WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Starting this weekend, you can help fight cancer while at the movie theater in White Plains.
White Plains Amusements theatre is participating in the 64th annual Jimmy Fund/Variety Children's Charities Theatre Collections program. Between June 7 and July 25, Jimmy Fund canisters will be passed around at participating theaters. Donations will help fund adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
“National Amusements and their staff have been invaluable partners with the Jimmy Fund over the years,” Suzanne Fountain, director of the Jimmy Fund, said in a statement. “Their efforts have greatly helped Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund in our fight against adult and pediatric cancer.”
This program has raised $29 million for Dana-Farber since 1949. In addition to New York, there are participating theaters in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey and Ohio.
