Look Behind You!

A Father’s and Son’s Impressions
of “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland
Through Photograph and Song
With Steafán Hanvey


When: 7:30 pm
Where: University of St. Thomas
Scanlan Room, Jerabeck Center
4000 Mt. Vernon St.
Houston, TX 77006

Look Behind You! is a multi-media performance by Northern Irish
singer-songwriter Steafán Hanvey that details how a father and son
(both artists) have negotiated the personal and political landscapes
of Northern Ireland.

Using image and voice, anecdote and memory, the performance
showcases the prize-winning photojournalism of Steafán’s father,
Bobbie Hanvey, along with radio-edits of his interviews with some
of Northern Ireland’s best-known figures.

It's that time again!
Monday, May 12th marks the 4th Annual
Texas Prader-Willi Association
Golf Tournament


See if you can get a team together or come out on your own to
play. We will hook you up with other single players. If you can't
get out to play, please consider sponsoring a hole (good
advertising for your company!) or some families have sponsored
holes in honor of their child. There are also trophy sponsorships, a
beverage cart, lunch and dinner underwriting available.

The barbeque at The Olde City Pub follows the golf game with
raffle prizes, live and silent auctions, and LOTS OF FUN!  Please
join us and help us raise money for this very worthy cause. ALL
proceeds go to charity, primarily to provide camp for children (and
adults) with PWS. We've been able to run the camp since the first
golf tournament -- see our camp photos on our Facebook page!

We hope to see you on May 12th.
We are very grateful for your participation!
