Fun for a good cause

Students in Patsy Brock’s Project Business Classes at Webster City Middle School proved Thursday that you’re never to young to pitch in and help a good cause.

The students held a movie day for eighth graders Thursday afternoon which raised enough money to purchase a seat at the Webster Theater. School officials said the funds will be donated to HERO for the Save the Theater project.

Before classes started Thursday morning, students were lined up outside the eighth grade classrooms waiting to make a donation that would allow them to see a popular movie. For $1, the kids received a movie ticket. Another dollar allowed the students to bring in their own beverage. A third dollar meant a bag of freshly popped popcorn. For a fourth dollar, the students were be able to wear their slippers for the day.

The movie titles included “Despicable Me II,” “Frozen,” “Sandlot II,” “Monsters University,” “Little Rascals,” and “Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs II.” The films were shown in the eighth grade classrooms starting at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
