Charity with Christmas cheer

NBCC and local group hosts drive-in movie, carolers event to raise funds for local charities

Laughter, cheering, and singing will fill the air when NBCC hosts a drive-in movie night on Friday, Nov. 24, at 6:30 P.M.

The movie being played at the event is the holiday classic “Elf” starring Will Ferrell.

Home Zone Electronics is the movie and screen provider, and McConnell Transport will provide the trailer, which will serve as the movie screen backdrop.

To enter the event, guests must pick up a pass before Nov. 24. You can pick up passes at CD Hairwaves or the NBCC campus.

Admission is by donation, with all proceeds going to the NBCC Emergency Food Resource Cupboard and Woodstock High School Backpack Program.

These programs supply over 100 students in the local community with needed food. Both programs raise funds to purchase food for food-insecure students in the local area.

The event, sponsored by Woodstock Tourism and NBCC, will give all attendees a complimentary pop or water and a bag of popcorn provided by Exit Realty Platinum.

Organizer Maryann Walker says people can start to park at 5:30 p.m., with the carolling beginning an hour later. The Palmer family will perform a series of carols. A special guest will be on hand for a tree-lighting ceremony. The movie will follow, with sound broadcast through vehicle radios.

Kelly Shaw will be on site to offer Beavertails and hot donuts during the carol sing and will have nachos for purchase during the movie.
