Just a year ago, David Fetzer, a talented young artist, actor, screenwriter, musician, community organizer, and beloved member of the Liberty Heights Fresh family passed away at the tender age of 30. Both David and his sister Jessica worked at LHF and were treasured members of our team. While nothing can fill the void to our community of this loss, to honor his memory the David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists, aka "The Davey Foundation" was formed to support, mentor, and encourage young and talented artists.
The Davey Foundation Kickoff Event and Fundraiser is December 17, from 7 - 9pm at the Tower Theatre, 876 East 900 South in Salt Lake City. The event will premiere two short films written by David, and feature him acting in two other films. There will also be a special musical number as well as a silent auction. Tickets are just $10, please Click Here to purchase tickets and more information.
The Foundation's goal is to nurture artists 35 and younger who have demonstrated a high level of artistic accomplishment. The theatre grants provide the selected playwrights a professional stage production or reading, working in conjunction with Plan-B Theatre and Salt Lake Acting Company. The film grant provides funding, mentoring, and a premiere of the resulting short film at an annual December event.
