CTPAA Donates to Bowen Foundation


The Cable Television Public Affairs Association will present the proceeds from its silent auction to the Emma L. Bowen Foundation for Minority Interests in Media Monday.

The $13,221 the CTPAA pulled in during the opening event of its recent Forum 2005 bring its total contributions to the Bowen Foundation to more than $85,000 over the past seven years.

“The CTPAA strongly supports and endorses the mission of the Bowen Foundation to increase access to permanent job opportunities for minority students,” CTPAA executive director Steve Jones said in a prepared statement. “The broad diversity within this country should be reflected by diversity and related employment opportunities within the cable industry.”
