Supernatural powers of philanthropy will converge at the Fremont Outdoor Movies on Saturdays July 3 and 10 to support Solid Ground’s efforts to feed hungry people and shelter homeless families.
In partnership with The Fremont Outdoor movies, CoHo Team of Windermere Agents is hosting what could be a world record Zombie walk in conjunction with a food drive to support hungry folks.
It all happens Saturday, July 3 at 3501 Phinney Ave N. Festivities begin at noon and culminate at 9:30 pm with a screening of the classic Zombie film “Dawn of the Dead.” The day-long “Red, White and Dead Block Party” hopes to attract 10,000 of the fun-loving undead to Fremont in an attempt to reclaim Fremont’s Zombie world record. See all the gory details here.
Zombies and spectators are asked to bring nonperishable food items to support Solid Ground’s Partners in Caring Program, which distributes food to elderly folks and people living with disabilities in Seattle Public Housing. Tickets can be purchased online.
Then on Saturday, July 10, the CoHo team will try to bust its own record of donations to Solid Ground by matching all gate fees and donations for that night’s film, “Ghost Busters.” Donations will be taken at the gate, or before the event online (type “CoHo Team” in the comments section). And while the suggested donation is $5, there’s no limit to what you can give! So come and join the legendary Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver in this ghost and gut busting film. Donations will support Solid Ground’s Family Shelter program.
The line forms for both movies at 7 pm; doors open at 7:30 pm. Bring your own small, comfortable seating. Food and leashed pets are allowed. Questions? Email: email@example.com or call 206.781.4230.
Since 2004 the CoHo Team of Windermere Agents has partnered with Outdoor Movies to support the mission of Solid Ground.
“What better way is there to build community than to get together with people from your neighborhood to share a classic thriller and at the same time help improve the lives of people and families in your community?” said CoHo’s Peter Wolf. The CoHo team is a full-service, socially-responsible real estate team of agents who donate a sizeable fraction of their commissions to a Seattle Foundation fund that supports community development and solutions to poverty. Since 2000, the CoHo Team has contributed over $550,000 to nonprofits working to create strong communities and housing opportunities.
Along with Peter, the Team is made up of founder Will Kemper, Tonya Hennen and the Tara Hennen. Over the past six years, the CoHo team has donated over $32,000 to Solid Ground.
“We love the work of Solid Ground. It provides shelter, food and other basic services to more than 58,000 families and individuals in need throughout King County EACH YEAR!” says Tonya Hennen. “We are pleased to be able to support this fun way to get involved in such meaningful work.”
