Movie night to help young cancer patients
Children's Cancer Community (CCC) of Sonoma plans it second annual movie night fundraiser, to be held at Cornerstone Sonoma on Friday, Oct. 14, from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. The event benefits CCC's support of children diagnosed with cancer and their families, by funding college scholarship and family assistance programs.
The theme of this year's event is "British Invasion" and features films by rock 'n' roll legends from the British Isles as well as some of the all-time great British comedies. A full-length movie screening will complete the evening's festivities.
Along with beer and wine servings by local producers, fish and chips are on the menu, catered by master English restaurant entrepreneur Paul Stokeld of Santa Rosa's Toad in the Hole.
Attendees are invited to try out their Halloween costume early and get their "Hippie" on for the costume contest. Prizes will be awarded for the best looking man and woman in period chic.
Silent auction items include many Wine Country specialties.
Children's Cancer Community was founded in 1997 by Michelle Bertrand, a teenage cancer survivor, and is dedicated to providing a support network of information, companionship and hope to children living with cancer and their families. The program focus is in Sonoma County, with support extending throughout the North Bay to Marin, Napa and Solano counties. There is no charge to the children's family for any CCC services.
