Know what I’ve been doing in my spare time? Arranging a movie screening. Seriously. I’m super excited about it. A group of women from my work have come together to make this happen, and I’m leading the project to bring the movie Girl Rising to Reno on Thursday, June 6. I mentioned before that I was getting involved with the local charity, Think Kindness. The CEO of Think Kindness, Brian Williams, offered to partner with us to host the screening, and thankfully he has hosted charity movie screenings before and he is laying all the framework for this to happen. The event is also sponsored by the Junior League of Reno, who is helping to promote the event.
Girl Rising journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change a girl – and the world. Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez and other acclaimed actors contribute voice performances to the film, which features original music from Academy Award winner Rachel Portman and Grammy Award winner Lorne Balfe.
Watch Girl Rising, and you will agree: One girl with courage is a revolution. You will walk away feeling an overwhelming sense of pride, triumph and many other emotions. Invite your friends, daughters, sons, nieces, nephews, mothers and fathers — share the power of education. Please note the film is rated PG-13.
We only have 160 seats, and this is sure to sell out. Buy tickets in advance for $10/$15 at the door. The direct link to the ticket sales site is this: http://www.thinkkindness.org/girl-rising/
If you live in Reno, please join us for a night that could very well change your life!
