Mingara, Australia: Outdoor Movie Showing to Raise Funds for Several Central Coast Charities
IT'S ONE for the young and the young at heart this weekend.
United Way Central Coast Community Chest is hosting an open air movie night at Mingara Recreation Club to raise money for the charity.
The movie showing will be the family-friendly comedy Bedtime Stories, starring Adam Sandler.
The movie is about a hotel handyman whose life changes when the bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to come true.
But it won't just be the movie on offer as entertainment.
There will also be children's rides, stalls, food and live entertainment for the whole family to enjoy, United Way Central Coast Community Chest's Kate Morris said.
Also on the night the charity will be handing over cheques to some of its beneficiaries.
United Way Central Coast Community Chest has served the Central Coast since 1980 and supports more than 85 Central Coast charities working with children, families, disabilities, youth, welfare and the elderly.
All of the funds raised stay on the Central Coast.
Some of the Central Coast charities the chest supports are Camp Breakaway, Central Coast Cancer Council, Coast Shelter and Wyong Hospital's auxiliary group. So come along to the event, have some fun and help support those less fortunate on the coast, Ms Morris said. Bedtime Stories screens on Saturday, January 16, at the Gatorade Regional Athletics Centre, at Mingara. Gates open at 4pm and the entertainment starts at 5pm. The movie will screen from 8pm. Entry is by gold coin donation with all proceeds raised support The United Way Central Coast Community Chest.
