requests that all graduates include their full name, address, telephone number and graduation year in their email.
Tentative plans include a welcome cocktail party at the Burt Reynolds Museum on Friday evening, a dinner dance on Saturday evening and a farewell breakfast on Sunday morning. Free time excursions for Saturday morning and afternoon are also in the works.
Dennehy, herself a graduate of BRIFT, commented on the lifelong dedication of mega star Burt Reynolds’ students and her hope to bring them all together again before the Institute moves to its planned new location in Burt Reynolds Park. In discussing the move, Dennehy mentioned how thrilled the board and staff of BRIFT are with the recent unanimous vote by the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners to lease an acre of land in the park for construction of a new, bigger, better Institute and Museum. No formal date for groundbreaking has been announced.
The Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre (BRIFT) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization committed to educating and involving the community in all aspects of film, television and theater as well as preserving Mr. Reynolds’ vast collection of Hollywood memorabilia and the history of the film industry.
