“Supper and a Classic Movie,” a fundraiser for Samaritan House Homeless Family Shelter, will be at Atonement Lutheran Church’s Fellowship Hall in Newport on Thursday, February 19. A supper of soup, bread, and cookies will be at 5:45, followed by the film.
The title of the film cannot be revealed due to licensing requirements, but it involves a 1948 “dream house,” and stars Cary Grant and Myrna Loy in top comedic form. It’s credited with being the original story version of the nearly 40-years-later 1986 comedy hit ‘The Money Pit’ starring Tom Hanks and Shelly Long.
There will be no charge for the event, but everyone is encouraged to make a donation to Samaritan House.
Children are welcome to attend the event, but must remain with their parents as no child care is available that evening.
Sponsors for the event include Thrivent Financial, Atonement Lutheran Church, and Samaritan House executive board members. Samaritan House, Inc. is a 501c(3) charitable organization based in Lincoln County. The program has also developed from an emergency overnight shelter to a full program of shelter and transitional housing with classes on parenting and nutrition, employment guidance, budgeting and renter education, and general counseling.
Fund-raising activities include First Wednesday Dine-Outs supported by local restaurants as well as the annual Secret Garden Tour and Gala Dinner. Further information about Samaritan House programs and donation opportunities is available on its website, www.samfamshelter.org.
