Fitz and Mac Celebrate Free Speech, Access Tucson

Posted By on Tue, Apr 10, 2012 at 4:30 PM

Arizona Daily Star cartoonist Dave Fitzsimmons and comedian Robert Mac are headlining a Free Speech Benefit on behalf of Access Tucson, the plucky public-access TV station that's dedicated to helping Tucsonans get themselves on TV.

Access Tucson has seen its funding slashed in recent years and has had to do some major cutbacks in the services that it provides, including video training and TV studios for members. (Back in February, Access Tucson was kind enough to host a pair of presidential debates for Project White House, for example.)

The Free Speech gala next Wednesday, April 18, promises to be a whole lot of fun. Besides Fitz and Mac, you'll be able to enjoy a lovely dinner at Café a la C'Art in the Tucson Museum of Art courtyard and bid on a silent auction.

Good times for a good cause. Details here.
