Award-Winning Actress to Help Raise Money for Local Non-Profits


LOUISVILLE, KY (June 25, 2010) – Actress Diane Gaidry will make guest appearances at Pup-Corn and A Movie and at Honoring the Animals, Candlelight Vigil in September. The weekend fundraisers are presented by Chance’s Spot, Pet Loss and Support Resources with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the New Albany Animal Shelter.

Diane has played lead roles in numerous independent films, including “Loving Annabelle” for which she won the Best Actress award at Outfest in 2006, as well as numerous episodic television guest spots, including a role in the hit show “Medium.” Pup-Corn and A Movie will feature the film which she co-produced and stars in, “The Dogwalker.” The movie follows the moving, transformational journey of Ellie Moore (Diane Gaidry) who, within the dogs she cares for, finds lost pieces of herself as she fumbles with the leash to her own life. She struggles to hold on as it pulls her toward a brighter future before her past catches up with her.

The event takes place on Saturday, September 11, 2010 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. at The Hotel Louisville. Tickets can be purchased online at beginning Monday, July 5, 2010. Tickets are $35 for those who would like to attend a meet-and-greet with Diane prior to the movie. Hor d’oeuvres and beverages as well as preferred seating at the movie will be included.
