“Losing Control” Philadelphia Screening

The Philadelphia Film Festival welcomed back Philadelphia native Valerie Weiss, writer and director of the romantic comedy “Losing Control.” The film was screened to a large crowd on October 22 at International House Philadelphia, which coincided with Weiss’s 20-year reunion from George Washington High School. Weiss invited all of her classmates to share the excitement.

“Losing Control” is loosely based off of events that occurred in Weiss’s life. It tells the story of a woman who is a young scientific genius, and strives not only to produce results from her long-term experiment, but also from her long-term boyfriend. This causes her to do everything she can to prove that her boyfriend is “the one,” as if he were a science experiment. “Losing Control” is a film with cast members that are witty and talented and deliver Weiss’s dialogue exquisitely.

After the film screening in which Weiss’s closest friends and family attended, the crowd headed over to a local restaurant for an after-party to celebrate her success.

Listen to Valerie Weiss being interviewed about her film on Z88.9 at Burlington County College.

On October 8, Axis Construction Management teamed up with the Front Row Foundation to create an event that incorporated golf and entertainment with charity.

Front Row Foundation is the region’s leader in creating transformative sports and entertainment experiences for people battling life-threatening challenges. Numerous people came out to the Plymouth Country Club to support the cause. In an attempt to raise money, sponsors created teams to tee off on the green for a full afternoon. Afterwards, participants enjoyed evening festivities, which included music, cocktails, dinner, and raffles.

The event was a huge success and raised more than $50,000!
