Important Updates for Because of Sam
It’s 2019, and WOW, has Tampa native and 2009 Gaither High School Homecoming King, Sam Piazza, continued to shine!
Sam stays active with Best Buddies International, Gigi’s Playhouse (and many other meaningful endeavors) AND works for PDQ!
Renee Warmack Productions, LLC is working hard to fundraise and produce Because of Sam, the documentary movie that will show how Sam Piazza, a courageous young man with Down syndrome, rose above stereotypes to be crowned Homecoming King at his high school.
The love and support of his family, church, and an inclusive school culture helped Sam accomplish extraordinary things. His positive attitude and desire to achieve more than was expected of him makes Sam an inspiration to all of us.
This movie will show the world that being different can be difficult, yet the conflicts, triumphs, and epiphanies that occur in a disabled person’s life can serve as catalysts for positive change in the lives of other people.
The documentary will change people’s belief systems from that of doubting the capability of people with disabilities to believing that they can achieve great things. Furthermore, the viewers will reflect on their own lives and be inspired to tap into their latent potential to pursue their goals.
The movie is scheduled to premiere in July 2019, in recognition of the Americans with Disabilities Act passage.
