Las Vegas-produced documentary, Semicolon; The Adventures of Ostomy Girl, will have its home city premiere during a March 15 screening at Brenden Theaters inside the Palms Casino. The documentary, which has won entry into several film festivals across the country, chronicles the tragedies and triumphs of 25-year-old Dana Marshall-Bernstein, who suffers from Crohn’s disease.
The March 15 screening will double as a fundraiser for the local chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and the Cleveland Clinic Digestive Disease Institute. There is a $50 donation per ticket for individuals, and corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available. Proceeds from the fundraising efforts will directly support CCFA’s research efforts and the foundation’s programs for those living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The fundraiser will also support the Cleveland Clinic Digestive Disease Institute’s efforts. One of the top digestive disease centers in the U.S., it serves more than 66,000 patients suffering from bariatric, colorectal and gastrointestinal diseases each year.
