‘The Grinch’ premiere to support families

Camana Bay is hosting a special showing of “The Grinch” to support local families in need over the holiday season as part of its annual Christmas Give. The community is invited to be first to see the new movie and participate in other activities while supporting the cause.

Tickets to the special premiere are $15 per person and must be purchased in advance at the Camana Bay Visitor Centre. The show time is Thursday, Nov. 8 at 6 p.m. at Camana Bay Cinema.

All the funds raised will be donated to the Good Samaritan Food Bank, an organization committed to ending hunger.

To receive a voucher for a free small popcorn, moviegoers may bring non-perishable food items to donate when purchasing a ticket or on the night of the film and drop them at the Visitor Centre.

Director of the Good Samaritan Food Bank, the Rev. Charles Boucher, officially opened the doors of the Cayman Food Bank on Dec. 14, 2017. Located in an industrial warehouse on George Town’s Sleepy Hollow Drive, the food bank is an outgrowth of the food pantry that Mr. Boucher and his wife, Manon, started in 2008 at the First Assembly of God church.

Since opening, the Food Bank has distributed over 13,000 pounds of food to more than 900 people, according to operations manager Phillip Hyre.
