On Dec. 7, at the Lido Theater in Newport Beach, the Exchange Club of Newport Harbor will host its annual movie event. This year the club will be screening the Christmastime classic, "Miracle on 34th Street." What a great way to get in the mood for Christmas.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a food festival sponsored by 14 restaurants. The movie will be shown at 7 p.m. Tickets are $75 and $125 for VIPs with VIP ticket holders, who are entitled to free parking and preferred seating. All ticket holders get a free T-shirt, unlimited food sampling that evening, courtesy of the sponsoring restaurants, admission to the movie and the knowledge that your donation will go toward helping prevent child abuse!
Proceeds from the event go to the prevention of child abuse and other youth activities in the community. Last year alone, the movie event generated $60,000 for the prevention of child abuse, more than $20,000 in scholarships to students and teachers, and more than $5,000 to other charities. To buy tickets or for more information, call (949) 887-6788. Contributions are tax deductible.
