Premiere and Documentary Sponsors

Our Principal Premiere Sponsors have made generous contributions to the Hooks Institute to financially support both the completion of Duty of the Hour and the events surrounding the Red Carpet Premiere on April 20, 2012 at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Memphis.

Our Documentary Sponsors generously contributed to the Hooks Institute to assist the Institute in completing Duty of the Hour.

We are grateful to our Principal Premiere Sponsors, our Documentary Sponsors, and others whose donations have allowed us to meet expenses related to the creation of Duty of the Hour, and to expand and sustain existing programs.
