Hill Country Film Society event to showcase pursuits of 'uncommon artist'

The Hill Country Film Society will partner with the Will Walk Foundation, which uses art and film to create awareness about paralysis from spinal cord injury, for its second annual fundraiser “Eat. Drink. Be Inspired.”

The event will be held Friday, Feb. 21, beginning at 6 p.m., in the ballroom of the Admiral Nimitz Museum, 340 East Main Street in Fredericksburg.

Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased online at: www.eat-drink-inspire2014.eventbrite.com. Seating is limited.

All proceeds will benefit the Hill Country Film Society and the Will Walk Foundation.

The film society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering, encouraging and promoting independent film production.

This year’s event will again bring together the best of food, wine, art and film in the heart of the Texas Hill Country with an evening featuring artist Jared Dunten.

The event will screen “Will Walk,” a 2013 U.S. production directed by Marty and Adam Butler and Craig Parker. The short documentary portrays events in Dunten’s life as he refuses to fully accept life as a quadriplegic after suffering a spinal cord injury in 2000.
