Ticket sales were brisk for the one-day-only showing of "Glen Campbell--I'll Be Me"

The award-winning film showcasing the career of the famous musician and documenting his farewell tour prior to retiring due to Alzheimer's disease was warmly received by Lufkin audiences.  The film came within 12 tickets of becoming a complete sell-out for the two sponsored shows on March 14 at The Pines Theater in downtown Lufkin, Texas.

            "We received many comments from people who viewed the film and found it both entertaining and extremely moving," said Amy Thomas, executive director of PineCrest Retirement Community, which sponsored the event.  "The film helps increase awareness of the difficulties individuals and their families face in dealing with Alzheimer's disease and other memory issues in the elderly population." 

In 2011, Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and went public with the diagnosis-the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world in such an open manner.

Many thanks to the sponsors who helped make it possible for PineCrest to bring "I'll Be Me" to Lufkin!
