Angels & Demons Charity Movie Screening

Angels & Demons Charity Movie Screening

04 May 2009

On Thursday 14th May, the Rotary Club of Mallow will host a special charity movie screening of Angels & Demons at The Gate Cinema, Market Square, Mallow. All funds raised from the screening are in aid of International Polio Eradication and COPE Foundation.

Tickets for the event are €25 and guests will enjoy a Wine Reception at 7.30pm sponsored by O'Donovan's Off License, Market Square; with entertainment by the John Bermingham Singers. This will be followed by the screening at 8.15pm of the much anticipated film adaptation of Dan Brown's novel of the same name, which is due for general release on May 15; so the lucky ones with tickets for this special Rotary screening will have the chance to see it before everybody else. Tickets are available at National Irish Bank, Market Square and Sugrue Electronics.

The Rotary Club of Mallow is a voluntary club of members which raises funds through various events throughout the year, such as this movie screening, with all the proceeds raised supporting local charities such as COPE Foundation.

COPE Foundation provides a comprehensive range of services for 1600 children and adults with an intellectual disability through its system of early intervention, schooling, training, adult day services, supported employment, housing, information and advice, at over 60 locations throughout Cork City and County. Jerry Mullane, COPE Foundation said "COPE Foundation is indebted to the many voluntary fundraisers and fundraising committees throughout the City and County; such as The Rotary Club of Mallow. The ongoing support of the community and especially the corporate sector is essential if COPE Foundation is to continue with its development projects."

Also benefitting from this screening of Angels & Demons at The Gate Cinema Mallow is "International Polio Eradication". Rotary made polio eradication its top priority in 1985, and since then, Polio cases have fallen from 350,000 a year to just a 1,000. 125 endemic countries has been reduced to just four; Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and Pakistan. Rotary members in Great Britain and Ireland have raised £10.5 million to date.

Bernie Evans, President of the Rotary club of Mallow said: "Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating Polio, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. And it is through fundraisers like our upcoming movie screening we can help to do this."
