Happy Holidays! 2016 has been quite a year for Team 3K1A – and we’re not even done yet! We wanted to take this time to thank you for all of your support of our company over the years and to let you know about the exciting projects and events we have coming up.
We are thrilled to be working with Paramount Pictures, Denzel Washington, Values Partnerships and the Campaign for Black Male Achievement on August Wilson’s FENCES, which hits theaters on Christmas Day, 2016. FENCES stars the legendary Denzel Washington and Viola Davis and is already being called a leading contender for an Academy Award! You can check out the sneak-peak trailer here.
The story of FENCES is in so many ways the story of the holiday season – family and love. It’s about a father, a mother and a son – all the things they say to each other – and the things left unsaid. To promote the theme of family healing, we are launching a program called #ACROSSTHEFENCE. On Wednesday, November 30th, we launched our social media campaign for FENCES, in which are sharing healing messages to loved ones, photo dedications, music and art dedications, and even video interviews to loved ones. The idea is to encourage people to build bonds with family and loved ones in new ways, sharing healing messages that previously were left unsaid. See examples here. Some of the submissions will receive special acknowledgement, and three submissions will receive an all-expense-paid trip to meet Denzel and Viola at an upcoming premier of FENCES. Sign up to join us today!
And on Saturday, December 17th, we are excited to be hosting our Naughty or Nice Holiday Party & Toy Drive at Claudia’s here in Washington, DC. Break out your best Santa hat and help us bring joy to kids in the DMV! This holiday gathering is a party with a purpose – and you’re invited to take part in the festivities! Bring family, loved ones and associates for an epic evening with great food, beverages, live music from the DJ and the opportunity to pay it forward to our community. Pick up a toy at a store nearest you to spread cheer to the children of our great city and the surrounding area. We hope to see you there!
Wishing all of the very best to you and yours. We hope to be a part of your holiday plans!
