Outdoor movie centerpiece of RCC fundraiser tomorrow

May 30, 2014 9:59am

What are you doing tomorrow night? If the answer is, “Hmmm, not sure,” here’s a thought: See a sweet movie and give to a good cause.

Our good friends at Richmond Cycling Corps — a local non-profit that provides leadership and personal development to Richmond’s urban youth through the sport of cycling — are putting on an outdoor movie night and party at their Scott’s Addition. The party starts at 7:30 p.m., the movie at 8:30, and the price, which includes popcorn, is just $7.

What’s the movie, you ask? The RCC crew will be screening Singletrack High, “a one of a kind film about high school age mountain bike racers competing in National Interscholastic Cycling Association events.” All the proceeds will help fund the Armstrong High School cycling team. Started by RCC in late 2013, Armstrong’s is the nation’s first inner-city high school cycling team. These funds will help supply equipment and travel expenses as the team takes part in the NICA league this fall.SHPosterWeb-194x300

The party is BYOB, but Isley Brewing Company is literally right next door to the party. Kind of works out perfectly, no? So bring a picnic or ride your bike over and make it a ride-in movie. Good times. Good cause.
