24-Hour Movie Marathon Benefits Children’s Leukemia Foundation

Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan

Are you a movie fan?  Most of us are.  We love to go to the movies, munch on popcorn and get lost in a wonderful movie.

Your chance to really lose yourself for 24-hours is coming in June, and you’ll be able to help children with Leukemia at the same time.

Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan has announced a Hollywood Nights 24-hour movie marathon fundraiser to support the patients and families in West Michigan.
The Hollywood Nights fundraiser has been a box-office hit for more than 10 years in Southeast Michigan. The West Michigan debut, sponsored by Metro Health Hospital and Celebration! Cinema, will be held June 21 – 22 at Celebration! Cinema Grand Rapids North, 2121 Celebration Dr., NE in Grand Rapids.
Grand Rapids has a new office for the Children’s Leukemia Foundation, and monies raised will go to support the work being done which provides information, financial assistance and emotional support to nearly 800 families across West Michigan.
More than half the clients they serve are at or below the poverty level, requiring them to make tough decisions about already-stretched financial resources. All CLF programs and services are free, which makes fundraising efforts like Movie Marathon and other events extremely important.
Participants who raise more than $100 in pledges by June 21 are invited to participate in the event, which features:

• A 24-hour movie marathon featuring admission to all first-run movies currently screening at Celebration
• Unlimited popcorn and soft drinks, along with a “swag bag” full of candy and other goodies
• Prizes for the top three fundraisers
• Red carpet photos
• Lunch and dinner on June 21, a midnight snack and a continental breakfast on June 22
• Choose-your-own raffle
• Stay-and-play package available at Riverfront Hotel

I think I’m in heaven.  All the movies I want to watch, and all the popcorn I can eat?  Be still my heart!

Check in for the fundraiser will begin at 9:30 a.m. on June 21, with show times beginning at 10 a.m.

Register for the event and find out more at http://leukemiamichigan.org/. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
Hollywood Nights is the second fundraiser CLF will hold in West Michigan. The first, CRUSH Grand Rapids, also raised funds for CLF’s West Michigan office. Like the CRUSH event, all proceeds from the Hollywood Nights fundraiser will stay in West Michigan to serve local families and individuals.
For every $1 donated to CLF, approximately 83 cents goes directly to patient and family programs and services.
