Membership and Community News

Please Join Amanda Hadlock (mom of Carter) For A Private Screening of Wreck It Ralph


When: Saturday, Nov. 17th


Time 9:00am Sharp! (The first screening of Breaking Dawn starts at 11:20 so we need to be out of the theater by that time.)


Where:      Village Center Cinemas in Airway Heights  10117 W. State Route 2 Spokane Washington, 99224


       This private screening is for pediatric oncology and their immediate families thanks to the gracious folks at Village Center Cinemas. I wrote them a letter explaining how much I would love for Carter to be able to enjoy the movie with the many friends he has made at the hospital, and they decided to do this for us for no charge. Myself and a few other parents will be going in early to wipe down booster seats and arm rests, but feel free to bring a blanket for your in-treatment child to sit on if you would like.

        I only ask that we all do a great job of cleaning up after ourselves, and exiting the theater promptly after the show.

        I am so excited to see you all there! I think this is going to be a great time!!
