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.
