Films in Van Vorst is happening again this year. This summer we will screen one movie every other Wednesday, beginning June 7th, for a total of eight movies. The city has already given us their thumbs up and have added us to their summer cultural calendar.
However, we are in need of more funds to run the project. We are looking for sponsors from the local business community who would like to help fund this initiative and for volunteers who might be interested in helping out in fundraising, graphic design (posters, cards), and audio-visual (setup/take-down).
Donations from individuals are also welcome. We are a non-profit organization and your contribution will be tax-exempt. All our team members work on a volunteer basis and the money collected all goes towards purchase and maintenance of equipment, publicity and movie rentals.
If you are interested in sponsoring or helping out in any way please send us an email to: filmsinvanvorst[at]gmail[dot]com
