redCENTER Lounge Fundraiser – in detail."> Tracey Zeeck explains the redCENTER Lounge Fundraiser – in detail.






Well, here we are, just four days from the kickoff of the tenth annual deadCENTER Film Festival. Think about it – that means just ten short years ago, we didn’t even have a film festival in Oklahoma City. For those of you too young to remember, there used to be a lot of Pictionary and charades played to fill the second week in June. And lots of drinking. Fortunately that is no longer the case. Except for the drinking. There’s still lots of drinking. And the occasional game of Pictionary, if only for old times’ sake. But I digress.

As a member of the board of directors, a faithful fan of the festival, and a self-proclaimed “creativity junkie”, I can promise you that deadCENTER does not disappoint. In my opinion, it’s one of the best things about OKC, and it only gets better year after year.

Take this year for example. It’s our tenth anniversary. An occasion to celebrate. So we are piggybacking our first-ever VIP fundraiser on the already-outstanding, annual kickoff party and outdoor screening. Pretty smart, eh? (Thanks again, Anthony McDermid!)

You’re awesome! Hope your screening went well!), but this party is so inclusive. The stars of the big opening attend (the film was Kick-Ass and everyone said it was great), along with all the pals we’ve accumulated over the years. It’s the touchstone party of the weekend. And here’s who we schmoozed with in chronological order, starting with the upstairs:
