Movies in the moonlight

An inflatable cinema screen is hoisted in Polson Park as families congregate for fundraising fun

An inflatable cinema screen is hoisted in Polson Park as families congregate at sundown for a night of fundraising fun.

Interior Savings and Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs present Storks (2016), Thursday at Polson Park as part of their Moonlight Movies showings across communities in the Okanagan.

“We are delighted to be able to partner with Interior Savings and be part of the Moonlight Movie Tour,” said Richelle Leckey, community engagement coordinator of Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. “I hope everyone will take the opportunity to enjoy this unique movie experience with friends and family. Proceeds from the event will help us raise funds to support the essential after school programs and service ensuring everyone has a safe place to belong where they can discover and achieve their dreams.”

The screening of Storks —a Warner Bros. animated film following a stork who accidentally discovers his species’ true purpose — is one of 11 movie nights taking place throughout the Thompson Okanagan this summer.

“With the Interior Savings Moonlight Movie Tour, we are able to provide a family-friendly, free night out while raising money and awareness for youth programs in the community,” said Kathy Conway, CEO of Interior Savings. “To date, this tour has raised over $115,000 for local programs that help youth develop leadership and life skills.”

Pre-show activities will start at 7 p.m. with the movie scheduled to start at dusk. Patrons are encouraged to arrive early to get a good viewing spot and take part in the many family-friendly pre-show activities and concessions. While there is no charge to attend the event, a donation of $3 per person or $10 for a family of four is suggested. All funds raised will benefit the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. Bring your own blankets and lawn chairs. For more information, visit www.boysandgirlsclubs.ca or www.interiorsavings.com.
