Christy Scott Cashman has been on the cover of every Holiday Edition of IMAGINE since our inception in April of 1998. So it has been a very long and loyal relationship, one I value highly. I always see her as being as beautiful on the inside as she is on the
outside. Her outward beauty got her on the cover; her inner beauty keeps her there. In addition she is a bright and most caring individual. I first met her as an accomplished model, actor and budding filmmaker.
She has paid her dues and then some along the way acting in many independent and
studio films. I still believe that one day I will produce a Christy Cashman Film Festival
showing all her work and donating the proceeds to one of her favorite charities.
And speaking of charities, her and co-producer Mary Chiochios CharityWarriors
Fund Raising Campaign is one that everyone should pay attention to. It’s a multiplatform
six week program that helps women who head non-profit charities to raise funds in a competitive and nurturing environment that is both entertaining and fun. Please check out their website at https://charitywarriorschallenge.com/
and participate, tell your friends about it.
Somehow, Christy finds a way to create the fun while doing really serious work for
worthy causes. Christy is a strong supporter of our industry including regional film festivals, organizations that focus on making our industry better and richer and of individuals. She's not afraid to tackle anything that’s worthy as she is an excellent problem solver. It’s been great to have her as a friend all these years.

Once again a year filled with uncertainty is coming to an end. I’m grateful for that as uncertainty impedes decision-making and that grinds many business decisions and spending to a halt or at least postpones them. One thing we can be sure of, though, is that our industry in our region is growing. It is our responsibility to keep it that way.
