Everyone seemed to be comfy while they watched The Santa Clause at One Another. A Coffee House on Dec. 13. The event was a fundraiser for the 100 Mile House & District Women's Centre.

Dec. 13 marked the inaugural movie night at One Another. A Coffee House, where community members of various ages came together to watch The Santa Clause and donate food and monetary donations for the 100 Mile House & District Women’s Centre.

People brought food gifts of all kinds, including homemade preserves, says spokesperson Meg Kennedy-Gunn.

Coffee house owner Keith Jackson provided a warm, cozy venue and kept the coffee, tea and hot chocolate bar open late and made popcorn on the stove.

Women’s Centre executive director Sonja Ramsey shared information about the much used diverse services of our Women’s Centre.

South Cariboo Food Security Committee vice-chair Rita Giesbrecht talked about the Share a Meal program in 100 Mile, which enables individuals to purchase coupons in the amount of their choice at participating restaurants around town that is then given out to those who may not have the immediate ability to dine at these locations.

A&B Video donated the movie and Andre’s Electronics provided the big TV and DVD player.

The staff from the Red Rock Grill dropped by to unload several boxes of food for the Women’s Centre.

Kennedy-Gunn says she appreciates everyone who helped make the event a success and those who attended and donated food and money to the Women’s Centre.
