Rocky Horror Picture Show screening to raise money for Justice Society

The North Peace Justice Society is taking the Rocky Horror Picture Show to the big screen in their annual fundraising event.

For the sixth year in a row, guests will be dressing up and watching the film in style tomorrow night at The Lido.

Candace Peever with the NPJS said the fundraiser made $7,000 last year. The fundraiser covers the operational needs of the NPJS’s restorative justice program.

This is the main fundraiser NPJS puts together each year, and Peever says there’s a reason for that.

“We’re not your typical non-profit,” said executive director Candace Peever. “It’s hard to put a kind face to a justice program. We do run into a lot of trouble coming up with fun ways to fund our program.”

But she said that people get excited to come out to the show – about 160 people on average attend.

“It’s a way to lure people in to learn about us!” she laughed. “They get the basics about what the program is. … It lets everybody know that we do exist, and we work in our community – we do make a difference.”

The tickets are $25. Tickets for reserved seats, bought in advance, at $30, and tickets at the door at $35. A prop bag is included with a ticket, and the prices don’t include GST.

Doors open at 7:00 PM, and the show starts at 8:00 PM.
