Willy Wonka Movie Night Fundraiser

Whew. We did it! Another successful movie night under our belt.

Earlier tonight, Books For Less hosted a "Movie Under the Stars" event to benefit our mission trip to India. They showed Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory and nearly 100 people were there. Yeah!

The movie was free, but we did have a concession stand. Also, as an incentive, we played along with the Willy Wonka theme and sold Hershey Bars with tickets taped to the back. Three tickets were the "golden tickets" and came with a prize.

I've never seen such a mad rush for chocolate in my life!

Overall, we made $213 to go towards the mission trip. Fantastic!

A big thank-you to Buddy & Cherie for lending their space, the Rhys Family & the Parker girls for working the concession stand and for setting up, all the Cornerstone guys who helped tear down the "theater" after the movie, and especially everyone who attended and made the night a success.

Don't forget that next month we're showing Jurassic Park. Mark it on your calendar.

Until then, here are some pictures from tonight's event:
