HFC Family Movie Day Dallas 2011

On Saturday, June 4, 2011, Heroes for Children and HFC Friends Dallas, our Women's Auxiliary, hosted the third annual HFC Family Movie Day at Studio Movie Grill for metroplex-area families HFC has served over the last year. We welcomed a total of 155 people, 27 families, at this year's movie day featuring a private viewing of Kung Fu Panda 2 in Studio Movie Grill's largest theater, complete with complimentary lunch, drink and popcorn. Attendees were greeted at the door by HFC Friends volunteers, had a family photo taken and escorted into their theater where volunteers manned a "tattoo station" where kiddos could line up and choose their favorite

Kung Fu Panda 2 stick on tattoos to be put on and wear during the movie!
As the movie played volunteers put together goodies for each family to take home including movie giveaways provided by Paramount Studios like small and large movie posters and stick on movie themed tattoos as well as a printed family photo taken upon guests arrival. Each family was so gracious thanking HFC volunteers and staff for such a wonderful event allowing their entire family to particpate in and provide a sense of "normalcy" during the difficult battle of having a child with cancer.
