Movie night helps SPCA

A sparsely-attended fundraiser at Centre Stage Theatre on Tuesday, Dec. 16 raised $400 for the Penticton SPCA.

A sparsely-attended fundraiser at Centre Stage Theatre on Tuesday, Dec. 16 raised $400 for the Penticton SPCA.

The Summerland Secondary School Civics 11 class hosted a Christmas movie Fred Claus, which attracted fewer than 50 spectators.

“The attendance was lacking, but the people there were very generous,” said Megan Avery, a civics student.

Movie tickets, a 50/50 draw, a food/drink concession and donations all were contributors to the total raised.

“We raised about $10 per person,” said student Palvi Bhardwaj.

Teacher Dave Stathers said newly fallen snow on the roads that evening likely kept some people away.
