Cast of Go With Me signs book which will be raffled off to raise funds for the Enderby food bank

Hollywood is helping the hungry in Enderby.

A copy of Eastle Freeman’s Go With Me is being raffled off, with all donations going to the Feed Enderby and District Food Bank. The book has been autographed by the cast of the movie of the same name.

“People can enter as many times as they want with every donation they provide,” said Rick Dugdale, producer of Go With Me and president of Enderby Entertainment, which is named after his hometown.

Go With Me, which stars Anthony Hopkins, Ray Liotta, Alexander Ludwig and Julia Stiles was filmed in Enderby, Armstrong, Lumby and Vernon in late 2014.

Along with the book there is the possibility that the winner will also be invited to a secret event.

Contest entries of cash or non-perishable food items can be made at Enderby city hall, Hungry Jack’s and Sutherland’s Bakery, with the draw taking place Dec. 22.

Dugdale visits Enderby regularly and he is aware of the challenges some residents face.

“At this time of year, you are thinking of Christmas dinner and then you realize some people don’t have that option. It’s not a good feeling,” he said.

But Dugdale points out that Enderby residents are known for their generosity and he believes the fundraiser will be a success.

“I hope we have boxes and boxes of food at city hall,” he said.

Dugdale’s willingness to lend a hand is garnering praise from Feed Enderby.

“Rick wants to continue to give to the community. He hasn’t forgot Enderby,” said Scott Hemenway, food bank chairperson.

Because of the interest the film generated in the community, Mayor Greg McCune expects the fundraiser will be popular.

“It’s a great time for giving right now and it’s pretty exciting,” he said.

It’s anticipated that Go With Me could be in theatres at the end of March.

“We are putting a marketing plan together and working with distributors on the Canadian release,” said Dugdale.

The film was shown in Venice in the fall and more recently at film festivals in Texas and Sweden.

“The response has been good,” said Dugdale.
