TRIO Philadelphia chapter had a couple dozen recipients and donor families viewing the Three Rivers premier projected on the big screen at Gift of Life Donor program (OPO) office Sunday (Oct 4th) evening in Philadelphia, working with our local CBS affiliate to get coverage and they did a great job with the 11 o'clock news story (click here to see that CBS news story). The event was hosted in partnership with theGift of Life Donor Program (who handled the media) and everyone had a great time. Here are some on-line photos taken by Susan Pincus (TRIO Board member and Philadelphia chapter phtographer): http://www.kodakgallery.com/susanpincus/donate/3_rivers_premier
TRIO Philadelphia provided "TV snacks" and gave out the CBS Three Rivers green bracelets, challenging each attendee to go out and find people in their network to engage in discussion of the show with some open ended questions that the audience developed to help with that, using the green ribbons to hand to people in their network to get them to watch next week's show.
Overall our audience really liked the show but on a scale of 1 (low) to 10 (highest) they gave it about a 7 or 8 (editor's note: personally, I rated it a 10 but I was the only one to give that high a mark to it).
Everyone went home both to watch the nightly news and to fill out Donate Life's on-line survey (which you too can do by linking tohttp://www.donatelifehollywood.org/ after watching the show).
If you have not done so already, please go to Donate Life Hollywood to complete the on-line survey.
