It’s back and bigger than ever – CCTV’s Back Lot BBQ is coming soon and tickets are now on sale! Our beautiful new facility has an incredible back lot perfect for our annual event. What was once the Back Yard BBQ will now be the Back Lot BBQ and we’re pulling out all the stops for our 25th Anniversary. Scheduled for Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 5:30 p.m., the BBQ will feature food grilled by local chefs, live music by Zili Misik, a silent auction, and the presentation of the Leading Role Award to the Founding Board of Directors at CCTV. Robin Young, co-host of Here and Now on WBUR, and Dan Kennedy, media critic and journalism professor at Northeastern University, will both be inducted onto CCTV’s Honorary Board.The BBQ will take place in CCTV's back lot at 438 Massachusetts Avenue (entrance on Green Street between Brookline Avenue and Sidney Street).
All funds raised through this year’s BBQ will support CCTV’s year-round Youth Media Program, which fosters healthy youth development by involving teens in activities that promote media art, career and leadership skills while exploring issues affecting our community.
