Outdoor movie night coming to Georgia Ave: help the organizers make it happen with a small donation


Georgia Avenue Thrive, the all-volunteer community group active in and around the street, is hosting an outdoor movie night on July 23, featuring Zootopia, plus popcorn, water and a story time for kids before the movie. 

However, putting on an event like this costs money, and they need some help with some of the costs like equipment and space rental, insurance, licensing and more. They have a Crowdrise page to raise money for it, and any donations are tax deductible because they're a registered 501(c)3 non-profit. Please check it out and help them out if you can! It sounds like a great event.

Here's more about the event:
THE STORY:

Help us to bring the first ever (that we know of) outdoor movie night to Georgia Avenue in Park View. This is an activity brought to you by Georgia Avenue neighbors for Georgia Avenue neighbors -- especially kids, parents and friends of kids and parents! Come join us on Saturday evening, July 23, at 3400 Georgia Avenue NW. The family-friendly movie is FREE and so is the popcorn and water. Walls of Books (3325 Georgia Ave) will be hosting a storybook reading at 8pm and then movie starts at sundown (about 8:30pm).  
Georgia Ave Thrive is an all-volunteer group of neighbors that was initially created last summer in response to increased crime in the area. Now we work on building an inclusive, connected, and vibrant community for the neighbors, businesses, and visitors of Lower Georgia Avenue. Check us out on Facebook @ GeorgiaAvenueThrive. 
Georgia Avenue Thrive has partnered with Collaborative Solutions for Communities(CSC) http://wearecsc.org / a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization to serve as our fiscal sponsor this event and all donations are fully tax deductible. Funds raised will offset the costs of equipment and space rental, licensing, insurance and other costs that directly support this event.
