A fund raiser, hosted by IATSE raised more than $13,000 in support of U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich, it was announced by IATSE President Thomas C. Short.

The event, held in the headquarters of Local 80, Motion Picture Studio Grips, was one fund raiser in a series of many that have been held in various cities throughout the country with future events being planned.
