Movie Night at the Avenue to benefit CARE

On Friday, October 15, families can watch the movie, “How to Train Your Dragon.” Children’s entertainment and giveaways begin at 6 p.m. followed by the movie at dusk. Popcorn will be sold for $1 with all proceeds benefitting CARE.

CARE (Children at Risk in Education), a program of the Fayette County Public School System, is, now, able to offer After School Program (ASP) scholarships to families of elementary-aged students enrolled in the system’s schools thanks to The Avenue Peachtree City and its patrons.

The scholarships pay for a portion of the ASP tuition for a limited number of weeks. Parents have to pay the other portion of the tuition in order to receive the scholarship.

The Avenue Peachtree City raised over $400 this summer through Movies in the Park and Music in the Park. Although the events were free, the shopping center offered patrons the opportunity to purchase popcorn or glow necklaces for $1, with all proceeds benefitting CARE.

There will also be a Fall Festival on Saturday, October 30 from 3-5 p.m. with trick-or-treating at the stores, free crafts and complimentary photos by Wolf Camera. Donations for CARE will be accepted throughout the event.
