Bullies beware, a special-themed event planned to coincide with a FREE motion picture screening of the film “Wonder” is set for Friday evening, August 10th, 2018, in Madera.
The event, which will take place at Lion’s Town & Country Park, will feature special guest speakers, games, prizes, and a free raffle (grade school–college students only) for what the Parks Department teases as an “Apple-MAZING” gift – a computer generously donated by the United Way of Fresno & Madera Counties. Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.
Guests will include Madera Unified School District, City of Madera Police Department, Love Madera, Youth Leadership Institute-Central Valley Region, United Way Fresno and Madera Counties, Fresno FC, Grocery Outlet, Reading Heart, and many more!
Additional Information: The City of Madera Parks & Community Services Department is pleased to have partnered with PG&E who has supported the eight-week summer movie series with annual grant dollars. Space is limited; it is advisable to arrive early for optimal seating. No alcoholic beverages or pets will be permitted. Parking is limited. Questions should be directed to David Huff, Community Programs Supervisor, at (559) 661-5479 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
