“A Sweet Trunk Show”…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cupcake Wars Winner, Annette Starbuck of Goodie Girls teams up with Home Baked Beanies to create “A Sweet Trunk Show” to benefit Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting…
January 17, 2012, (Los Angeles, CA) Goodie Girls are preparing to host their second benefit with Home Baked Beanies, most popular for their “Scented Cupcake Beanie”. This event will take place on Thursday January 19, 2012 from 1-4pm at Goodie Girls (415 E. Broadway #100, Glendale, CA) and will benefit Reading, Writing, It’s Exciting. Guests can expect to be treated to cupcake samples, discounted cupcakes and Home Baked Beanies.

Annette Starbuck, the multi-Award Winning Founder of GOODIE GIRLS exuberates a joyous passion for creating a variety of baked delights through her valiant curiosity and enchanting talent. Even more remarkable, aside from countless independent Instructional Culinary Sessions, Annette has never actually enrolled into any institutional Culinary Programs or attended Culinary School, but she’s achieved acclaimed success only through her seasoned personal experience and pure creative determination. “Baking is a passion of mine and I create every cupcake with all my heart and soul. Whether for a small occasion of getting together with Friends, BBQ’s, Showers or a big event for Charities, Weddings, or Banquets I craft each batch as I was feeding my own family – it’s who I am at the core. I am lucky to have my whole family with me on this adventure including my rock star husband Anthony, my amazing father Doug and last but definitely the most influential, my step mom Stephanie. Together we Rock the Cupcake World!”

HOME BAKED BEANIES are the first smelly hat company. The owner and creator of this new sweet idea is Tracey Scott, as well as the whole family that contributes to the designs. Smelly or not, the styles are totally unique like their cupcakes hats that smell like cupcakes as well as the hand tie rag hats, vintage shabby chic, every color, every style, and every size. They invite everyone to stop and “smell the hats“. Fans of these unique beanies can find their own Home Baked Beanie to match their personality/style at several locations including: Big Bear, CA, San Diego, CA, Los Angeles (Select boutiques), Trunk shows, holiday events and red carpet events.

READING, WRITING, IT’S EXCITING (RWE) is a nonprofit literacy program designed to improve the reading and writing skills of at-risk children. They do this by providing one-to-one writing mentors throughout the school year for kids who are chosen by their teachers to participate. The reason for RWE’s program is that research shows that if children aren’t writing and reading at their grade level by the end of second grade, they almost never catch up. Further research has also shown that as many as 80% of those kids eventually drop out of high school, are unemployed, are in prison or join gangs. And how accurate are those numbers? Several states actually base their future prison building plans on them! There are over 45,000 second grade students in L.A., and only 41% of them are proficient in writing and reading. Their goal is to help all of them… For more information about RWE, please visit: www.rweprogram.org

THE SICILIAN GIRL is an Italian drama based on true events – Teenage Girl Breaks Mafia’s Code of Silence…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Music Box Films presents THE SICILIAN GIRL private screening Sept 7, 2010 at Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles…

THE SICILIAN GIRL is an Italian drama based on true events – Teenage Girl Breaks Mafia’s Code of Silence… THE SICILIAN GIRL is a fictionalized account based on the life and journals of Rita Atria, the determined 17-year-old daughter of a slain mob boss. Too young and powerless to take immediate revenge, she began keeping detailed notes of the crimes she saw. In 1991, during a period when the Mafia was under increasing pressure from the Italian judicial system, Rita gives evidence to famed anti-Mafia judge Paolo Borsellino against the “family business.” Sicilian native Veronica D’Agostino (Respiro) gives a compelling performance as the impetuous heroine, consumed by rage and grief. Gérard Jugnot (The Chorus) plays the thoughtful, hard-nosed chief prosecutor of Palermo, who has his hands full with the mercurial Rita. Both of them are constantly at deadly risk from the seemingly all-powerful mob. Like the recent hit Gomorrah, this film shows organized crime’s pervasive grip on the country, but is told from a more personal perspective. A native of Sicily, writer/director Marco Amenta has directed several documentaries about the Sicilian Mafia.
“**** (Four Stars)! An enlightening factual and atmospheric account of large-scale corruption and individual courage – Sunday Times (Australia)

“**** (Four Stars)! Highly recommended. Engrossing. As entertaining as any Hollywood Thriller.” – The Dominion Post (New Zealand)
