Moonlight showing of Monster’s University

Interior Savings' Moonlight Movie Tour is showing Monster's University in Ashcroft to help support the Desert Hills Tri Club.

Interior Savings and the Desert Hills Tri Club invite you to grab a picnic blanket and head down to the Ashcroft Pool Park to watch a moonlight screening of Monster’s University on Wednesday, Aug. 20.

The movie will be shown on a giant inflatable cinema screen at sundown. Everyone is encouraged to arrive early to get a good viewing spot and take part in some of the many family-friendly pre-show activities and concessions. While there is no charge to attend the event, a donation of $3 per person or $10 for a family of four is suggested. All funds raised will benefit the Ashcroft Kids’ Try-Athlon.

“We are delighted to be able to partner with Interior Savings and be part of the Moonlight Movie Tour,” says Vicky Trill of the Desert Hills Tri Club. “I hope everyone will take the opportunity to enjoy this unique movie experience with friends and family. Proceeds from the event will help us raise funds to provide the annual Ashcroft Kids’ Try-Athlon which provides a free opportunity for kids to “try” sport in a fun and inclusive way.”

“With the Interior Savings Moonlight Movie Tour, we are able to provide a family-friendly, free night out while raising money and awareness for youth programs in the community,” says Kathy Conway, CEO of Interior Savings. “To date, this tour has raised over $85,000 for local programs that help youth develop leadership and life skills.” The Aug. 20 screening is one of eight movie nights taking place throughout the Thompson and Okanagan in August.

Pre-show activities will start at 7 pm with the movie scheduled to start at sundown. Join in the pre-show activities and win prizes! There will also be a concession available with snacks and other fun items for purchase. Please bring your own blankets and lawn chairs, to be comfortable and warm.

Also supporting the event is the Ashcroft Elementary School P.A.C.
