Fight on for Annie presents 'Dirty Dancing Charity Movie Screening' on Friday 3rd November. There will be 2 available showings:
6:15pm & 8:30pm. Tickets £10.
All proceeds go to the local fund Fight on for Annie which was set up in memory of Anne O’Neill in October 2014 and raises money for two UK Pancreatic Cancer Charities.
Fight on for Annie has raised over £45,000 and we want to continue raising funds and awareness of the disease locally to help with early detection.
November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. We have decided to show Dirty Dancing because Patrick Swayze also lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2009 aged only 57. Dirty Dancing is 30 years old this year and this deserves to be celebrated and raise money for a great cause.
For further information please contact Gráinne O’Neill (Founder of Fight on for Annie) on 07754566157 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Tickets can be purchased directly through the Market Place Theatre (best to ring them to avoid the £1 fee online - 028 3752 1821) or Fight on for Annie.
