KSparkle and Girl Rising
As passionate supporters of “Room to Read” KSparkle Inc. is thrilled to be one of the first to bring an inspiring new film, Girl Rising, to Melbourne. The film was created by 10×10, 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 from her own country 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 we are really excited to be involved in a global effort for girls’ education. http://www.girlrising.com/
Tickets are $35 ph and all net profits from our showing of Girl Rising ticket sales will help fund Room to Read programs for girls, so seeing the film literally makes an impact on girls’ lives. http://www.roomtoread.org/melbourne
We thank FareWell Catering and Buxton Ridge Wines for their assistance and we are indebted to Katrina’s former school, Genazzano College, for allowing us to host this unique event on Friday 9th August. The evening will commence at 7.30pm with delicious finger food served and wine available for purchase prior to the showing of the film. All bookings to be made at www.trybooking.com/DECD
