‘Hop’ helps post prom, other local organizations

By on March 28, 2012

The Ephrata Main Theatre will be showing the Easter-themed movie "Hop" to raise money for local charities.

All showings are at noon and open to the public on the following dates:

? Saturday, March 31, benefits The Ephrata Cloister

? Sunday, April 1, benefits Ephrata Area Social Services

? Friday, April 6, benefits Ephrata Post Prom

? Saturday, April 7, EPAC

? Easter Sunday, April 8, benefits the Ephrata Public Library

? Monday, April 9, benefits the Ephrata Women’s Club

All tickets are $5 at the door, and $1 from every ticket sold and 10 percent of the concession sales will go directly to that day’s charity.

The funding is especially crucial for the Ephrata Post Prom committee, which is currently looking for more volunteers for the event (Memorial Day weekend). Help is needed with set-up and clean-up the night of the post prom. Any time would greatly be appreciated. It takes many to put on an event such as this.

Help would begin May 24 in the evening with loading trucks and hanging plastic. Assistance is also needed May 25 with hanging plastic in the high school cafeteria and beginning set-up. May 26 and 27 would consist of continuing set-up, working the community open house 6:30 to 8 p.m., working the event 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., and cleaning starting at 11 a.m.

Anyone interested in volunteering any time during the event May 26 from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. should contact Lisa Kachel, volunteer coordinator at kachel@dejazzd.com. Anyone interested in helping with set-up, open house and/or clean-up should contact Patti at hackmanpj67@aol.com or 721-7721.

Volunteers are also needed to help with painting and glittering decorations, Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

New York City fundraising bus trips for next fall and spring have been for Nov. 10 and April 27. Seat reservations will begin Sept. 1 for the November trip by contacting Patti at hackmanpj67@aol.com or 721-7721.
