100 children were treated to a movie night at the Gail Britoe Foundation in Eldorado Park extension two last night.
Celeste and Wesley Greaver, who were the organizers, said that the reason why they chose to have a movie night was because many children in Eldorado Park haven’t had the opportunity to go to the movies.
“So many of our children don’t even know what the inside of a movie theatre looks like so tonight is all about them, we want them to feel special and have fun,” said Celeste Greaver.
The children started arriving at 6pm and walked down a red carpet to show off their outfits.
The children received hot dogs and juice before the movie started and popcorn was provided during the movie.
“The idea behind this is for the children to have a real movie experience, what’s a movie without popcorn?” said Greaver.
Ensley Britoe, founder of the Gail Britoe Foundation said that the movie night was a dream come true.
” I have been trying for years to take those who are less fortunate to the movies but tonight the movies was brought to us, this is something our children will never forget,” he said.
Celeste and Wesley Greaver said that they plan to host movie nights in all the Eldorado Park extensions.
