Free money

The District of Sooke is looking for groups to operation the concession stands at the Starlight Cinema, and keep the proceeds.

Sports teams, non-profits and causes looking to raise funds have an opportunity to lay their hands on anywhere between $200 to $800. The District of Sooke is once again hosting the Starlight Cinema, an open-air movie at Ed Macgregor Park.

Laura Byrne, who is organizing the event, says the District is currently taking application for groups who want to manage the “front door” and concession. All that needs to be done is to collect the money and hand out the treats.

Byrne says that if an organization can gather at least six adults and any number of responsible youth (who must be supervised), it will be easy money for four hours work (8 p.m. to midnight). The funds raised will be handed over to the designated organization identified in the application.

The most an organization has ever earned, said Byrne, was $850. To enhance their earnings, groups can further promote the event and encourage donations at the “door.” There are four spots available, and the final selection will be by lottery.

To submit you application, visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/sookestarlightcinema. The deadline is July 15. And should it rain on your selected day, fear not, a rain location has been selected: the Sooke Firehall.
