Thank You!

A very special thank you goes out to our friends at Celebration! Cinema for partnering with KDL to present a special event for the movie The Tale of Despereaux on December 20, 2008. This special event raised over $390 for KDL’s early literacy initiatives.

Over 180 guests at Celebration! South and Celebration! Rivertown theaters were treated to a special ticket package that included admission to The Tale of Despereaux, pop, popcorn, games and a drawing for special prizes.  Katie L. and Flick the Movie Kid were on hand to visit with the kids (of all ages).

Thank you to all who attended and supported this wonderful event!

    My son and I enjoyed “The Tale of Despereaux” event very much. One comment, however – the folks at Celebration Cinema (Rivertown, in my case) did not communicate to the ticketing staff very effectively, if at all. I asked for a KDL special event/group ticket for the film and was met with blank stares from both attendants in the ticket window. Unless I had been adamant about it, I don’t think they would have processed the ticket fee appropriately to give you all credit for your group rate efforts.

    I’m glad that my family able to do something for a service we use almost every day, but I wonder how many other families were not able to the same.

    Ruth, first let me thank you for coming to our Tale of Despereaux event. We truly appreciate your support. I’m very sorry that you had a less than perfect experience at the theater. Your comments have been forwarded on to the manager at the theater. Feedback is so very important to us as we plan future special events. Thank you again.
