Day At The Ranch

A great time for a good cause

The MPTF – IATSE fundraiser, Day at the Ranch, returned in-person on Sunday, November 14! This family picnic at Calamigos Ranch featured a great lunch buffet, auction & raffle, and lots of fun outdoor activities for the whole family. Funds raised enable MPTF to continue helping industry workers in times of need including financial assistance, subsidized child care, and caring for aging parents.
