Screening for cancer

A Cloverdale family participating in the 2013 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer is hosting a movie matinee Saturday to benefit the cause.

The Christmas movie – the title of which is being kept under wraps – will show at 10:30 a.m. at the Clova Cinema, located at 5732 176 St.

Proceeds from admission – tickets are $5 – will go towards a $47,000 fundraising goal set by the George family, who are participating in the ride for the second time.

Dave George – a lymphoma survivor in his third year of remission – will ride with sons Kevin, Trevor and Cameron, along with 14 others who comprise The Lymphomaniacs.

The ride, in its fifth year, takes place June 15 and 16, from Vancouver to Seattle.

Santa is to also make an appearance at the theatre Saturday, posing for pictures by donation starting at 9:30 a.m.

Tickets are limited. To reserve, or to learn more about the movie, email leeahgeorge@hotmail.ca
