Thanks to You, We Are Blessed
Thank you to all involved for a wonderful evening featuring Johnny Crawford at the West Coast premiere of Bill Tilghman and the Outlaws.
We’re elated to say it was a sold out event and fun was had by one and all. To read all about this special evening: https://www.thedesertway.com/bill-tilghman-and-the-outlaws/
The original invitation read: “Dust off your cowboy boots, strap on your spurs and save the date of September 7, 2019 for a special event.”
Bill Tilghman and The Outlaws had its West Coast Premiere and Pre-National Release Party in Thousand Oaks, California, under the stars. Many thanks to Wyatt and Lisa McCrea for donating and hosting this event at the beautiful Joel McCrea Ranch on their big outdoor screen.
Also, a huge shout out to Wayne Shipley and Dan Searles and all involved in the making of Bill Tilghman for donating ALL the proceeds from this event directly to Johnny Crawford and his wife Charlotte, to help them battle Johnny’s Alzheimer’s, especially with all the expense of needing full time assistance. Johnny and Charlotte thank you from the bottom of their hearts.
Johnny’s buddy and event organizer Darby Hinton was there, and of course the man of the hour, Johnny Crawford. And there were some truly amazing people who showed up for the event. Bruce Boxleitner was the very first to tell Darby, “Sign me up!”
Just some of the cast members from Bill Tilghman and The Outlaws who joined Darby and Johnny at the premiere: Lana Wood, Robert Carradine, Johnny Alonso, Eliza Kelley, and Don Collier—who drove all the way in from Arizona.
