GAINESVILLE - Cinema for a Cause returns to Gainesville this weekend to benefit United Way of Hall County.
All 32 of Georgia Theater Company's locations participate in this annual event (now in its 10th year) by selecting a local charity to receive 100 percent of the day's proceeds, including ticket and concession sales.
Last year's Cinema for a Cause event in Gainesville raised more than $9,000 on behalf of United Way of Hall County and more than $166,900 throughout the chain of Georgia Theatre locations.
"We were honored to be selected again as the 2013 recipient of the Cinema for a Cause event," says Jackie Wallace, president and chief professional officer of United Way of Hall County. "The money raised during this day gives us the ability to significantly affect the lives of those living right here in our community. United Way supports community programs that address education, income and health, the basic building blocks of a good life for all. So by supporting United Way, we support each other."
Advance tickets (regular pricing for all movies) for the event will be available at the Hollywood Stadium Cinemas on Dawsonville Highway in Gainesville beginning at 6:00 Tuesday, September 17 through event day, Sunday, September 22.
