Syracuse, N.Y. – Winter break, need something for your children to do? The community is invited to attend a family movie called Snowmen on Thursday, February 21, from 2 to 3:30 pm., at the Palace Theatre to benefit future wish kids.

A group of children from the Congregation Beth Sholom Chevra Shas Mitzvah Corps wanted to help share the power of a wish® by hosting a movie fundraiser for their Mitzvah service project. Make-A-Wish® Central New York is grateful for the generous support of CNY Auto Auctions, The Palace Theatre and MPower Pictures’ John Shepherd.

The movie is open to the community and the cost is $5, which includes the movie, popcorn and a beverage. In addition, the children hosting the movie event will hold a bake sale during the event. All proceeds from the movie event will go toward fulfilling wishes in Central New York.
