Our local middle school has rented out a theater for the students to watch “Catching Fire” this Friday on opening night. The PTA is selling tickets for $15 including a seat, popcorn, water and a raffle ticket.
I think it’s such an interesting model for a fundraiser. It’s something the kids will really want to do. The school can make some money and the cost is not outrageous. It’s a nice outing for the students too. They are selling tickets through Wednesday and they think they will sell out.
Is your school doing a similar “Catching Fire” fundraiser? Have they ever done movie nights and rented out a theater? (They often do movie nights at the school playing movies outside but I’ve never seen one at a theater.)
Along these same lines: Sesame Street has come out with its version of “The Hungry Games: Catching Fur.” See what you think.
