Three Movies and an Auditorium

To help celebrate the 2017 Kaolin Festival, the Sandersville School Building Authority will host three movies related to the festival theme in the auditorium as a fundraiser. The SSBA needs your help to fund the production crew who will outfit the auditorium with the needed equipment to show the movies. The funds will also be used to purchase concession supplies and assist with utilities which will increase due to use of the building during the festival.

Donors who donate $20 and up will have two movie passes (the donor and a guest) to see any or all movies waiting at the auditorium door. Otherwise the entrance fee  will be $5 per person.

The festival theme is "Kaolin Through the Decades... The 50's - Happy Days"! The 1950s were known as the Atomic Age, so with your support three sci-fi / horror movies made in the 1950s will be shown in the Auditorium! One movie will be shown Friday evening, October 13th, the other two on Saturday, October 14th in the afternoon and evening respectively.

Thank you in advance for your support to bring a fun experience to the Kaolin Festival and the historic Sandersville School!  Please click the link below to donate:
