FAB Awards WE CARE ABOUT KIDS

Hollywood, CA. - FAB prexy Elayne Blythe presented FAB's "Award of Excellence" to WE CARE ABOUT KIDS for the organization's efforts to discourage kids from smoking. WE CARE co-founders, actors Allan Rich and Peter Antico, graciously accepted the award, noting both organizations' dedication to the welfare of children. The presentation was held at Parmount Studios and was preceeded by a screening of the short film, "THE BIG LEAF TOBACCO COMPANY", a comic lampoon of tobacco company marketing tactics, co-starring and directed by Rich, which has received positive feedback from kids in schools where it has been shown. The special guest for the evening was Dr. Jeffrey Wigand, the tobacco company whistleblower on which the Academy Award-nominated film, "The Insider" was based. The three-hundred+ guests were treated to a dessert reception afterwards. Forty FAB members and guests attended.
