Sounds like somebody needs to sing a Christmas Carol because “Elf” is coming to the Lark Theatre on Sunday, December 11th for a private showing of the holiday classic film along with a visit from, OH MY GOD....Santa, I know him! And an amazing silent auction and other fun surprises. 

The film will be followed by a delicious holiday reception at Left Bank complete with drinks, hors d'oerves, hot chocolate, sweets and activities.  Created in part by local family Bruce, Allyn and George Campbell, the event is a fundraiser for Pacific Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium Foundation. 

When Bruce and Allyn’s son George was diagnosed with a pediatric brain tumor, they learned there was no known cure. Because of a lack of funding for research, little progress has been made in improving pediatric brain cancer survival rates for the most deadly tumors and the public remains unaware of the magnitude of this disease.

Today, George is doing extremely well and hoping to raise funds to help other kids he met during his treatment. Support George and his family in this 2nd annual fundraising event for children diagnosed with this life-threatening medical condition by purchasing your tickets online. This is a highly anticipated event, and space is limited, so get your tickets early. 

If you’re unable to attend, you can sponsor a pediatric patient and their family to attend the event.  You can also make a direct donation at www.pnocfoundation.org.   

And in the spirit of the character Buddy in the movie…the best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear. It's just like talking, except longer and louder, and you move your voice up and down.  

Find your inner sELF and…Discover the difference you can make in the lives of others!

*In the year 2014, there were approximately 23, 000 children living with a central nervous system tumor in the US. An estimated 4,000 more children will be diagnosed with a brain tumor this year.

During 1999-2014, brain cancer replaced leukemia as the most common cancer causing death among children and adolescents aged 1-19 years, accounting for 3 out of 10 cancer deaths in 2014.
