MORE UPDATES: By popular demand, Old Town Theater will have another screening on June 5th so grab your tickets now before they're sold out again! 

UPDATE: We did it! We got 100 tickets in practically no time. Thanks for your help in getting this inspiring movie screened! 

The Alexandria chapter of Dining for Women wants to show the amazing documentary Girl Rising at their newly-renovated Old Town theater on Wednesday May 29, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. - and they can do it only if they get 100 seats reserved by May 17.

Help make this happen by getting your tickets now!

A little background:

The film was created by 10x10, a global campaign to educate and empower girls. Girl Rising tells the stories of 9 girls from around the world who face -and overcome - unbelievable obstacles on the path toward getting an education. Each girl's story was written by an author and is narrated by a cast of great actresses, including Meryl Streep, Kerry Washington, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keys, and others. The cinematography is stunning and I really am excited to see the film, and to be involved in a global effort for girls' education.
