Girls get dolled up for movies
HUNDREDS of girls will be dressed to the nines tonight for a special screening of the highly anticipated Sex and the City 2 movie, all in the name of charity at Birch Carroll & Coyle Cinemas Lismore.
Local businesswoman Katie O'Rourke, of Cake Marketing, is hosting the sold-out event to raise money and awareness for the NSW Cancer Council Far North Coast.
“I'm hosting the night in the name of my dear friend Holly Marks Denman, who died from cancer last year at only 25 years of age, and Mary-Anne Wilson, a Lismore Base Hospital nurse unit manager who died from the disease a couple of weeks ago,” Ms O'Rourke said.
“They both loved Sex and the City, so I felt this was a fitting tribute to them and an effective way to raise much-needed funds for others suffering with this disease,” she said.
At $30 a ticket, and 250 tickets sold, the charity event has been very successful.
“We're hoping to raise $3000 or more from the event,” she said.
“After the screening we'll make our way to the after-move party at Tommys restaurant for food and cocktails for a gold coin donation.”
“There's going to be two for one cocktails at Tommys, so I'm sure everyone will have a great time.”
Local sponsors have also chipped in and provided the event with a great amount of support.
“Sponsors such as Birch Carroll & Coyle Cinemas, The Northern Star, Tommys, Destiny Skincare & Wellness Clinic and Let's Party have all bent over backwards to make this event happen,” Ms O'Rourke said.
“Smaller businesses have also contributed a lot to the event, donating prizes to be won on the night.”
Prizes will be awarded to those who best embody the characters of the movie, including the Carrie Bradshaw Award, the Manolo Blahnik Award for the lady strutting the best heels, and the Mr Big Award for the most dashing gentleman.
