This year, Circle funding helped Moscow's downtown non-profit movie theater, the Kenworthy, provide afternoon movies for young people of all ages. Here's what the Kenworthy's Executive Director, Christine Cavanaugh, had to say about the impact of our gift:
This summer we chose 5 classic movies and 5 blockbuster films to show for our Children’s Matinee Summer Movie Series. We had over 1500 kids join us this summer for the movie series of which 250 were free admissions. We expanded our series from 9 weeks in 2010 to 10 weeks this summer and this wouldn’t have been possible without the funding from The Giving Circle. The funding was used for bringing classic kids films to KPAC to help enrich the lives of those children attending with quality family entertainment. cavanaugh These movies included:
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The Wizard of Oz
The Princess Bride
Not only did the funding from The Giving Circle help pay for the rental cost of the classic films, it also went towards keep our ticket prices affordable for all families in the Moscow/Pullman area.
If you'd like to continue helping the Kenworthy, contact Christine at 208-882-4127 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Kenworthy is always looking for a few good volunteers to take tickets at the door. Volunteers receive a free admission to the movie with a bag of free popcorn and a volunteer appreciation preview night each year.
