ANNOUNCING GEORGIA THEATRE COMPANY’S NINTH ANNUAL “FILM AND FOOD FOR A CAUSE” EVENT ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2012
Georgia Theatre Company announces the ninth annual “Film & Food for a Cause” event which will span twenty-one counties, all twenty-seven of their movie theatre locations in the state of Georgia, and at least 80 local restaurants with all proceeds from ticket and concession sales on the event date, Sunday, September 23, going directly to local charities within their communities.
This year in our local areas, the funds raised will go towards the Athens Community Council on Aging, Extra Special People, and United Way of NEGA.
Last year, over $113,800 was raised at the fifteen participating theatres (with an additional $45,000 spent by GTC to put on this great event for last year’s date alone).
Advance Tickets are available through Saturday 9/22/12. For a twelve dollar advance ticket donation (or six dollar advance ticket donation in select markets for Value Cinema locations), each customer receives admission to the film of their choice on the event date of Sunday 9/23/12, a special popcorn and soft-drink combo from the concession stand, and a packet of valuable coupons from participating restaurants. In addition, all regular ticket and concession purchases on event day go to the event total amount to be donated.
To date this event has raised $470,500 on this unique one-day annual event and this year, with the expansion to include all Georgia locations, that amount is anticipated to increase significantly.
