Join us for the Virtual Holiday Toast 2020 with the legendary behind the scenes women who powered the smash hit The Old Guard!

Get in the (virtual) room with legends! These exemplary women will be toasted by equally brilliant friends and colleagues who know their professionalism, artistry, and craft. Join us in raising a glass to them during our panel and Q and A. 

Virtual Holiday Toast 2020 celebrates women making action films and those who recognize their brilliance!  We look forward to seeing you at this popular yearly fundraiser.

Virtual Silent Auction Is Live

2020 has been a little different, to say the least. Since we can’t bid in person, we are hosting the annual silent auction that we usually do as part of our Holiday Toast on Facebook. Simply join the group and start bidding in the comments. Invite friends and family. We will DM you if you are the winner.  However, it’s so much more fun to hear your name called, live at our Virtual Holiday Toast, so get your tickets ASAP!

Join the Silent Auction Group here:

Drive Through VIP Gift Bags

December 5th 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM,

Members of Women In Media with tickets and non-members with VIP tickets may join us at our contact-free drive-through pick-up of your physical VIP gift bag on December 5th from 11 AM – 3 PM PST, ONLY at a location in Burbank, CA (exact location will be sent to ticket holders). Tickets purchased after December 4th will not have the ability to collect a physical VIP bag.

Ashly Covington will be on hand between 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM to take your picture with a long lens as you drive through and collect your bag. It’s the closest we have to a black carpet this year, and we would like folks to maintain COVID protocols.
