BKS Student Produced Films Add to Growing Achievement List!

Nothing could prepare Davie, Florida for the onslaught of fans that attended the film premieres of Specter, Caliens and Horizon.   The BKS Cinema Film Festival Showcase Screening sponsored by Florida Children’s Performing Arts Foundation was unleashed on this sleepy town. No one is sure if it will ever recover from the amount of talent that descended upon the Paragon Ridge Theaters on May 21, 2015.

Suzanne Mazzola Benefit Concert – March 19th

The Ameerally family has been personal friends of the Mazzola family for over 25 years and Suzanne Roberts Mazzola was also a BKS Mom as both Ella (5) and Matteo (7) attend the studio. The news of Suzanne Mazzola’s passing has affected many because of what a caring and giving person she was as well as the rest of the Mazzola/Roberts families.

The Mazzolas have donated food for our Spaghetti dinners the last few years. They have supported youth sports and local schools in the decades they have owned their restaurant. They have literally supported this community and we feel it our responsibility to return the favor. As a result, Broadway Kids Studio will hold a benefit concert at the Rose & Alfred Miniaci Center with 100% of the proceeds going to support Suzanne’s surviving family – her husband Joe Mazzola and their four children (Matteo, Ella, Luca, and newborn Owen).

The details of the events that led to Suzanne’s passing can be read below but we want this benefit concert to focus on Joe and these four kids. We want to help raise funds to support them in their time of need and hope that all of you reading this will come out for an entertaining evening that will benefit this family. Please share this information with everyone you can as we expect (with YOUR help) to completely sell out the Miniaci.
