It was a terrific turnout for WUSF’s “Sneak Preview” party at Pane Rustica in South Tampa on Sunday, May 19th.
More than 90 people showed up to watch a short video preview of our documentary “JFK in Tampa: The 50th Anniversary.”
WUSF Public Media’s General Manager, JoAnn Urofsky welcomed everyone and explained how important projects like this are… to capture, educate and preserve our rich history.
Tampa’s Mayor Bob Buckhorn was there to say a few words to the crowd, as did Tampa attorney Steve Yerrid and Retired Judge E.J. Salcines (who have their own great JFK stories).
I was also given a moment to thank all the many people who have been sharing their stories, photos, collectables and special memories from that day in November 1963.
This project touches my heart (as it does for so many of you).
Response to our eight-minute video “sneak-preview” was a success, inspiring several generous donations.
If you would like to contribute, have home movies or photos from President Kennedy’s last visit to Tampa, please contact me Lynn@jfkintampa.org or call 877-496-6999.
“JFK in Tampa: The 50th Anniversary” broadcast debut will be on WUSF TV, Sunday night, Nov. 10th at 8:00pm.
