A charity screening of The Mighty Macs will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 28, at the Narberth Stadium 2 Theater, 129 N. Narberth Ave., in Narberth.
The showing benefits the Narberth Community Food Bank.
Viewers are asked to donate $5 and bring one canned item per person. The film will be shown on two screens so as to accommodate 400 people.
Doors will open at 9:15 a.m.
The benefit is sponsored by a group of parents from St. Margaret School in Narberth, the theater owner and the food bank.
The organizers' goal is to fill both theaters with students and families from both the parish community and elsewhere - anyone who didn't get to see The Mighty Macs when the film was released in October.
The Narberth Community Food Bank is located in the United Narberth Methodist Church, at 206 Price Ave., around the corner from St. Margaret's.
"It's important to all of us to find ways to help the needy, especially in our immediate community," said school parent organizer Chris Maguire.
The Mighty Macs is a true story about Immaculata College's team, whose coach, Cathy Rush, faced challenges as imposing as those faced by big-school coaches.
She had no gymnasium, no fan support and no money. To top it off, she didn’t know sometimes if she’d have enough players to field a team.
Did she triumph? We’re not giving away the ending..
