A Vernon business is providing a great night of family entertainment.
Nature’s Fare Markets will screen The Polar Express outdoors Dec. 7 at 5 p.m. at its corporate office at 101–4201 25A Ave., immediately behind Monahan Agency on 41st Avenue.
Admission is a minimum donation of $2 per person and it will be donated to the North Okanagan Neurological Association.
Along with the movie, Nature’s Fare will be offering hot drinks, healthy snacks, and fresh baking, with all proceeds being donated to NONA.
NONA provides a variety of programs, including infant development, supported child development, speech therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, family support, and autism support.
Nature’s Fare is screening The Polar Express as a part of its core values challenge.
“The challenge occurs twice per year, and it encourages Nature’s Fare employees to get out into the community to live the company’s core values,” states a release.
“This December is the inaugural challenge and each store is creating its own community event centered on the theme Spread Joy.”
In addition to the movie and goodies, there will also be a bonfire.
Anyone attending the movie must bring their own folding chair and they are reminded to dress warmly.
Nature’s Fare is also hosting a winter clothing drive, with all clothing being donated to Common Threads, a division of the Arbour, which helps the less fortunate find clothes in times of need.
Anyone attending the movie is encouraged to bring gently used winter clothing to donate to this cause.
Parking will be available in the Monahan Agency parking lot, at Central Hardware on 25th Avenue, and on the street. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., with the movie starting at 5 p.m.
