Fernie Women’s Resource Centre
“Trick or Treat at the Movies,” a benefit for the Fernie Women’s Resource Centre’s emergency fund, is back by popular demand! At noon on Sunday, October 28 families and children are invited to come in costume to watch Hotel Transylvania 2! Every child will receive a prize and enjoy a fun afternoon in support of a great cause. This event is made possible by the generous donations of the Vogue Theatre and Rockies Law.

Tickets are available for $5 at Grow, Rockies Law, and the Fernie Women’s Resource Centre - last year they sold out, so get them before they’re gone!
