Benefit Screening of “Mission to Lars” on Wedneday August 8th 6PM @ MIND Institute Auditorium

Hello Everyone,

Please join us for a special benefit at UC Davis MIND Institute on Wednesday, August 8th from 6:00-8:30pm for a special screening of a documentary film featuring one of our very own researchers, the MIND Institute’s Dr. Randi Hagerman.  The film revolves around the journey of Tom, a genteman who has a type of autism, Fragile X, and his family’s quest to make his one burning desire to come true, to meet his favorite musician, Lars Ulrich the drummer from Metallica.  This special screening is ostensibly free, but donations will be accepted at the door.  Prior to the start of the film there will be two guest speakers, Dr. Randi Hagerman the Director of UC Davis MIND Institute’s Fragile X Program, and Kate Spicer who is Tom’s brother, co-star and the film’s producer.

This should be a fun night as we view this documentary film before it’s release in American theaters.  Space is limited.  ***Please RSVP johnathon.d.anderson@gmail.com with the number of desired seats***.  Donations accepted at the door; checks can be made payable to “UC Regents” and under Memo make sure to put “MIND Fragile X Program”.   To view a trailer for the film please visit:  http://missiontolars.com/
