There was a great turnout for the Second Annual Christmas Family Movie Night in 100 Mile House on Dec. 11. Families and friends wore comfy clothes and enjoyed The Polar Express while collecting food and funds for the 100 Mile House & District Women's Centre Society.

Around 30 people wearing pyjamas and comfy clothes enjoyed watching the Christmas classic movie, The Polar Express, at the Second Annual Christmas Family Movie Night on a big screen at The Bicycle Tree Eatery & Espresso Bar in 100 Mile House on Dec. 11.

The event was a fundraiser with all proceeds – more than $200 and around $500 worth of food donations – going to the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre, which serves women in 100 Mile House and area.

Meg Kennedy-Gunn, one of the event organizers, says the evening was a “great” event, with all of the children receiving a gift.

This event is all about celebrating the holiday season, coming together and seeing a great Christmas film – fun for all ages, says one of the organizers Meg Kennedy-Gunn.

We are all incredibly grateful to all who participated through donation of time, items, and space. Small acts of kindness can make a ‘big’ difference!”
